San Francisco Judge Blocks Trump’s Sanctuary City Executive Order

A liberal federal judge in San Francisco has just blocked Trump’s Executive Order intended to withhold funding from communities that fail to cooperate with U.S. immigration authorities.

The basis of the finding is that only Congress, not the president, has authority to attach new conditions to federal spending.

U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling moments ago after San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court.

I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts. — Ronald Reagan
