All three cities are blacklisted for refusing intervention by federal law enforcement units .

In the case of Seattle, it is mostly about the "autonomous zone" (the "Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone") established in a district of the city for several weeks and from which the police had withdrawn.

As for Portland, the Trump administration denounces the "chaos" born of daily demonstrations, on the sidelines of which degradations have taken place. The Ministry of Justice highlights "100 nights of vandalism, chaos and even murder" .

New York is criticized for not having pursued certain demonstrators arrested during the spring marches, as well as the increase in the number of shootings in the city in recent months, especially in July (+ 177% compared to July 2019). The City is also pinned for having cut in the budget of the NYPD (the New York Police Department).

This note specifically gives as an example four American cities including Washington D.C. and the three cities pinned Monday by the Department of Justice.

The Election That Could Break America

  The Election That Could Break America If the vote is close, Donald Trump could easily throw the election into chaos and subvert the result. Who will stop him?There is a cohort of close observers of our presidential elections, scholars and lawyers and political strategists, who find themselves in the uneasy position of intelligence analysts in the months before 9/11. As November 3 approaches, their screens are blinking red, alight with warnings that the political system does not know how to absorb. They see the obvious signs that we all see, but they also know subtle things that most of us do not. Something dangerous has hove into view, and the nation is lurching into its path.

Raising shields

"All this is deeply political and contrary to the Constitution", reacted the mayors of the three cities concerned, in a joint statement, accusing the Trump administration of "to flee its responsibilities and to blame its wrongs on d 'others to hide his shortcomings' .

In 2019, New York City received $ 8.4 billion in federal funding, or 9.1% of its budget. A considerable sum but which is not determined by the federal administration but by Congress.

We must therefore see in Monday evening's announcement a new attempt by the Trump administration and the White House to exacerbate the antagonisms between conservatives and progressives, and a political maneuver to weaken the Democratic camp before of the presidential election of November .
