Mayor Rahm Emanuel called on President Donald Trump’s Justice Department Thursday to hand over grant money to Chicago, after a panel of federal judges said the funds can’t be withheld from so-called sanctuary cities. The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago upheld a nationwide injunction prohibiting Attorney General Jeff Sessions from requiring cities give immigration agents access to undocumented immigrants in their lock-ups in order to get certain public safety grants.
