Judge blocks Trump's sanctuary city order

Judge blocks Trump's sanctuary city order

"These constitutional violations are not limited to San Francisco or Santa Clara, but apply equally to all states and local jurisdictions", said Orrick, according to Bloomberg.

The two lawsuits were assigned to the San Francisco-based Orrick, who ruled that Trump has no authority to attach new conditions to federal spending. Since there is little federal law requiring jurisdictions to cooperate with federal law enforcement, the executive order only mentioned one small piece of USA law, which requires jurisdictions to tell the federal government about a person's citizenship status.

The president, in a January 25 executive order, pledged to withhold federal funding from sanctuary cities and sanctuary counties, leaving some-including Salinas-feeling cornered.

Just last week the City of Philadelphia received a letter from the U.S. Justice Department ordering them to verify that they are in compliance with a federal immigration law.

The news comes on the heels of the Department of Justice threatening on Friday to cut off funding to eight so-called "sanctuary cities," unless they were able to provide proof to the federal government that they weren't looking the other way when it came to undocumented immigrants.

The ruling is a blow to Trump's tough talk on undocumented immigration, as well as his stated intention to deport millions in the face of localities like San Francisco, Chicago and NY which have refused to direct their police departments to help out.

Some of the localities remain defiant, despite risking the loss of money that police agencies use to pay for everything from body cameras to bulletproof vests. Any doubt about the scope of the order, Orrick wrote, had been erased by public comments made by the president and the attorney general.

Santa Clara County receives about $1.7 billion in federal and federally dependent funds annually, about 35 percent of its total revenues.

In court, the government's lawyers suggested cities and towns were overreacting to the order since the federal officials have not yet defined what sanctuary cities are or moved to withhold any funding. Orrick said the language of the order sought to withhold funds beyond law enforcement, a broader sweep than allowed by law. And now a federal court ruling threatens to thwart it from carrying out that defunding threat at all. San Francisco and other sanctuary cities say turning local police into immigration officers erodes trust that is needed to get people to report crime. An existing federal law says local governments can not restrict law enforcement officials from sending information to the federal government about the citizenship status of any person.

Family members of the victims said they feel justice has finally come, but the agony of decades of appeals is very tough on them. He raped, strangled, and killed her, and beat her 11-year-old daughter, Lacey, during his robbery of her accounting office.

It was also reinvigorated in a 2012 ruling that states could not be required to expand Medicaid programs under threat of a loss of federal funds - the same coercive method employed in Trump's order, except there the threat was one mandated by Congress and signed into law, not a mere presidential order.

The judge rejected the administration's argument that the order applies only to a relatively small pot of money and said President Trump can not set new conditions on spending approved by Congress.

The Trump administration has defended the executive order as a way to keep unsafe criminals off the street and protect national security.

Constitutionally, the order can not place new conditions on federal funds, Orrick wrote.

"Because San Francisco stood firm, that's not going to happen here or anywhere else in the United States", the city attorney added. California's Santa Clara County followed. That one has since also been tied up in court.
