Emanuel Skips White House Meeting Over DOJ Letter

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel skipped a previously scheduled meeting with the White House on Wednesday after the Department of Justice threatened to subpoena local governments demanding proof that local law enforcement is working with federal immigration authorities. “If you drive a wedge between any immigrant community and the law enforcement; It is contrary to public safety,” Emanuel said at a press conference alongside the mayors of New York City and Los Angels, who snubbed the meeting due to the letter. “It’s contrary to the values of our nation, and it’s contrary to the ideals and the law that we establish.” (ABC)
