Description

Federalism & Separation of Powers Practice Group Podcast On Friday, September 15 Judge Harry Leinenweber of the Northern District of Illinois granted a preliminary injunction against the federal government’s enforcement of a new Justice Department requirement tied to federal funding. The new Byrne Justice Assistant Grants require sanctuary cities that want federal funding to cooperate with federal immigration officials and notify them before illegal immigrants are going to be released from jail. Dr. John Eastman of Chapman University will join us to discuss the significance of the ruling and the future of the litigation. Featuring: Dr. John C. Eastman, Henry Salvatori Professor of Law & Community Service, Chapman University School of Law
