News in Brief



She Should Have Seen it Coming...

A Woodland Hills psychic was arrested Saturday on accusations of grand theft. The 28-year-old self-proclaimed psychic, who had an office in her house on Topanga Canyon Blvd., was exposed by a private investigator. Bob Nigard worked with five known victims from San Diego to Los Angeles who accused the woman of stealing thousands of dollars. One victim, who found the psychic on Yelp, was told the psychic was doing “spiritual work” for her at night to cleanse the negativity around her, and in order to achieve happiness she had to make a temporary sacrifice of certain amount of money. The victim said “It was weird. She did know very specific things about me. How could I be so stupid? I went to college...” The signs on Topanga have been taken down now and the psychic was jailed following the investigation by Nigard.

Walnut Acres Eldercare Approved

The eldercare facility planned for 6221 Fallbrook Avenue in Woodland Hills, (at Erwin) was approved by the Zoning Administrator in a Letter of Determination issued January 11. The project from Community Multihousing Inc. is a onestory eldercare facility with 50 guest rooms in approximately 33,500 square feet. It is anticipated from emails and flyers distributed by the group “Preserve Walnut Acres” that an appeal to the South Valley Area Planning Commission regarding this decision will be forthcoming. The property was most recently a preschool, and had gone through the zoning process before opening to get that designation approved.

Assemblyman Matt Dababneh, far right, this week delivered over 450 suits to benefit “Suits for Soldiers.” The national campaign collects donated men’s and women’s suits for veterans transitioning back to the workforce. The campaign was founded by Farmers Insurance to help vets dress for success. “Initially the goal was to collect 45 suits from the residents in the 45th Assembly District, however, due to the incredible amount of support we were able to collect over 450,” said Dababneh. Shown at right with the Assemblyman are Steve Fazio and Nicole Kluft of Fazio Cleaners. “When Assemblyman Dababneh told us about the Suits for Soldiers program we were delighted to provide our cleaning services at no charge to help support veterans who have bravely served our country,” stated Fazio. The West Valley Warner Center Chamber was recognized by the Assemblyman for their help with the project

Chesler, right, whom we have profiled often in the paper as a frequent contributor to the “Chicken Soup” books, has just released her own book. A Man and His Books reminds book lovers of the beauty contained in a good, old-fashioned publication. Inspired by society’s increasing dependence on technology as well as her love for books, Chesler creates a story that generations of bibliophiles can enjoy together. The book tells the story of a library coming to life while its owner is away. Readers will be delighted as the library’s residents hold nothing back in a true battle of wits. The 26-page long, beautifully dedicated book is sure to woo romantics of all ages with its charming rythm. A Man and His Books is available at Amazon, Barnes&Noble.com and FriesenPress Bookstore.

UCLA Extension will open in April; online registration for courses begins February 6 at www.uclaextension.com/wh. The new campus offers 12 modular classrooms that can be adapted for various size groups. There will be a video conferencing system so “we can have instructors anywhere teaching our courses,” said Smutz. “We are using technology to give as many people access to education as we can.”

Battle Between Feds and Sanctuary Cities

By Stephen T. Holzer As we all have read, a multitude of local jurisdictions have announced that they are sanctuaries for people residing in the country illegally and have further announced that such jurisdictions will oppose any effort by the federal government to identify and deport such persons. There thus appears to be a potential confrontation on the horizon between the feds and such jurisdictions, as the new Administration has announced it is opposed to such sanctuary policies. So which position has the law on its side? As in many controversial political issues, the answer is not entirely clear. The key statute is 8 USC Section 1324 (“Bringing in and harboring certain aliens”). “The statute makes it a felony for anyone who, “knowing that a person is an alien, brings to or attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever such person at a place other than a designated port of entry or place other than as designated

by” the federal government. Section 1324 subsection (a). It could be argued that sanctuary cities do bring in or attempt to bring in to the United States persons not entitled to be here, because the offer of sanctuary is arguably enough to serve as an inducement for illegal entry. However, it is difficult to envision the Courts forming a consensus that this subsection should apply to sanctuary cities, because the fact that the cities want to protect such persons once here does not necessarily mean the cities have attempted to bring in or have brought the persons into the country in the first place. Subsection (b) makes it a felony for anyone who, “knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, transports, or moves or attempts to transport or move such alien within the United States by means of transportation or otherwise, in furtherance of such violation of law….” Arguably, any jurisdiction that facilitates

movement of people here illegally (e.g., public transportation to jobs) runs afoul of this subsection; but, again, it is not at all clear that the Courts would form a consensus going this far. Subsection (c) will probably emerge as the key weapon in any federal government effort criminally to punish any local jurisdiction that declares itself a sanctuary (or to punish officials in such jurisdiction who implement such a sanctuary policy). Subsection (c) makes it a felony for anyone who, “knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building (Continued to page 18)

