Clark County is currently on the hot seat with the U.S. Department of Justice, as they question the status of some cities and whether they follow the law on sharing the immigration status of residents.
Clark County and Las Vegas government officials have repeatedly said Las Vegas and Clark County are NOT sanctuary cities. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the department is reviewing responses from 10 jurisdictions that are facing the loss of some federal grant money if they can’t prove they cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
The cities include New York, Chicago, New Orleans and Philadelphia, where Sessions canceled a speaking appearance that was set for today. California and Connecticut are on the list, along with Miami-Dade County in Florida, Cook County in Illinois and Milwaukee County in Wisconsin.
