AG Sessions announces that eligibility for Public Safety Partnership (PSP) funds -- for communities to use to combat drug trafficking and gang crime -- will be limited to those jurisdictions that provide immigration authorities with access to their jails and that notify DHS before releasing inmates wanted on immigration violations. DOJ is sending letters to Albuquerque NM, Baltimore MD, San Bernardino CA, and Stockton CA requesting information that would disqualify them for these funds.