“Learning is a lifelong activity,” Dean Wayne Smutz of UCLA Extension told Valley News Group. He should know he comes to UCLA after a long tenure at the OSHER Lifelong Learning Institute at Penn State. “With the changing nature of the economy, more jobs are going to be ‘new’” he continued. “Our job is to offer courses to help people advance in their careers.” Smutz is overseeing the opening of a new UCLA Extension Campus in Warner Center. Located at 21650 Oxnard Street, the location was specifically designed “because of traffic,” Smutz laughed. “L.A. traffic is horrible. People can’t always get to Westwood to take classes. So we brought the classes to the valley.” The demographics of the valley were an important factor as well. The average extension student is 25 to 35 and a young professional. Many of them already have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree. The wide range of courses, offered in the evenings to accommodate working professionals, includes academically-approved credential programs in engineering, technology, the arts, etc. They are designed to teach information to be directly applied at work, Smutz explained. There is even a course on craft beer, which he loves

Universal Celebrates Chinese New Year with Po and Tigress from “Kung Fu Panda”

The “Year of the Rooster” gets a wake-up call from DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda stars, Po and Tigress when they make their first-ever appearance during Universal Studios Hollywood’s annual Lunar New Year. The event is included in the price of theme park admission and will take place from Saturday, January 21 to Sunday, February 5. A highlight of the time-honored tradition will mark the return of the Mandarin-speaking Megatron who will engage guests in conversation characteristic of his persona as the leader of the Decepticon. Megatron– an ominous 12-foot-tall sentient robot – is one of the stars of Universal Studios’ award-winning thrill ride, “Transformers™: The Ride-3D.” Also joining the festivities will be theme park characters, Curious George and Woody Woodpecker, who will don festive Chinese attire. Lunar New Year comes to life within Universal Plaza, situated at the heart of the theme park where guests will be ushered into the polygon-shaped piazza, under a curtain of customary red Chinese lanterns and a stunning plum blossom arch. Inside they will encounter a dozen lampposts, each featuring banners of the twelve zodiac animal signs along with three symbolic attributes. A selection of Asian-inspired treats will also be available, including pastries decorated with the Chinese characters for “Rooster” and “Fortune.” More information is available at the website www.

Take a “Trip” to West Valley Playhouse

“Rogue One” The Force is With You

By Theda Kleinhans Reichman Three decades ago the compelling, enduring franchise known as “Star Wars” burst into our earthly realm from a galaxy far-far away, It began with episodes IV, V and VI which introduced us to Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), the oh, so handsome Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). They were terrorized by Darth Vader (voiced by James Earl Jones), helped by Obi Wan Kenobi and inspired by “The Force” which was always with them. Years later there were the prequels, Episodes I, II and III. This trio of films, however, was not as compelling. Then last year the eagerly awaited “The Force Awakens” arrived on screen. In that film Leia and Han are older, maybe wiser and we find out they have a son who may be leaning to the dark side. After all, his grandfather was Darth Vader. With “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” we bounce back

once again in time, a time just prior to the first film “A New Hope” (IV in the first trilogy to hit the big screen). If this sounds confusing, it won’t be for the true “Star Wars” fan. And even if you are seeing a “Star Wars” film for the first time, “Rogue One” will be exciting if you love sci -fi action and adventure. The film begins on an isolated planet where scientist Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen) is living with his wife and young daughter Jyn Erso. Their peaceful life is interrupted by the arrival of an Imperial leader (Ben Mendelson) who has come to take the acclaimed scientist and his family back to the Imperial Forces’ headquarters in order to build the Death Star. Prior to his capture Galen’s wife sent their little girl into hiding. Eventually she is found and raised by a rebel extremist (Forest Whitaker).

