"Chicago will not be blackmailed into changing our values, and we are and will remain a welcoming city", Emanuel said in a press release. Emanuel made it emphatically clear that he will not allow Sessions or other officials of the Trump Administration to violate citizens' "fundamental rights".
Chicago is among several jurisdictions already locked in a legal battle with the Trump administration over an executive order, largely blocked by a federal court, aimed at withholding federal funds from sanctuary cities.
Todd gets reaction from Robert Law, Government Relations Director for FAIR, the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
The DOJ was quick to slam the lawsuit, claiming that the city should focus more on reducing murder than protecting illegal immigrants.
On Sunday, when the city's announced its intention to file a lawsuit against the Justice Department, Mayor Emanuel called the Attorney General's threat to withhold grant money from sanctuary cities illegal and unconstitutional. It was just two days after Emanuel received widespread attention for telling a veteran news reporter he planned to sue the Justice Department.
"These new conditions also fly in the face of longstanding City policy that promotes cooperation between local law enforcement and immigrant communities", the lawsuit said.

Doklam standoff: Western media is 'biased' towards India, says Chinese newspaper
The crisis erupted after Indian and Bhutanese troops foiled an attempt by the Chinese Army to encroach on a disputed enclave. Amid the stand-off in Doklam, Chinese soldiers transgressed into the disputed territory along the global border with India.
Chicago argues the new conditions placed on the grant program "effectively federalize local detention facilities and violate the Fourth Amendment".
Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle praised the city's decision to sue the Trump administration in a statement issued shortly after Emanuel's announcement.
Chicago's lawsuit will contend that the USA government can not "commandeer local law enforcement to carry out federal immigration law functions", among other arguments, the city's top lawyer Ed Siskel said.
That could force the Police Department to hold men and women under investigation longer than the constitutionally mandated 48 hours, Siskel said.
This year, the Department of Justice announced that cities will be required to give federal agencies 48 hours' notice before releasing anyone suspected of being in the USA illegally, even if they have not been charged with a crime, and that immigration agents would have access to police stations and law enforcement facilities, "effectively federalizing all of the city's detention facilities", the lawsuit states. He also wants immigration agents to have access to local jails. He said the CPD is "here for you regardless of who you are or where you're from". Dozens of local governments and cities, including NY and San Francisco, are part of the sanctuary movement.
The city is planning on receiving $3.2 million this year in Byrne grants - primarily used to buy police vehicles, radios, SWAT equipment and Tasers - an amount equal to three-hundredths of 1 percent of the entire $9.8 billion city budget.
