Trump admin ramps up pressure on sanctuary communities

WASHINGTON–The Trump administration ramped up its pressure Monday on so-called sanctuary communities, touting a new round of legal challenges in Washington state and New Jersey in an attempt to force cooperation with federal immigration enforcement authorities.

Attorney General William Barr, speaking to a National Sheriffs’ Association conference, also announced that the Justice Department is reviewing the actions of “certain” local prosecutors, claiming that they have engaged in charging foreign nationals with lesser offenses to shield them from deportation.

“In pursuing their personal ambitions and misguided notions of equal justice, these district attorneys are systematically violating the rule of law and may even be unlawfully discriminating against American citizens,” Barr asserted.

The action against prosecutors sets the attorney general, the nation’s chief law enforcement officer, on a potential collision course with a host of elected district attorneys who have actively resisted the administration’s immigration enforcement policies.