Minimally Invasive Sinus Surgery at Calwest

Marc Kerner, MD, FACS is the medical director of Calwest Head and Neck Surgical Institute in the San Fernando and Conejo Valleys. He is one of the first surgeons in the country to perform Balloon Sinuplasty, a technique to relieve sinus obstruction. Balloon Sinuplasty offers sinus sufferers a rapid, minimally invasive procedure for correction of chronic sinus blockage that does not improve with medical therapy. According to Dr. Kerner, “Balloon Sinuplasty technology extends the sinus surgery evolution by offering the surgeon additional tools for endoscopic surgery.” The catheter-based devices are designed to open the ostia to the sinuses in a minimally destructive manner. This results in clearing blocked sinuses, restoring normal sinus drainage and function, and preserving normal anatomy and mucosal tissue. The opening attained by the Balloon Sinuplasty system

Kerner is one of the first surgeons in the country to perform Balloon Sinuplasty, a technique to relieve sinus obstruction.

is durable and achieves the goals of sinus surgery. Postprocedure, the size of the dilated opening is approximately that of the nominal diameter of the selected Sinus Balloon Catheter (from 3mm to 7mm). According to Dr Kerner, “Balloon Sinuplasty offers us another technique to provide minimally invasive surgery for patients suffering from sinus blockages.” The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and allows patients a rapid recovery. The technology for this procedure was adopted from

Dr. Marc Kerner angioplasty in which small balloon catheters are threaded into either a blood vessel as in angioplasty, or into the small sinus openings, dilating them and preventing them from blockage that occurs with infections and allergy. The Balloon Sinuplasty devices are effective endoscopic tools and may be used with other medical therapies or endoscopic surgical techniques. In a patient, the Balloon Sinuplasty products can be used on several sinuses. Additionally, using these devices does not limit future treatment options for patients with progressive disease. Each patient suffering from sinusitis is different. Only after thorough examinations and discussions between the patient and Dr. Kerner can it be determined whether you may benefit from the Balloon Sinuplasty system. For more information on Dr Kerner and Balloon Sinuplasty, please visit www.calwestent.com or call (818) 349-0600.

Prevention is the Best Medicine By Raina Tsuda, DAOM, L.Ac., CMT Desiderius Erasmus’s quote, “Prevention is better than cure,” is just as applicable today as it was in the 15th Century. According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 50% of the American population has one or more chronic diseases. Much disease originates from alterable lifestyle factors such as: poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking and alcohol consumption. With our ever-increasing fastpaced lives, our expectations have shifted towards an instant cure in a pill and away from a healthy lifestyle for disease prevention and wellness. In Chinese Medicine, there are four key pillars to disease prevention: good nutrition, adequate sleep, exercise and relaxation.

Focus on eating a healthy, balanced diet full of fresh fruits, vegetables, lean protein, healthy fats and complex carbohydrates. According to the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation, having a healthy diet can save over 500,000 lives in the US each year. Focus on eating a healthy, balanced diet full of fresh fruits, vegetables, lean protein, healthy fats and complex carbohydrates. Eliminate processed foods and eat according to seasons by shopping at local farmers’ markets. Equally important to what you eat, is how you eat. Sitting and participation in non-distracted eating also encourages good digestion. Get adequate amounts of sleep and good quality sleep.

Valley News Group, January 19, 2017 Page 9

Healthy New Year

The National Sleep Foundation recommends 7-9 hours of sleep for adults. To improve sleep quality, focus on making your bedroom a peaceful space by eliminating all electronics and reading materials. Avoid stimulating foods at night such as spicy foods, alcohol and caffeine. Incorporate things such as chamomile tea, magnesium rich foods, and lavender essential oil to promote relaxation. Exercise in moderation for physical and mental wellbeing at any age. Exercise not only includes cardio, weight lifting and strength training; but also includes mind-body exercises such as tai chi, qigong, yoga and Pilates. These integrate breathing, proper posture and body awareness; all vital to a healthy body and injury prevention. Our bodies are continuously bombarded by stress from physical, emotional and environmental sources. Stress effects every part of our body. It is important to incorporate relaxation techniques that calm the mind and focus on staying present. These include meditation, tai chi or qigong. Meditation can benefit anxiety, depression, pain, immune function and inflammation. Wellness is an active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more successful existence (National Wellness Institute). Choose to strengthen your four pillars for a healthier you! Raina Tsuda is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, licensed acupuncturist, certified massage therapist and Pilates instructor.

