  • Lawrence and Chelsea fight Trump: A blueprint for other sanctuary cities?

    WGBH - 04/04/2017

    Lawrence and the city of Chelsea are trying to block President Trump’s executive order and have filed a lawsuit that argues they are not violating any federal immigration laws with their policing policies. It also calls the executive order unconstitutional.

    Rachel Rosenbloom, an immigration law professor at Northeastern University agrees.

    “So the question is, does the federal government have the right to withhold funds from sanctuary cities. Can the president cut off funds without Congress?”, she explains. “I think that the answer to that is no,” Rosenbloom says.
