Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel sued the Trump administration on Monday, protesting its immigration clampdown. Last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the Justice Department would begin suppressing so-called sanctuary cities, revoking Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grants from mayors who refuse to enforce immigration laws. Sessions said U.S. cities stand to lose millions unless they give federal immigration officials unlimited access to local jails and give them 48 hours notice before releasing undocumented immigrants.
