Court Blocks Attempt to Withhold Funds from Sanctuary Cities

Court Blocks Attempt to Withhold Funds from Sanctuary Cities

Sacramento, CA

Last week, a federal judge in California issued a nation-wide block against any attempt by President Trump to withhold funds from sanctuary cities, which choose not to cooperate with the immigration officials. 

According to the court, Trump has absolutely no authority to attach such conditions to federal funds. Therefore, the court issued the preliminary injunction in two separate lawsuits, one brought by the City of San Francisco and the other by Santa Clara County. Both jurisdictions sought to push back against the president’s executive order that targeted communities who chose to protect its residents from deportation. 

In his ruling, the judge stated, “Federal funding that bears no meaningful relationship to immigration enforcement cannot be threatened merely because a jurisdiction chooses an immigration enforcement strategy of which the president disapproves.” 

The injunction should remain in place until the lawsuits work their way through the courts.
