IT'S FINISHED: After Chicago SUES Trump's JD, Jeff Sessions SILENCED THEM With A TREATING Message
After the City of Chicago filed a lawsuit against the Justice Department with a threat to withhold federal money from the sanctuary cities, Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired back this Monday saying that 'no amount of money will help a city that won’t help its own residents.'
Here's what Jeff Sessions had to say for the City of Chicago:
'This administration is committed to the rule of law and to enforcing the laws established by Congress. To a degree perhaps unsurpassed by any other jurisdiction, the political leadership of Chicago has chosen deliberately and intentionally to adopt a policy that obstructs this country’s lawful immigration system,'- he said.

Chicago's Mayor Rahm Emanuel accused the Justice Department that this was 'blackmail.'
'Chicago will not be blackmailed into changing our values, and we are and will remain a welcoming city,' the mayor said. 'The federal government should be working with cities to provide necessary resources to improve public safety, not concocting new schemes to reduce our crime-fighting resources.' said Mayor Emanuel.
Jeff Session came back with fire in his words saying that the City of Chicago has chosen to protect 'criminal aliens who prey on their own residents instead of enforcing laws meant to protect law enforcement,'- According to Fox News.
'The city’s leaders cannot follow some laws and ignore others and reasonably expect this horrific situation to improve,' Jeff Sessions continued.
'Rahm Emanuel complained that the federal government’s focus on enforcing the law would require a reordering of law enforcement practice in Chicago,’ - AG Sessions said. 'But that’s just what Chicago needs: a recommitment to the rule of law and to policies that roll back the culture of lawlessness that has beset the city.'
'Chicago will not let our police officers become political pawns in a debate... Chicago will not let our residents have their fundamental rights isolated and violated. And Chicago will never relinquish our status as a welcoming city.' - Emanuel said.
Sessions fired back with his final statement:
'This administration will not simply give away grant dollars to city governments that proudly violate the rule of law and protect criminal aliens at the expense of public safety,' - AG Sessions concluded. 'So it’s this simple: Comply with the law or forego taxpayer dollars.'
