Attorney General Jeff Sessions yesterday said municipalities will need to "certify" they are cooperating with federal deportation policies or risk losing federal security funding. The goal, he told reporters, is for "monies that go to law enforcement, only go to cities who are participating in an effective, collegial, cooperative way with the federal government."
Our Gloria Pazmino and Colby Hamilton have detailed the ways local governments are trying to protect their residents, even as some court officers are being urged by their unions to cooperate "100 percent" with immigration enforcement actions inside court houses.
Ironically, New York City meets many parts of Session's definition, even if it won't "certify" it's support of President Trump's immigration policies. Crime figures from the New York Police Department show NYC is on pace for another record-low year of street crime (with drops in murder, rapes, robberies and gun violence). The NYPD also has an incredibly close working relationship with federal officials on the the Joint Terrorism Task Force, the U.S. Attorney's offices in the Southern and Eastern Districts, as well as with the Secret Service, which is helping to protect Trump Tower.

WHERE'S ANDREW? Behind closed doors in Albany, trying to close down the state budget.
WHERE'S BILL? In New York City, with no public events on his schedule.
PREET'S TWEETS: He started Monday with some overnight shade at Jared Kushner, who questioned the ability of government to perform, then happily noted his speech next week at Cooper Union will be webcast. In the evening, he talked about Turkish politics, saying it would be awkward for him to visit and questioning why Rex Tillerson won't meet with opposition leaders.

WHAT ALBANY IS READING:
- BUDGET TALKS PROGRESS, CUOMO RAISES EXTENDERS - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: Saying pending federal action in Washington has unsettled him, Gov. Andrew Cuomo raised the possibility of an "extender budget" that would simply continue New York's current fiscal plan until a new federal budget is in place. Cuomo, a Democrat, made the pronouncement during a phone interview on NY1 on Monday. He said there has been "good progress" in talks with legislative leaders - a point they've echoed - and that he is "very, very, very, very close" to a deal with legislators on raising the age of criminal responsibility from 16 to 18. It has been a sticking point. While Cuomo and other top lawmakers have said for months that they would wait and see what Washington had to offer, the governor now said this uncertainty is a "problem" that would argue against increasing spending. Roughly a third of New York's $150-plus billion budget comes from the federal government. ... It's difficult to perfectly understand the governor's position, which would be to effectively oppose spending hikes - such as new subsidies for public college tuition, say, or another $500 million worth of incentives for Western New York - that he's been arguing for himself. Read more here.
- "I'd rather raise my arms in victory than throw up my hands. I'm not conceding anything," Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, a Republican from Long Island, said after a leaders meeting when asked about the possibility of a "bare bones" budget. "I still think we have an excellent chance of getting the budget done on time."
- "That's up to the governor to figure out if it's bare bones, flesh and bones, no bones, extender - he has a new phrase every day," Sen. Kemp Hannon said.
- "I don't think everybody is in agreement on the definition of what a violent crime is,'' Sen. Patrick Gallivan told Tom Precious.
UPSTATE'S LAGGING JOB GROWTH - Investigative Post's Jim Heaney and Charlotte Keith: "Thanks in large part to New York City, the Empire State added jobs at a faster clip than most Northeast and Midwest states. For example, employment in neighboring Connecticut grew by 3.7 percent; in Pennsylvania by 4.5 percent; and in New Jersey by 6.8 percent. The jobs picture is gloomier upstate. Four of upstate's 12 largest metropolitan areas - Binghamton, Elmira, Watertown and Utica-Rome - actually lost jobs. Only two of the remaining metro areas - Albany and Ithaca - registered growth that approached the national average. Meanwhile, employment in the Buffalo and Rochester metropolitan regions, the two largest in upstate, grew by 4.7 and 4.3 percent, respectively, less than half the job growth nationally." Read more here.
- The Albany Times Union editorial board: "There are two ways to look at the upstate job growth that, despite upward of $8.6 billion a year in state and local government spending, has remained anemic: It could have been better, and it could have been worse."
