The Justice Department is threatening to cut off NY from a grant program named after an NYPD officer slain while protecting an immigrant because of New York's "sanctuary city" status - and knocking the city for being "soft on crime".
In a statement, the DOJ claimed that numerous jurisdictions are "crumbling under the weight of illegal immigration and violent crime".
Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik supports the accountability measures relating to defiance of federal immigration law sent to city officials by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "It is an outrageous statement and absurd on its face, and ignores a quarter century of progress in this city in bringing down crime", de Blasio said, adding that the city just marked its safest three months in history.
"I would say to President Trump and to Attorney General Sessions, if you believe this statement is accurate, come here to New York City, look our police officers in the eye and tell them you believe they are soft on crime".
The department said Friday in a statement NY "continues to see gang murder after gang murder, the predictable outcome of the city's "soft on crime" stance". "To say we're soft on crime is absolutely ludicrous". I locked up over 1,000 gang members in 2016.
"Maybe we should ask them if we're soft on crime", he said.
New York City has seen historically low crime rates in recent years.
The bitter back and forth came as DOJ officials are warned they'll withhold the money NY is entitled to from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program if city officials don't prove they're complying with the law. "Those policies, implemented by New York City's mayor and his administration, are directly responsible for a unsafe MS-13 gang member walking out of Rikers Island (jail complex) in February".
Malliotakis noted that this was not a reaction to President Trump's immigration policies but goes back to the Obama era, when the city only complied with 32 out of 584 requests to detain illegal immigrants convicted of a crime. Federal immigration authorities complained at the time, saying the teenager was a member of the violent MS-13 street gang.
