snap_edit and near_analysis do not seem to recognize the definition query

I am trying to move all my points to the appropriate lines if they have the same line number.  I am setting the definition query but when the code runs it does not recognize the definition queary and moves the point to any line that is closest.  The same thing is happening with the near analysis.  Any thoughts?

for count in range(0,x):
     for lyr in arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd):
        lyrname =
        if in ["Lines"]:
           lyr.definitionQuery = "line_id = '" + LineIDList[count] + "'"
        if in ["Points"]:
           lyr.definitionQuery = "line_id =  '" + LineIDList[count] + "'"
        arcpy.Snap_edit("Points", ["Lines", "EDGE", "1000"])
        arcpy.Near_analysis("Points", AllLines2)
        print "Processed " + str(count) + " of " + str(x) + ' line ' + LineIDList[count]
print arcpy.GetMessages(2)