- Chris Churchill: "No governor of a state with a shrinking population has ever been elected president. That's something Cuomo might want to consider as he plans his run for president. Why would the country want to be more like New York when so many New Yorkers are fleeing to other parts of the country? The state's recent population decline was slight - 1,900 people from mid-2015 to mid-2016, according to newly released census numbers. But we all know that real deterioration is happening across broad swaths of upstate New York, where the decline would be staggering if we hadn't grown so used to it." Read more here.
HAPPENING THIS WEEK -- Bloomberg Philanthropies is hosting its second annual What Works Cities Summit in New York City. More than 350 mayors, city leaders, and experts in city governance are gathering over the next two days to learn from each other and share best practices to enhance their use of data and evidence to improve their cities. The event will feature a keynote from former Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and remarks from mayors from Baltimore, Seattle, Albuquerque, Syracuse and Tulsa. More details
WHAT CITY HALL IS READING:
- HOMELESSNESS CRISIS: POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias and Brendan Cheney: City Councilman Stephen Levin, the chair of the General Welfare Committee, on Monday took to the dais to ask what a lot of people in New York City are wondering: why is the city's shelter population growing despite the fact that the city has expanded services, and is spending more than ever before? Levin asked whether the city was going to have to accept having 50,000 or more people in shelter as a new reality. Social Services Commissioner Steven Banks - who oversees the Human Resources Administration, which manages rental assistance and homeless prevention programs as well as the Department of Homeless Services, which manages the city's shelters - responded with what has become the administration's now standard line: it could be a lot worse.
Banks and de Blasio argue the city's shelter population would have been 70,000 right now were it not for the programs they have put in place. The city is aiming to reduce its homeless shelter population by 2,500 people over a period of five years under a new homelessness initiative de Blasio released last month. Banks noted that 34 percent of families in shelter have at least one person in the household working. Read more here.
- PLOTTING: Next steps for 'sanctuary cities': POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and dozens of legislators from around the country are dismissing the Trump administration's threat to cut millions of dollars in federal funding from sanctuary cities as an illegal maneuver to bully cities into enforcing immigration law, even as Attorney General Jeff Sessions aired that threat Monday from the White House. "This is nothing new in terms of the threats that the federal administration has been making, but it really is sad that the security of our city, the security of our country, would be put at stake to just meet a campaign promise to a dwindling base," Mark-Viverito told reporters gathered at Borough of Manhattan Community College for a conference on sanctuary city policy hosted by ThinkProgress. ... But Mark-Viverito insisted to reporters that leaders of sanctuary cities had a chance to show strength to Washington by coming together. "Not only is there power in our numbers and in union in our cities..." Read more here.
"Ex-NYPD cop who killed Ramarley Graham says teen's mom has 'every right to be mad'" - Daily News: "The cop who killed Ramarley Graham in the Bronx teen's home said Monday that his mother has "got every right to be mad" and that he wanted to talk with her - an offer she quickly rejected. A day after he resigned from the NYPD instead of being fired, Richard Haste, 35, told the Daily News that he wished he'd been able to talk to the family since the Feb. 2, 2012 shooting. But he said the NYPD's communications department, known as DCPI, had prevented him from speaking. "I've been wanting to talk to the family since day one. I've been restricted by DCPI. You want to speak, but you can't," Haste said outside of his Throgs Neck home. "She's got every right to be mad," he added, referring to Graham's mother, Constance Malcolm. "I felt like they deserved to hear what happened." But Malcolm wasn't interested. Haste had his opportunity to speak at a departmental trial regarding the shooting, she said. He was found guilty Friday of having "exercised poor tactical judgment leading up to the discharge of his firearm." Read more here.
HEALTH BEAT: Bringing the exam to the street - POLITICO New York's Dan Goldberg: There wasn't much of a description to go on. A black woman in her 50s with one dread down to her waist. She was supposed to have a shopping cart that contained her belongings. She was likely somewhere around Harlem Hospital. Bonnie Coover, a family nurse practitioner, and Ella Cantrell, a registered nurse, first checked the emergency room where homeless people sometimes congregate. Nothing. Nothing when they turned east toward 5th Avenue and checked the walk-in emergency room on 137th Street. Then, they turned back west. There, across the street, a woman who wasn't there before. She was wearing a puffy overcoat and workboots that covered red sweat pants. The long dread was partially covered by a red bandanna but it was definitely her.
