Toomey 'pleased' with Trump's executive order on sanctuary cities

Watch this CNN reporter shoot down Donald Trump’s voter fraud claims

The mayor did say the city cooperates in cases where crimes are committed by illegal immigrants.

The 6 p.m. meeting is a rare evening event meant to encourage citizen participation.

Trump on Wednesday also signed an executive order to jumpstart construction of a U.S. -Mexico border wall, one of his signature campaign promises.

Earlier, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said of Trump's executive order, "We're going to strip federal grant money from the sanctuary states and cities that harbor illegal immigrants".

City officials say the Republican president's order could yank over $150 million in law enforcement funding that's mainly for counterterrorism efforts, as well as protecting worldwide dignitaries and, arguably, safeguarding Trump Tower.

"To all of the residents I say: we can not be led on by these incitements to fear and anxiety", he said.

Under a section on "sanctuary jurisdictions", the executive order called for the Department of Homeland Security to put out weekly a "comprehensive list" of the crimes.

"If you look at the order that came out today, it talks about cities that are willfully ignoring federal law, and that's not what the city of St. Paul is doing", said St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman on Wednesday.

Federer-Nadal final would be biggest ever - Roddick
It is Nadal's first Grand Slam quarterfinal since the 2015 French Open , when his reign in Paris was ended by Novak Djokovic . At the very least 4.50 seems a big price about there not being one and 1.68 about under 1.5 tie breaks looks decent too.

Corporation Counsel Zachary Carter, a former U.S. Attorney, said the city believes there is U.S. Supreme Court precedent that "the federal government can't use the threat of withholding funds to coerce the states to conform with federal government issued policy". Such laws spell out when local law enforcement agencies will cooperate with federal authorities to arrest or detain undocumented immigrants.

"The stroke of a pen in Washington does not change the people of NYC or its values", he added, insisting that, "We're not going to allow our police officers to be used as immigration enforcement agents".

But even as he insisted that the executive order has weak legs, de Blasio offered his guess as to where funding could be cut, based on his office's perusing the order.

"It's a shame to see that the president is so against us", he said.

President Donald Trump's newly inked policies on immigration are causing uncertainty and unease in the state's Latino immigrant community. "We need to lift them up instead of tearing them down".

Barragan said while she was working with King County, she found federal funding that the county could lose.

"A lot of community members are anxious that all of a sudden they will be targets of deportation, they are anxious about not being able to trust law enforcement and sheriffs", Rodriquez said. Immigration experts say it makes sense for cities and counties to avoid immigration enforcement, which is complex and situational.

Other groups planning to rally against the orders in Detroit on Thursday include: Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Detroit Synod, Senegalese Community Organization, Michigan Immigrants' Rights Center, Washtenaw Interfaith Coalition for Immigrants Rights, Welcoming Michigan, Council on American Islamic Relations, Justice for our Neighbors, LA SED, ACLU of Michigan, Jewish Community Relations Council/AJC, Anti-Defamation League, and UAW.
