The Capital City is in hot water with the U.S. Justice Department over federal immigration laws. Jackson received a letter demanding compliance, accusing them of immigration rule violations.

It is one of 29 jurisdictions being given just over two weeks to comply with immigration rules.

Thursday the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance held a news conference responding to the Justice Department demands.

Not only is it an overt attack on immigrants but it is a covert attack on the City of Jackson, said MIRA Executive Director Bill Chandler.

The immigrants and refugees protection agency head said the Jackson ordinance crafted by the organization and adopted by the city in 2010 is not a Sanctuary City ordinance.
