AG Jeff Sessions to bash Rahm Emanuel in sanctuary city speech

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks during a news conference Wednesday Aug. 16 2017 at Port Miami in Miami

"I recently read that Miami-Dade was one of the safest counties in America", said Sessions.

The Trump administration is escalating its attacks on Chicago's "political leadership", with Attorney General Jeff Sessions to slam the city's "sanctuary" status in a Miami speech on Wednesday, according to the Justice Department.

"Respect for the rule of law has broken down [in Chicago]", he says.

Sessions slammed other cities referred to as "sanctuary cities" because they are believed to shelter illegal immigrant.

Sessions said people who live in Miami-Dade County understand that "rule of law guarantees equality and opportunity".

Several resistance groups totaling about 30 people gathered in downtown Miami Wednesday afternoon to protest President Donald Trump's immigration policy.

He also stated if a warrant is obtained, " strip searches must be conducted in a private, sanitary and appropriate facility ". After a fruitless look inside the auto , the lawman summoned a female deputy and events spiraled out of control, Corley said.

But now that the 48-hour request is being honored, Sessions "feels that we are no longer a sanctuary city", said the mayor. Protesters aim to send the message that they are not on board with the Trump administration and their policies.

ILRC argues that local law enforcement jurisdictions do not have a "legal obligation to assist with civil immigration enforcement, which is the responsibility of the federal government".

Miami-Dade County has previously stopped holding undocumented immigrants in county jails after they had served their time because the federal government was not paying for the cost of housing them. In an August 4 letter to Mayor Carlos Gimenez, the Department of Justice said "there was no evidence" Miami-Dade was out of compliance with an immigration-related conditions on a $480,000 grant due to the county this year.

"I think what we represent is the community as a whole", said Florida Immigrant Coalition member Melissa Taveras, "which is really fighting for an important part, an intricate part, of our community, which is the immigrant community".

"That's intolerable, we're not gonna stand for it, the administration and the Attorney General have presented very anti-immigrant rhetoric", said Taveras. Local officials defended the decision, saying they wanted to keep receiving Justice Department grants for community policing.
