NY A.G. Announces Win in Suit Over Sanctuary City Defunding

(Bloomberg) -- New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood says today’s decision in suit over public safety funds blocks the Trump administration’s policy in all plaintiff jurisdictions.

  • Says decision invalidates the grant conditions, mandating that the U.S. DOJ reissue the grant award letters without the conditions, and enjoins the DOJ from imposing conditions moving forward
  • NOTE: In July 2017, the DOJ announced conditions to limit funding to states that complied with federal immigration law
  • NOTE: Sept. 14, L.A. Wins Order Against U.S. Over Sanctuary City Defunding
