Obama cuts off Phila law enforcement funding, host of DNC convention


Put this story down in the puzzle column. Add the second part of the headline, Justice Department sides with Republican Pat Toomey against ‘sanctuary city’ policy, who is up for re-election as PA Senator, and double the puzzle. Honestly, I have tuned out for the past week or so on the news business, so maybe someone else can help me out here. Pressure on Philadelphia just as the Dems march in to town? I posted earlier, that every square foot of public space has been spoken for as far as demonstrations are concerned. It’s 1968 again – a look back at the Democratic Convention covers the plan. The Administration could be changing its policy for real? Hmm. I am so cynical these days.

A new Justice Department policy announced last week bars sanctuary cities such as Philadelphia, the host of the Democratic National Convention, from receiving millions of dollars worth of federal law enforcement grants, putting further pressure on Pennsylvania Democrats to abandon policies that impede federal immigration officials.

The Justice Department notified cities last Thursday that they would no longer receive federal law enforcement grants, which totaled $3.4 billion in the past five years, if they have laws on the books that interfere with requests for immigration information from federal authorities.

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, who implemented the policy that bars cooperation between city law enforcement and federal immigration agents earlier this year, has resisted pressure from the Obama administration to back down on the issue. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson even traveled to Philadelphia to personally request that Kenney change course but was rejected.

    That is a strange one. Maybe it’s like Simply Linda stated and that the folks in Filthydelphia are leaning towards Trump. My advice to the cops, Go Home. Stay there. Don’t get involved. Let the buffalo chips fall where they may. Nothing like a little dose of cold reality to wake some people up. And as you said, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

    Huh? Wait a minute, but yet, you got San Fran. who is a sanctuary city and gets federal money and those I-dots won’t pass Kate’s Law…I hadn’t read this or even saw it on the news…I did read and see on the news that Cincy doesn’t have enough police protection to control the protestors for the RNC. I will have to ask the know it all—ie. hubby…he has been following the news this week, like you, I have tuned it out. I.AM. DISGUSTED.

        ok, so my husband said the only thing he can think of is that PA is leaning towards Trump…he doesn’t understand it either, as San Fran. is a sanctuary city and they get funding. He read the articles that you posted.

        Thanks..It seems to support Toomey which makes no sense. Open carry in Ohio and New Black Panthers say they are going to carry. Hang on its going to be a bumpy ride.
