After issuing a dire threat to ‘sanctuary cities’ on Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is being challenged by mayors who will continue to fight for diversity.

While borrowing the White House podium from Press Secretary Spicer, Sessions warned that they would no longer federal Department of Justice grants which are worth billions and crucial to the operation of cities.

Mayors Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles and Rahm Emanuel of Chicago are among a number of politicians who have since spoken out against Sessions’ claims – calling them unconstitutional and damaging for some of the nation’s thriving cities.

Mayor Garcetti said on Monday: ‘Slashing funds for first-responders, for our port and airport, for counterterrorism, crime-fighting and community-building serves no one — not this city, not the federal government, not the American people.’

He added that the ‘sanctuary’ policies are intended to protect the city’s residents, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

He continued: ‘We will fight to protect the safety and dignity of all Angelenos, and we will work closely with our representatives in Congress to make sure that Los Angeles does not go without federal resources that help protect millions of people every day.’

Meanwhile, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel echoed his sentiments. He has previously spoken about the city’s intention to continue on as a ‘sanctuary city,’ the NBC Chicago reported.

While interviewing at the Nasdaq stock exchange in New York on Monday, he said he’d always seen Chicago as a welcoming place.

‘It welcomed my grandfather 100 years ago, we continue to welcome entrepreneurs, immigrants, and I would just say think of it this way: Half the new businesses in Chicago and the state of Illinois come from immigrants, nearly half,’ he said.
