WASHINGTON, DC – In response to the Justice Department’s threat that “sanctuary cities” including New York will see cuts to law enforcement funds, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12) released the following statement.

“The Trump Justice Department’s threat to cut off $4.3 million in federal funding for New York City law enforcement agencies because we are a so-called ‘sanctuary city’ is as outrageous as it is moronic. Cutting off this funding for the nation’s largest city and number one terrorist target will only make it more difficult to keep people safe. New Yorkers will not be intimidated. We will stand for our values and fight this tooth and nail. We are a city of immigrants and proud of it.”