From 20 yards away it was easy to see her legs were swollen. Congestive heart failure? Coover and Cantrell walked over and introduced themselves. They said they were with an organization called CUCS and they were there to help. Since July, the Center for Urban Community Services has been running a street medicine program funded with $400,000 from the city's Department of Homeless Services. It offers medical assessments and minimally invasive treatments to homeless people where they live - on the street, under an overpass, outside a McDonald's or inside a church. Read more here.
STILL TESTING THE SEASONING -- "The Four Seasons Reboot Won't Be Called The Landmark Rooms Anymore," by Eater's Ryan Sutton: "The long-awaited reboot of the landmark Four Seasons space will no longer be called The Landmark Rooms following a legal complaint by the chef of the unrelated Landmarc restaurants. Marc Murphy, the Chopped judge who runs Landmarc bistros in Tribeca and Manhattan's Time Warner Center, has settled his trademark dispute with the owners of soon-to-open Midtown power spot, located in the historic Seagram building. He argued, through his lawyers, that Landmark Rooms sounded "confusingly similar" to his own venues. The space, run by The Major Food Group (Carbone, Santina), will now have two separate names for the two discrete restaurants inside: The Grill, which refers to the venue's South room, and The Pool, which refers to the North room with its historic body of water... In the original complaint, Murphy's attorneys argued that "when pronounced, the words Landmark and Landmarc are phonetically identical, and, thus, legally identical for trademark likelihood of confusion purposes." The similar names could also cause confusions among those making phone reservations, the complaint stated." Read more here.
THE CORNER OF PENNSYLVANIA AND FIFTH AVENUES.:
- MANAFORT'S REAL ESTATE DEALS - WNYC's Charlie Herman: "Paul J. Manafort, the former Trump campaign manager facing multiple investigations for his political and financial ties to Russia, has engaged in a series of puzzling real estate deals in New York City over the past 11 years. Real estate and law enforcement experts say some of these transactions fit a pattern used in money laundering; together, they raise questions about Manafort's activities in the New York City property market while he also was consulting for business and political leaders in the former Soviet Union. Between 2006 and 2013, Manafort bought three homes in New York City, paying the full amount each time, so there was no mortgage. Then, between April 2015 and January 2017 - a time span that included his service with the Trump campaign - Manafort borrowed about $12 million against those three New York City homes: one in Trump Tower, one in Soho, and one in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. Manafort's New York City transactions follow a pattern: Using shell companies, he purchased the homes in all-cash deals, then transferred the properties into his own name for no money and then took out hefty mortgages against them, according to property records."

MORNING MEDIA, with POLITICO's Joe Pompeo:
- THE MERCERS AREN'T MAKING IT ANY EASIER FOR BREITBART TO GET PRESS CREDENTIALS: America has been getting to know the Mercer family (not least of all from this Jane Mayer epic in the March 27 issue of The New Yorker), whose billions helped bring Trump across the finish line in November. We recently learned, for instance, that the conservative Republican mega-donors happen to be part owners of Breitbart . Now, it appears their stake in the website is stymieing Breitbart's Capitol Hill access. A decision on whether to grant congressional press credentials to Breitbart journalists was delayed yesterday because, as Hadas Gold reports , members of the approving committee "were not satisfied with the information provided thus far regarding the right-wing website's connections to the White House and the Republican mega-donor family the Mercers. ... Of concern to the committee was the presence on the masthead of at least two people ...who are both also both part of the Mercer-funded Government Accountability Institute." Did we mention you should really read the Jane Mayer piece?
- NEWSPAPER WAR DU JOUR: It's not NYT v. WaPo, or even Daily News v. New York Post. But for residents of journalist haven Montclair, N.J. -- as Morning Media can attest first-hand -- it's nonetheless a hot topic for cocktail parties and Facebook posts. And it was only a matter of time before The New York Times got a piece of the action: "New Newspaper Prompts War of Weeklies in New Jersey Suburb ." Rick Rojas reports: "Earlier this month, the new [Montclair Local] arrived for the first time in mailboxes around town. A local family decided to pour hundreds of thousands of dollars into starting a news organization from scratch, hiring reporters to cover zoning board meetings and high-school wrestling tournaments and whatever else residents in this New Jersey suburb care about. ... The debut has touched off a modern version of an old-fashioned newspaper war, with a fledgling independent newcomer pitting itself against a community staple [The Montclair Times], printed since 1877, that has had cuts in coverage and staffing after it was bought by a major publishing company [Gannett]."
