At 3:00 PM (ET) today, the Federalist Society will host a Teleforum with Dr. John Eastman of Chapman University to present a litigation update on sanctuary cities in the Northern District of Illinois.

Please visit the Teleforum event page to learn more on the subject. The call is open to all members of the Federalist Society and a recording will be uploaded afterwards as a podcast that is available for anyone to download and listen to.

The Teleforum description is as follows:

On Friday, September 15 Judge Harry Leinenweber of the Northern District of Illinois granted a preliminary injunction against the federal government’s enforcement of a new Justice Department requirement tied to federal funding. The new Byrne Justice Assistant Grants require sanctuary cities that want federal funding to cooperate with federal immigration officials and notify them before illegal immigrants are going to be released from jail. Dr. John Eastman of Chapman University will join us to discuss the significance of the ruling and the future of the litigation.
