Donald Trump’s immigration policy suffers another setback as judge blocks immigration order on ‘sanctuary cities’

26 Apr

An American judge has blocked Donald Trump’s executive order seeking to withhold government funding from so-called sanctuary cities, in another legal blow to the administration’s immigration priorities.

In his ruling, Judge William H Orrick sided the Santa Clara county, the city of San Francisco and other jurisdictions, who argued that taking away this funding could be unconstitutional.

He ruled that the counties and cities that challenged the law had shown they could face “immediate irreparable harm” if the policy were allowed to be put into place, and that their constitutional challenge could succeed once the case is fully heard.
