"Nothing Short of Blackmail"
That's how California State Senate leader Kevin de León describes Attorney General Jeff Sessions' threat to strip DOJ funding from sanctuary cities.
This, when the Trump Administration has "taken the shackles off" of ICE agents (one of whom shot a man in Chicago yesterday), DREAMers keep getting detained, and the Cardinal of the Archdiocese of Chicago has ordered his priests to demand a warrant before letting ICE agents in church doors.
Perhaps AG Sessions could focus on more pressing matters, like a new lawsuit by 23 plaintiffs in five states against his "false and misleading testimony" that he didn't have contact with Russian officials?
