Mayor Jenny A. Durkan and City Attorney Pete Holmes sent a strong response to the Department of Justice (DOJ) regarding their November letter threatening to withhold federal law enforcement aid. In addition, King County Council Chair Joe McDermot, King County Executive Dow Constantine and King County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg issued a response to DOJ.

"Seattle will not be bullied - we will protect our residents. We have both the law and justice on our side. The Department of Justice's interpretation is unconstitutional, and it couldn't be more clear that this is a last ditch effort by this President to impose his will on cities," said Mayor Durkan. "I am proud that our city will fight for DREAMers, immigrants and refugees, and these organizations will continue to assist DACA recipients."
