NAT016 - (US-Sanctuary-Cities-Chicago) (NOT FOR ONLINE USE) CHICAGO. x-08s. U-S Attorney General Jeff Sessions has hit back hard at Chicago after the city filed a lawsuit that argues the Trump administration's bid to withhold public safety grants from so-called sanctuary cities is illegal. The city filed its lawsuit in Chicago federal court that defends cities that limit co-operation with enforcement of U-S immigration laws.
