Group of Sanctuary Cities’ Mayors Boycott Planned Meeting with Trump

Mayors of Sanctuary Cities boycotted a meeting with President Donald Trump regarding infrastructure after the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Attorney General Jeff Sessions threatened to subpoena sanctuary cities with information regarding undocumented immigrants in their jurisdictions. Mayors from so-called sanctuary cities across the U.S. have been threatened by the DOJ before with federal funding assistance cuts due to their resistance in assisting federal authorities in enforcing immigration laws. Sanctuary cities, such as San Francisco, have been providing legal assistance and protection to undocumented immigrants and have even officially signified their unwillingness to help the federal government in conducting raids and arrests of undocumented immigrants.
