Emanuel acknowledged that the Byrne Grant - which the city has used to purchased police vehicles, radios and stun guns - amounts for a tiny fraction of the city's $8.2 billion 2017 budget.
Chicago Corporation Counsel Ed Siskel said cities would have to give the feds 48 hours' advance notice of an arrestee's release, "which, in many cases, would require detaining individual residents longer than necessary for the sole objective of providing that 48-hour advance notice - in violation of their Fourth Amendment rights".

Emanuel said U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions' plan to withhold some federal grants from local police in so-called sanctuary cities violated the Constitution, stymied police anti-crime efforts and threatened the city's long history as a place where immigrants have prospered.
In Chicago, $3.6 billion in federal funds are at stake, possibly jeopardizing money to pay for everything from feeding low-income pregnant women to repairing roads and bridges, according to a recent analysis by the Better Government Association, a nonpartisan state watchdog group.
