A federal judge in San Francisco dealt the Trump administration another legal blow Tuesday, temporarily halting President Trump’s threat to withhold federal funding from cities and towns that refuse to cooperate with immigration authorities.
U.S. District Judge William H. Orrick imposed a nationwide injunction against Trump’s Jan. 25 executive order on so-called “sanctuary” jurisdictions and said lawsuits by the city of San Francisco and Santa Clara County challenging the order were likely to succeed.
Orrick pointed to discrepancies in the administration’s interpretation of the executive order, which authorized the attorney general to withhold grant money from jurisdictions that don’t cooperate with immigration officials on deportations and other enforcement actions.
In court, the government’s lawyers suggested cities and towns were overreacting to the order because federal officials have not yet defined sanctuary cities or moved to withhold funding from them. But on television and in news conferences, the judge pointed out, the president and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have threatened to sanction such jurisdictions.
“The result of this schizophrenic approach to the Order is that the Counties’ worst fears are not allayed and the Counties reasonably fear enforcement under the Order,” the judge wrote. “The threat of the Order and the uncertainty it is causing impermissibly interferes with the Counties’ ability to operate, to provide key services, to plan for the future, and to budget.”….
The judges orderdoes NOT stop the Fed’s from holding money from local governemnt ‘immigration related’ efforts….Share on Facebook
