Council Speaker Mark-Viverito Urges Sanctuary Cities Like NYC to Be Trump's 'Worst Nightmare'

By Erin Durkin

City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito encouraged leaders of dozens of sanctuary cities to be President Trump’s “worst nightmare”  urging defiance just as Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the feds would move forward with an effort to crack down on the cities.

Reps from more than 30 cities around the country that limit their cooperation with immigration enforcement gathered in Manhattan Monday.

“I’m hoping we are going to become this administration’s worst nightmare,” Mark-Viverito told the group.
