DOJ Declares New York, Portland And Seattle ‘Anarchist Jurisdictions,’

First Step To Cutting Federal Funding

By Eric A. Blair


he Justice Department on Monday designated New York, Portland and Seattle “anarchist jurisdictions,” setting up a move to revoke federal funding.

DOJ said the cities “have permitted violence and destruction of property to persist and have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities.”

Earlier this month, President Trump ordered federal agencies to examine ways to cut federal funding in cities that have allowed violent riots to repeatedly occur. Trump’s order gave the director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 30 days to issue guidance to federal agencies on restricting eligibility for federal grants for the cities on the DOJ list.

New York City gets more than $7 billion from such grants in fiscal 2021 alone, about 7.5% of the city’s projected total revenue.
