De Blasio: NYC Will Resist Trump Plans

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said his city will resist the most controversial plans proposed by a Donald Trump administration. The city’s database, for example, containing the identity of undocumented immigrants living in the area will not be open to Trump without a “real fight,” de Blasio said Thursday. If necessary, the file, which contains information on more than 850,000 New Yorkers, could be entirely deleted. Currently, the personal data on those forms is encrypted and unavailable to federal law enforcement without permission. If President-elect Trump follows through on his campaign promises to deport undocumented immigrants, restrict abortion, and expand stop-and-frisk, de Blasio said the city will fight him. “We’re not going to take anything lying down. I think that’s the central point,” said de Blasio. “Anything we see as a threat to New Yorkers we’re going to confront.”
