Testy Thursday

Mayor de Blasio pledging to defy Trump last week, ahead of the inauguration (Mayor’s Flickr).

Mayor Bill de Blasio convened an emergency press conference on Wednesday night to address President Donald Trump’s executive order threatening to strip federal funding from “sanctuary cities,” i.e. cities where local law enforcement and city agencies generally don’t cooperate with federal immigration authorities. He emphasized that the order is “vague” in its language, and that New York City is prepared to challenge it in court.

“We are immediately struck by how vague it is, and how subject to challenge it is,” de Blasio told reporters.

“The stroke of a pen in Washington does not change the people of NYC or its values,” he added, insisting that, “We’re not going to allow our police officers to be used as immigration enforcement agents. It’s as simple as that.”

    A letter to the editor in today’s TNYT shreds David Brooks’ op-ed from day before yesterday as mansplaing. Worthy, as was most of the editorial page today.
