A federal judge out of San Francisco has blocked President Trump’s executive order on sanctuary cities.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 25 (Reuters) – A U.S. judge on Tuesday blocked President Donald Trump’s executive order that sought to withhold federal funds from so-called sanctuary cities for immigrants.
The ruling from U.S. District Judge William Orrick III in San Francisco said Trump’s order targeted broad categories of federal funding for sanctuary governments and that plaintiffs challenging the order were likely to succeed in proving it unconstitutional.
Representatives for the U.S. Justice Department were not immediately available for comment. Source
