The City of Los Angeles has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice, which announced last month its intention to withhold law enforcement funding from so-called “sanctuary” cities.  

Los Angeles is the latest city to argue that the Justice Department’s move is unconstitutional, on the heels of a similar suit filed by Chicago in early August. Last week, California also filed a similar suit.

Larry will also check in with L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer on his office’s stance on issuing permits to white nationalist groups wanting to protest in the city. In a recent  interview with the LA Times, Feuer said he’s considering urging city officials to impose restrictions or flatout deny such permits to hate groups.

Mike Feuer, City Attorney of Los Angeles
