Wibbitz - News
NYC, Seattle, Portland , Designated as 'Anarchist Jurisdictions' , by DOJ. The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced the designations on Monday. It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government, William Barr, U.S. Attorney General, via NBC News. According to the DOJ, these cities "have permitted violence and destruction of property to persist and have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities.". On Sep. 2, President Donald Trump issued guidelines that order a withholding of federal funding from cities that have been designated "anarchist jurisdictions." . We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance, William Barr, U.S. Attorney General, via NBC News. NYC stands to lose $7 billion in federal funding as a result of being designated an "anarchist jurisdiction.". NY Governor Andrew Cuomo stated that “if they actually do this, we will challenge it legally, and they will lose once again.". The president can’t supersede the law and say I’m going to make those funds basically discretionary funds, which is what he would have to do, Andrew Cuomo, Governor of NY, via NBC News
