Cities:Grants Shouldnt Be Connected To Immigration

(Providence, RI)  --  A new lawsuit is being filed by the cities of Providence and Central Falls against U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions over the immigration policies of the Trump administration.  The complaint, filed on Thursday, alleges the Department of Justice is requiring federal criminal justice grant recipients to cooperate with immigration enforcement agents, and argues the conditions being set are unconstitutional.  The complaint is separate from the one filed by Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Kilmartin and other attorneys general against the DOJ and Sessions last week.  City officials say Friday is the deadline for them to accept the federal funds with the new conditions.