- THE PRO-TRUMP MEDIA MINEFIELD: A couple weeks ago, New York Times public editor Liz Spayd appeared to get taken by Mike Cernovich and other alt-right rabble-rousers , whose pitchforks were out for Times culture writer Sopan Deb. On "60 Minutes" this past Sunday, it seemed as if Cernovich outfoxed Scott Pelley in an exchange pertaining to the conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton's health: "Cernovich: How do you know? Who told you that? Pelley: Well, the campaign told us that." (See the irony, here?) BuzzFeed's Charlie Warzel analyzed the two instances and came to a conclusion about what they represent : "a warning to newsrooms and reporters who find themselves dipping their toes into the MAGA media fever swamp to take the other side seriously and to understand the legitimacy that personalities like Cernovich carry with their vocal followers. Put another way: Know your enemy and stop giving them ammunition."

REAL ESTATE, with POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg:
- "Delays could cost World Trade Center arts center fed funds," by Crain's Daniel Geiger: "A performing arts center intended to be a centerpiece of free expression at the heart of Ground Zero could face a $100 million shortfall if federal officials claw back unspent funds that the city received in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. That possibility worries officials at the joint state and city agency charged with redeveloping lower Manhattan after 9/11. The money, totaling $150 million, is a portion of what remains from nearly $3 billion in grants given by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to the Lower Manhattan Development Corp."

-"Silvershore looks to sell half of its NYC real estate holdings," by The Real Deal's Mark Maurer: "Silvershore Properties is looking to part ways with roughly half of its New York City holdings. The NoMad-based landlord is asking north of $200 million for 44 Brooklyn rental buildings, one of the more sizable multifamily portfolios to hit the market in recent memory, sources told The Real Deal . Silvershore, led by David Shorenstein and Jason Silverstein, owns nearly 100 apartment buildings across the city, worth about $400 million in total, according to Silverstein. The firm's holdings are largely low-rise, rent-stabilized properties in Brooklyn, though it also owns properties in Manhattan and Queens. The 44 Brooklyn buildings for sale contain 398 rental apartments and 28 retail units, and span 392,475 square feet." Read the story here
- Mayor Bill de Blasio's push for a "mansion tax" to fund senior housing led to sniping between the mayor and Cuomo, whose support is necessary and elusive. During an interview on NY1 Monday evening, Cuomo told anchor Errol Louis, "It never went anywhere in January and it hasn't gone anywhere since." His remarks coincided with de Blasio's latest tele-town hall, where he spoke in favor of the tax increase with State Sen. Diane Savino and Assemblyman Steve Cymbrowitz. Asked by one caller who is trying to stop the proposal, de Blasio referenced "wealthy and powerful interests" and mentioned State Senate Republicans, who control the conference and are loathe to support a real estate tax hike from a liberal New York City mayor. "The wealthy, I assure you, are not paying their fare share of taxes," he told one caller. During his own appearance on NY1 several hours later, de Blasio said of Cuomo, "the governor has been reticent to tax the wealthy at times." Without Cuomo's backing, the proposal is all but dead.

** A message from the New York State Association of REALTORS®: Homeownership rates remain at historic lows, while increasing costs make achieving the dream of owning a home more difficult than ever for many New Yorkers.
The NY First Home Program, S.4058-Litte/A.5616-Ramos, modeled after the State's 529 College Savings Program, has bi-partisan support and passed the State Senate unanimously last year. This savings program would help New Yorkers address several housing challenges including affordability and high closing costs.
That's why 84% of New Yorkers (Siena College Research) overwhelmingly support creating incentives such as NY First Home to help people save for their first home.
If the legislation passes, New Yorkers could save up to $5,000 ($10,000 for couples) of after-tax dollars annually in a special savings account to go toward a first home purchase.
We urge state lawmakers to support S.4058-Litte/A.5616-Ramos and ask them to incorporate it into the 2017-18 New York State Budget.
