Not fake news: Patriots give Trump SB LI ring
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com/AP) — Los Angeles is seeking to join a lawsuit by San Francisco over immigration restrictions placed on a major federal grant by the Trump administration. Los Angeles City Attorney Michael Feuer said in a court filing Tuesday that the conditions imposed on the public safety grant program run by the Department of Justice are unconstitutional. Feuer asked a federal judge to allow the city to join San Francisco’s suit, which raises similar objections. Under Special Order 40 established in 1979, the Los Angeles Police Department prohibits officers from initiating any police activity for the sole purpose of identifying someone’s immigration status. It also prevents city employees from assisting any federal agency when the primary purpose is federal civil immigration enforcement. Feuer and other city officials said the policy is critical to building trust and encouraging cooperation between residents and law enforcement. “We’re suing to block the Trump Administration from unconstitutionally imposing its will on our city,” Feuer said. “The administration would put L.A. to the untenable choice of risking a key public safety grant for making LAPD an arm of federal civil immigration policy.” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in July cities and states can only receive Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance grants if they allow federal immigration officials access to detention facilities. They must also provide advance notice when someone in the country illegally is about to be released. Seattle, Chicago and the state of California have also sued over the grant conditions.

How it all went wrong in the White House for Steve Bannon
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Local members of Congress reacted to news that Steve Bannon stepped down as the White House chief strategist Friday. Bannon took the reins of the Trump campaign a year ago. He quickly became the focus of controversy, portrayed as manipulating Donald Trump and pushing an agenda of “economic nationalism,” CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported. “If you think they’re going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken,” he said along the campaign trail. Bannon came from Breitbart.com, where the headlines cast him as a pillar of the “alt-right.” Now, with the president under fire in the aftermath of the violence in Charlottesville , Bannon is out. “Bannon is not the central problem in this administration. Mr. Trump is,” Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) said. Still, he welcomed the move and said he hopes it’s a sign that new Chief of Staff John Kelly is working steadily to fix problems at the White House. “He’s trying to bring some order to a situation that is order-less. So I wish him well,” Pascrell said. “I hope he can straighten it out.” Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) criticized Bannon Thursday on Twitter. How long can Trump Administration survive Bannon using race as political issue and undermining @POTUS and Cabinet on N Korea? — Rep. Pete King (@RepPeteKing) August 17, 2017 “He’s not going to have all of the backbiting, all of the leaking, all of the undermining that was going on when Steve Bannon was there,” King said. “And then it’s going to be up to the president. He will have a clear path with a united White House behind him.” A photo of Reince Priebus , Michael Flynn , Steve Bannon and Sean Spicer seemed ordinary in January. But now seems remarkable, since each has departed, Aiello reported. But with Bannon, did the president solve a problem or create one? Brietbart.com quickly posted a headline, reading. “Get Ready for Bannon the Barbarian.” On Tuesday, President Donald Trump said, “we’ll see what happens,” when asked about Bannon’s future. He also defended Bannon, saying he’s not a racist and complained the media treated him too harshly.

Local Democrats, Republicans Weigh In On Steve Bannon’s Departure
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) – All members of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities resigned Friday in protest over President Donald Trump’s response to the violence in Charlottesville. In an open letter to the president, the members wrote: “Reproach and censure in the strongest possible terms are necessary following your support of the hate groups and terrorists who killed and injured fellow Americans.” The letter was signed by all 17 members, including actor Kal Penn, theater director and playwright George C. Wolfe and painter Chuck Close; all were holdover appointees from President Barack Obama’s administration. Several were based out of Los Angeles. “Ignoring your hateful rhetoric would have made us complicit in your words and actions,” the letter read. The PCAH was created in 1982 as an advisory committee to the White House. It works closely with the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities and Institute of Museum and Library Services. The letter closes with the members writing: “Supremacy, discrimination, and vitriol are not American values. Your values are not American values. We must be better than this. If this is not clear to you, then we call on you to resign your office, too.” Dear @realDonaldTrump , attached is our letter of resignation from the President's Committee on the Arts & the Humanities @PCAH_gov pic.twitter.com/eQI2HBTgXs — Kal Penn (@kalpenn) August 18, 2017

Entire President’s Arts Committee Resigns In Protest Over Charlottesville
From Trump’s blame of “both sides” for Charlottesville violence to deadly terror attacks in Spain, take a look back at the week that was on “CBS This Morning.”
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A Democratic congressman from Tennessee says he plans to introduce articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump following his comments on the white supremacist rally in Virginia that turned violent. U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen of Memphis said Thursday that the Republican president’s statements about the clashes between white supremacists and counterprotesters last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, show he should be removed from office. Cohen, who is Jewish, said in a statement that “instead of unequivocally condemning hateful actions by neo-Nazis, white nationalists and Klansmen following a national tragedy, the President said ‘there were very fine people on both sides.’” In July, U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman, a California Democrat, filed an article of impeachment on accusations that Trump obstructed investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
