The New York Police Department will not attend President TrumpDonald TrumpTexas announces election audit in four counties after Trump demand Schumer sets Monday showdown on debt ceiling-government funding bill Pennsylvania AG sues to block GOP subpoenas in election probe MORE's major law enforcement and immigration policy speech in Long Island, N.Y. on Friday, where he plans to lay out the administration's plan to defeat the MS-13 gang.
“We have a lot to do, a lot of work to do in New York City,” said Police Commissioner James O’Neill on Friday.
The commissioner's jurisdiction of New York does not extend to all of Long Island, where the meeting on gang violence is taking place. It is not clear if the NYPD would have been expected to attend the event.
New York is a sanctuary city, and Trump's speech is expected to take a hard line on the link between immigration enforcement and the rise of gang-related crime.
Trump will speak at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood, where the county's police are centered and near where the street gang killed another four men in April.
