City Council Affirms NYC's Status as Sanctuary City, Trump Be Damned

Here are the sponsors of the City Council's resolution "affirming that despite president-elect Donald Trump's senseless threats, New York City will remain a Sanctuary City for immigrant residents." Brooklyn is well represented:

Melissa Mark-Viverito, Brad S. Lander, Carlos Menchaca, Ben Kallos, Laurie A. Cumbo, Antonio Reynoso, Stephen T. Levin, Jumaane D. Williams, Rafael L. Espinal, Jr., Helen K. Rosenthal, Julissa Ferreras-Copeland, Margaret S. Chin, Rory I. Lancman, Deborah L. Rose, I. Daneek Miller, Ydanis A. Rodriguez, Mark Levine, Mark Treyger, Daniel R. Garodnick, Rosie Mendez, Costa G. Constantinides, Peter A. Koo.

Trump has threatened to cut federal funding to Sanctuary Cities.  Cutting off all federal funds would have a “devastating impact” on the city’s budget, NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer warned.