Healthy Eating Workshop Set at Cancer Support Community

The Cancer Support Community will host a free “Healthy Eating Workshop and Cooking Demonstration” on Tuesday, January 31 at noon. The workshop and cooking demonstration will be led by Pam Braun, LMFT. She will share how her journey with cancer led to her extensive research on food and its relationship to cancer. Braun will focus on what experts now say we should and should not eat to help decrease the chances of cancer and its recurrence. Braun, a former chef and restaurant owner, was diagnosed in 2004 at the age of 52 with late-stage fallopian tube cancer. She was given a 15% chance of survival and a 75% chance of reoccurrence. Her fierce determination to do all she could through her cancer journey, in conjunction with traditional medical treatment, compelled her to begin researching the science of food and its relationship to cancer. Her research led to the development of The Ultimate Anti-Cancer Cookbook, endorsed by Dr Mary Hardy, bringing her combined passions for good food and healthful living together. The workshop will be held at the Cancer Support Community, 530 Hampshire Road in Westlake Village. Call (805) 379-4777 to RSVP. The Cancer Support Community Valley/Ventura/Santa Barbara is an independently governed and funded chapter serving 3,000 local residents affected by cancer each year with programs in English and Spanish, all offered free of charge.

Red Cross Sends Urgent Appeal

The American Red Cross has a severe winter blood shortage and is issuing an emergency call for blood and platelet donors to make a donation appointment now and help save patient lives. Hectic holiday schedules for many regular blood donors contributed to about 37,000 fewer donations in November and December than what was needed. Snowstorms and severe weather have also impacted donations. Nearly 100 blood drives were forced to cancel in December, resulting in more than 3,100 blood donations going uncollected. Schedule an appointment to donate by using the free Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Stress leads to insomnia, and poor sleep patterns induce yet more stress in a vicious circle of misery. We’re in the midst of a sleep-deficit crisis.

By Janey M. Rifkin Did you know your body actually goes into “healing mode” when you are getting quality sleep. Yes, indeed! The research is conclusive on the subject. First, getting a solid night’s sleep is an important component for maintaining good health. And second, it is during stressfree quality sleeping hours that the body restores its immune system, which is the catalyst for catching colds, seasonal flus, infectious diseases, even serious health crises, so detrimental to one’s state of health. Insufficient sleep has been linked to a number of serious health woes, including heart disease, diabetes, being overweight, problems with memory and fuzzy thinking as well as lower levels of testosterone in men. Too many people suffer from insomnia or poor, disturbed, and interrupted hours of sleep in today’s fastpaced, stress-filled world.

The Rebel forces need to acquire the plans for the Death Star, a massive weapon that could ensure the Empire’s dominance over the galaxy. He and Jyn are joined in their quest by a blind warrior who is intensely devoted to “The Force” (Donnie Yen, a Hong Kong action star). Even without sight he is a gifted martial arts warrior who is aided by his devoted bodyguard (Jian Wen) who always has his back and by a Rebel cargo pilot who is very important to the plot.

Slim Down Your New Year’s Resolutions

By Brad Mallie New Years has come and gone. Two weeks into the new year & your fitness resolutions have faded. Even with the best intentions something conveniently comes up on a daily basis to render your workouts nonexistent. Sound familiar? This is a pattern that many of us fall into every year. What’s the solution? Slim down your expectations. Many resolutions fail because they aren’t realistic. Start small and realize that in today’s time-crunched society something is always better than nothing. When it it comes to exercise the problem with many of us is that we don’t think outside the box of what is viewed as a “traditional workout paradigm.” We skim too many fitness magazines, we listen to too many “fitness experts” and we accept every fitness study as gospel. We take all of this so literally that if we don’t have time to achieve a certain amount of sets and reps

or reach a certain target zone we sabotage ourselves by saying we just don’t have the time. No gym? No problem! Luckily we live in a town where it’s sunny almost everyday! Get outside. A great start is accepting that something is better than nothing. Remember the basics: walking, running, push ups, sit-ups, squats, lunges, jumping rope, picnic table step ups, jumps and dips. Mix & match. Have an injury? Modify as needed. Pick what you can do and omit what you can’t. Bottom line: you can’t get results if you don’t try. No more excuses. Get outside and move!

