Judge permanently blocks Trump’s order targeting sanctuary cities

President Donald Trump cannot block federal funding for so-called sanctuary cities that shield undocumented immigrants, a federal judge in San Francisco ruled Monday in a permanent and nationwide injunction. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick made permanent a temporary hold against Trump’s executive order targeting sanctuary cities, which he called unconstitutional. The president cannot set new conditions on funding already approved by Congress, the judge said. The case involved Santa Clara County, Calif., and the city and county of San Francisco, who jointly sued the Trump administration in February.
