CITY ATTORNEY MIKE FEUER FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST TRUMP ADMINISTRATION OVER PUBLIC SAFETY GRANTS

Updated: Mar 1

LOS ANGELES – City Attorney Mike Feuer today announced that his office has filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration seeking an injunction prohibiting President Trump’s Justice Department from again imposing potentially unconstitutional and unrelated conditions on the City in order to receive Federal funding for vital anti-gang programs. Similar conditions were recently placed under court injunction for 2017 Federal funds.

"Los Angeles again is standing up to the Trump Administration's attempt to hold federal public safety funding hostage. Again the ransom is the imposition of civil immigration enforcement conditions on LAPD, conditions which would make all L.A. streets less safe," said Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer. "Court after court has ruled this Trump Administration overreach is unconstitutional. We will fight to uphold the rule of law and protect our City."
