WASH­ING­TON — At­tor­ney Gen­eral Jeff Ses­sions moved Thurs­day to again pun­ish so­called sanc­tu­ary ci­ties, this time threat­en­ing to deny fed­eral crime­fight­ing re­sources to four ci­ties be­set by vi­o­lence if they don’t step up ef­forts to help de­tain and de­port peo­ple liv­ing in the coun­try il­le­gally.

The ci­ties — Bal­ti­more, Al­bu­querque, N.M., and Stock­ton and San Bernardino in Cal­i­for­nia — ex­pressed in­ter­est in the new Public Safety Part­ner­ship.

The depart­ment asked the four prospec­tive ci­ties’ po­lice de­part­ments to show proof of their com­pli­ance by Aug. 18.
