New Orleans Mayor, Mitch Landrieu, made a drastic move and informed the media he had no intentions of attending the combined meeting of city mayors at the White House. He explained that it all began when the Justice Department mailed letters to cities which offered illegals sanctuary, and threatened to issue subpoenas if they refused to cooperate.
Landrieu stated, “I cannot in good conscience as President of the United States Conference of Mayors go to a meeting under false pretenses to talk about infrastructure and have this letter issued today at 12:00. ”
“I don’t think that that would send the right message and as I said, an attack on one of our cities … is an attack on all of us, so I will not be attending the meeting.”
