The city of West Palm Beach reached a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice on how city employees, including police, will handle undocumented immigrants.
Earlier this year the DOJ threatened dozens of cities , including West Palm Beach, with subpoenas if it didn't cooperate with federal laws.
West Palm Beach recently sent a memo to its employees telling them to share that information.
Mayor Jeri Muoio spoke about an article that cited a White House official, saying the city only settled to avoid an unfavorable court ruling.
"I'm angry right now because I thought we had a mutual agreement to settle this and that we are working in a cooperative manor and this statement absolutely negates that, so I'm not happy," Muoi said at a Tuesday afternoon news conference.
The mayor went on to say the memo sent to city employees was simply a reiteration of current local law.
