The state filed a lawsuit Monday challenging sanctuary city restrictions on public safety grants. At least seven cities and counties are also suing over funding threats, including Chicago, which filed a complaint last week.

The Trump administration has said it’s following through on promises to crack down on so-called sanctuary cities.

But the result for some has been growing confusion, budgeting headaches, worries about increased crime and more tension with immigrant residents.
