Trump Listens To Fraternal Order Of Police: White House Daily Schedule For March 28

Lawyer says Trump administration moved to squelch testimony

President Trump could put public safety at risk if he intends to cut federal grants to so-called "sanctuary cities", leaders of the largest police union in the country are warning.

Sanctuary cities, such as San Francisco and NY, refuse to cooperate sometimes by not notifying Department of Homeland Security agents when illegal immigrants are being released from incarceration.

"I'm Chuck Canterbury, the national president (of the) Fraternal Order of Police from SC".

Dozens of local governments and cities have joined a "sanctuary" movement aimed at protecting immigrants.

The Justice Department may not allow sanctuary cities to use grants from its Office of Justice Programs and Community Oriented Policing Services, which give money to local and state police departments.

Along with Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions attended the meeting, along with 10 law enforcement officials, according to the website.

Butler, a two-time Super Bowl victor and second-team All-Pro last season, is considered one of the top cornerbacks in the league. I think part of the report that insinuated that this was moving in that direction, that's false .

Pasco said he met with Sessions last month and told him the union would oppose any move to restrict federal funding for police.

Trump signed an executive order on January 25 seeking to crackdown on sanctuary cities.

While Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel sticks to his guns on sanctuary status for Chicago, the FOP's national president said Tuesday he's confident the administration won't withhold funds to help law enforcement efforts in Chicago.

The White House is following up its longshot roster of budget cuts with a wish list of $18 billion in reductions, including cuts to medical research, infrastructure and community development grants. Angelo said the consent decree was not discussed during the meeting, but other issues were including standards for hiring and retaining officers, and reporting requirements that the union said has led to a decline in traffic stops.

At the Justice Department, spokesman Ian D. Prior declined to comment Monday on reports that Sessions may take part in Tuesday's listening session.
