MILWAUKEE — The $9.7 million three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Justice appeared in jeopardy in recent weeks, after police discovered a conflict between an element of the grant related to immigration enforcement and an amended standard operating procedure that governs the police department.
In a response from DOJ Friday, the department was notified the city could still receive the grant without the immigration enforcement element.
