DACA ex­ten­sion eyed

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - MORNING BRIEFING -

TULSA, Okla. — Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump will ex­tend a March 5 dead­line to end pro­tec­tions for young un­doc­u­mented im­mi­grants if Con­gress fails to act by then, said Sen. James Lank­ford, R-okla., who spoke di­rectly with the pres­i­dent about the is­sue.

Mean­while, the Jus­tice Depart­ment sin­gled out New Or­leans, New York City, Philadel­phia, and Cook County in Illi­nois on Thurs­day for hav­ing so-called “sanc­tu­ary poli­cies” that may vi­o­late a fed­eral law that says lo­cal gov­ern­ments can­not limit in­for­ma­tion shar­ing with U.S. im­mi­gra­tion of­fi­cials.

If the govern­ment finds the cities and county are vi­o­lat­ing the statute known as Sec­tion 1373, it could try to cut fed­eral funds for law en­force­ment.