Hypnosis for Happiness?

By Cher Bodner, C.H.t. New Years is a time when most people take on the dreaded task of improving themselves from the last year in some kind of way. “I resolve to be more productive at work, lose weight, change this bad habit of mine!” Then there are the few who focus on change more introspectively… ”I have a life or core value that seems to have changed and I want to improve upon that!” I believe a true New Year’s resolution should be about both the personal or “exterior” changes and the “interior” or moral changes. Inwardly or morally, one might resolve to be more patient with people, be more giving or even more trusting of the universe as a whole, but how many people do you know who just resolve to be happy? Doesn’t that sound strange? Make a resolution to be happy? So what does hypnosis have to do with happiness? Most people think of hypnosis as an alternative method to help one get over the fear of flying, to lose weight or to quit smokin Did you know that being hypnotized is one of the most effective treatments for hundreds of issues that everyday people face - like anxiety, fear, self confidence, procrastination or even just being a happier individual. Hypnosis can be defined as a heightened state of awareness coupled with a deep sense of physical relaxation. In this state,

the subconscious mind comes to the surface and this where a qualified hypnotherapist works to help you understand why you have this issue. Once this is established the therapist can help facilitate the change from the old unwanted behavior to the new desired positive behavior. Some people can’t figure out why they don’t feel happy. We all have some negative subconscious programming though we may not be aware of it. Understanding why you may not be as happy as you would like to be is a goal everyone should understand about themselves as happiness is really just another habit, or state of being. Think of being a happier person this year. Your behavior affects everyone around you and if changes need to be made, give hypnosis a try … it works! Cher Bodner can be reached at (818) 324-1082.

Max Izenberg, a senior herself, was tired of trying to find out about local social resources and decided to start a newsletter devoted entirely to her age group so that boomers and seniors would know at a glance just what was going on in their backyards! Suddenly65 is an exciting online, award-winning, always free newsletter for those over the age of 60 who want to know all about things to do, places to go, and perhaps people to meet from Burbank all the way to Thousand Oaks. The newsletter is an entertaining and informative resource for cultural activities, entertainment, educational and exercise venues, health information and tips, any scams that target seniors, even fun places to take the grandkids, and a wide variety of other information for the greater San Fernando Valley. There are also undiscovered products and services for that vital savvy senior market. The newspaper has received such raves from the community that it was voted “Favorite Boomer/Senior Newsletter” in 2013 and again this year by the Daily News Readers Choice Awards. Now in its third year, Izenberg has received such comments as: “I cannot believe all this info from just ONE newsletter!!! So many things to do. I have already passed on stuff to my mom!” “There’s certainly lots of fun events to choose from and I’ve already checked off several that I am interested in attending.” “WOW – I went to play Bingo one night, went to a lecture the next day, and found great dancing to a live orchestra on the weekend. Where do you find all this interesting information?” The always free newsletter is delivered every Thursday morning right into your inbox.Go to www.suddenly65.com today and add your email to their mailing list on the right hand side of the page.

Rantz and Ravez from Dennis Zine (Continued from page 4) from the Sheriff’s and LAPD, the people of Los Angeles deserve to have sufficient police officers available to protect their homes and businesses. A recent protest in San Pedro brought to light the fact that the jail in the harbor station has been closed and that crime is increasing in theose neighborhoods. From the San Fernando Valley to San Pedro and all parts in between deserve their fair share of police officers. Assigning transit operations to the LAPD will only reduce the number of LAPD officers patrolling the streets of Los Angeles. • • •

The City of Los Angeles can find MILLIONS of tax dollars to defend illegal aliens facing deportation by Homeland Security Immigration Officers, but needs to obtain a loan to pay bills due to lawsuits. It has been recently reported that the City of Los Angeles does not have the funds to pay pending lawsuits. While the City is now pleading poverty, they came up with $2 MILLION Dollars to help defend illegal aliens facing Immigration Enforcement with the L.A. Justice Fund. It is all about priorities. While I have always believed that the legal system is there to sort out the truth and that justice must prevail,

