New Yorkers take to social media to mock the Justice Department's anarchy jurisdiction label

New Yorkers are weighing in on what they think it means to live in ananarchist jurisdictionafter the Department of Justice labeled Manhattan, Portland and Seattle as such in a new declaration.

Il Justice Department labeled the three cities come “anarchyjurisdictions on Monday on orders from President Trump to block federal funding intolawless zones.
It took no time at all before some people in New York were mocking the assertion on social media. Anarchist jurisdiction started trending on Twitter and users began to tell the world how they felt about the label.
Many posted about how much they love theiranarchist jurisdictionand their favorite things about it. Others simply posted what was outside their windows to show just how unruly their neighborhoods can be.
    Some took a cleverer approach and changed the lyrics to one of Taylor Swift’s songs “Benvenuto a New York” and replaced the city’s name in first line of the chorus with anarchist jurisdiction.

    Gov. Cuomo responds

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called the DOJ labeling an attempt to distort government agencies to play politics during a news conference. He compared the move to similar action taken a few years ago when the federal government threatened to remove funding for sanctuary cities.
    The governor said if the federal government once again threatens to block funding, the state will challenge it legally and Cuomo predicts the President will lose.
      The anarchy labels come after Trump released a memorandum earlier this month that highlighted New York City, Portland and Seattle, as cities where theirlocal and state governments have contributed to the violence and destructionfollowing the death of George Floyd on May 25 at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers and have refused toaccept offers of Federal law enforcement assistance.
      The list of jurisdictions will be updated periodically in consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security and the director of the Office of Management and Budget.
