The city of Chicago has sued the US Department of Justice again for withholding public safety grants for the "sanctuary city's" refusal to cooperate with the Trump administration's immigration enforcement policies.
The lawsuit filed Friday in federal court says the administration hasn't released the 2017 grants worth millions and that Chicago hasn't, unlike other cities, received a key 2018 grant letter.
The lawsuit says new grant conditions this year include that Chicago not harbour immigrants without immigration papers.
Judges largely sided with Chicago in a similar 2017 lawsuit that also argues the grant conditions are unconstitutional. The Justice Department continues to appeal those rulings.
