From a press release:
“Attorney General Karl A. Racine today released the below statement in response to a letter from the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) threatening to cut off funding to the District over its policy concerning inquiries into immigration status. The DOJ grant program in question, the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grants program, funds important violence-prevention efforts in the District.
A copy of the DOJ letter is attached. DOJ Letter (PDF)
Attorney General Racine’s statement is as follows:
“Our utmost priority is ensuring the safety of all of our residents, regardless of their immigration status. DOJ’s threat to cut off funding for important public safety programs is counterproductive and wrong-headed. Our city is safer when all our residents trust local law enforcement. The District is in compliance with all federal laws. We will review DOJ’s letter and are prepared to defend our residents however necessary.”
Ed. Note: The Washington Post/AP reported: “A federal judge on Wednesday blocked the U.S. government from withholding a major grant that pays for public safety equipment because Philadelphia is a “sanctuary city.”

Thanks to Nick for sending last night:
“Wow, being projected onto the IRS building tonight.”
You can see some of Robin Bell’s previous projections here.
“This morning, President Trump became the first sitting president to address the ultra-conservative Values Voter Summit in DC.
But as attendees arrived, women from the abortion rights group Reproaction welcomed guests with a large banner that read: “Abortion: not just for your mistress” – a reference to Rep. Tim Murphy, who last week announced he will resign after details came to light of an affair in which the pro-life congressman urged his mistress to get an abortion.
In addition to the banner, Reproaction has a digital billboard with a similar message that will be driving by during the entire 3-day Summit.”

Now I don’t like to get too political… hahahaha
They’re going for $20 here.
District Taco is truly delicious. I am literally drooling after simply typing their name. So, so very good. I know what I’m having for lunch today. I’ll be grabbing a bite in Tenleytown at 4600 Wisconsin Ave, NW (photo above.) But you can find all their locations here. And if the lure of their deliciousness is not enough – do it simply to spite this jackwagon:
DC restaurant does not take cash -ATM and Credit Card only – must be shunned. PS the food is shit pic.twitter.com/1qPApwTEBs

We last spoke about District Taco back in early August when they donated a portion of sales to help “purchase school supplies for underprivileged children”.
Again, you can also find them in Dupont at 1919 M Street, NW; Eastern Market at
656 Pennsylvania Ave, SE; Metro Center at 1309 F Street, NW; and Virginia locations here.
“More flyers posted around our neighborhood this morning. I stand by my conviction to support all immigrants. Those of you that know me know that I believe in climate change. I am disappointed that my dead grandparents’ car was pulled into this situation.”