I can’t see how the taxpayers should be responsible to defend people facing federal immigration matters. While the City is posting $2 million the County of Los Angeles is posting $3 million. An additional $5 Million is coming from the private sector. • • • March 7 is another election day in Los Angeles Our Mayor Eric Garcetti is facing an election in March along with half the City Council and the City Attorney and Controller. As far as the contests for Mayor, it is smooth sailing for Garcetti who is facing light opposition and has over $2 Million to spend. Both Mike Feuer, the City Attorney, and Ron Galperin, the City Controller, are both running unopposed. The City Attorney has raised $682,091,42 and the Controller has raised $446,838.88. The City Council Races will be featured in my next article. Thank you to Ron Rinard for his email concerning my RantZ and RaveZ article that is “A Great Read.” Thank you to Jan Kanowitz for her comments and concern about the lack of a pedestrian safety zone in West Hills. I am working with Councilman Bob Blumenfield’s office to correct the situation. That is it for this edition of RantZ and RaveZ. You are welcome to contact me at [email protected]

Chris Lee’s poster will be featured in the MWD calendar.

Student Interpretations of “Water is Life” on Display at LVMWD

A dazzling array of student artworks interpreting the theme, “Water is Life” will be displayed at Las Virgenes Municipal Water District (LVMWD) Headquarters, 4232 Las Virgenes Road in Calabasas, from January 24-31 during regular business hours. Each year thousands of young artists create water conservation messages in a contest sponsored by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, of which LVMWD is a member agency. Free 2017 wall calendars featuring several of the artworks will also be available to visitors. This year’s edition includes local artist Chris Lee, a third grade student at Somac Elementary School, whose poster was chosen to represent LVMWD in the MWD calendar. LVMWD General Manager David W. Pedersen said, “These impressive artworks reflect how young people view the importance of water. The messages they share show their concern for protecting our water resources now, and for future generations. We invite the community to view their thought-provoking creations.”

(Continued from page 5) or any means of transportation….” Since sanctuary cities are not hiding the fact that they are protecting people illegally present who are within the jurisdiction’s borders, city officials could argue that they are not “harboring” such people in violation of the statute. The federal Ninth Circuit, however, has in one case rejected this argument. In United States v. Acosta (1976), 531 F. 2d 428, this Court stated, defendant’s “central contention is that the word “harbor” in [section] 1324… means to harbor so as to prevent detection by law enforcement agents and that, therefore, there was insufficient evidence to convict her. We disagree…. [Defendant] argues that the exclusion of employment from the definition of harboring in the statute implies that ‘harbor’ is used in the sense of concealment as part of a smuggling operation, or that if it is not, the exemption of employment is invidious. There may be something unfair about the exemption of employment from harboring-many of the aliens enter this country in search of jobs; the statute allows those who exploit their labor to escape punishment while penalizing persons who, in some instances, may be acting in a neighborly and humane fashion-but it is the kind of unfairness which it is for Congress, not courts, to cure.” However, in a subsequent opinion, United States v. You, (2004) 382 F. 3d 958, the Ninth Circuit approved a lower court’s jury instruction that, where a defendant is charged with the illegal harboring of a person not here legally, the jury must find that the defendant acted “for the purpose of avoiding [the illegals’] detection by immigration authorities.” Other cases around the country are split on whether “harbor” as used in the statute must include an element of concealment. It is not clear, therefore, that any effort by the federal government criminally to prosecute “sanctuary cities” or their officials will meet with success. Given the incendiary politics of the matter, moreover, it also is not clear that the feds would want to test the meaning in the statute of “harbor.” However, this conclusion hardly ends the leverage of the federal government over sanctuary cities. Many, if not all, of such cities rely on federal funds to carry out many functions, ranging from transportation to law enforcement. The Administration can as a discretionary matter likely cut off some or all of such funding, without Court approval. The above-discussed legal situation is why you hear mostly about such funding cutoffs and hear little about federal prosecution of sanctuary cities and their officials. Unless Congress amends the language of Section 1324 to make clear that to “harbor” an illegal violates the Section irrespective of whether the accused has also tried to conceal the illegal, expect the battle over sanctuary cities to remain mainly an issue of federal funding.
