The US Department of Justice has designated several cities, namely – New York City, Portland, Seattle, Oregon and Washington as jurisdictions that allow “anarchy” in a move that will allow the federal government to restrict funding for the cities, according to a statement released on Monday.

“The US Department of Justice today identified the following three jurisdictions that have permitted violence and destruction of property to persist and have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities: New York City; Portland, Oregon; and Seattle, Washington,” the statement said.

In early September, US President Donald Trump issued a memorandum directing administration officials to review and consider cutting funding to cities unable to prevent the establishment of lawless zones.
