Federal Judge Blocks Trump's Attempt To Punish Sanctuary Cities Like Chicago

Rahm Emanuel

A judge for the US District Court for the Northern District of IL ruled [opinion, PDF] Friday that the Trump administration can not withhold grants to so-called "sanctuary cities", issuing a nationwide injunction. A federal judge in California temporarily blocked the Trump administration's efforts to withhold funding from cities that limit their cooperation with federal immigration enforcement in a ruling on April 25.

"The court finds that the city has established that it would suffer irreparable harm if a preliminary injunction is not entered", Leinenweber wrote according to Bloomberg. Leinenweber considered new restrictions placed on the grants in July.

The Associated Press also reports that the Department of Justice can not deny municipalities requests for federal grant money until the lawsuit has concluded.

Leinenweber said Chicago, which filed the lawsuit, had shown a "likelihood of success" in arguing that Sessions exceeded his authority with the new conditions.

Trump renews talk of 'bad dudes' opposing white supremacists
When interviewing Democrats who voted for Trump , Wallace said Tuesday , she heard: "It wasn't that we weren't ready for a woman". The resolution urges Trump to "use all available resources" to address the threats posed by white nationalist groups.

Along with San Bernardino, other sanctuary cities in the Southland include Santa Ana and Malibu.

The city of Chicago sued the Trump administration in August after it threatened to withhold funds from sanctuary cities, and refused to comply with the Justice Department's demand that it allow immigration agents access to local jails and notify agents when someone in the U.S.is about to be released from custody.

"So-called sanctuary policies make all of us less safe because they intentionally undermine our laws and protect illegal aliens who have committed crimes", Sessions said.

The ruling has the power to impact at least seven cities and counties, as well as the state of California, that have defied the Justice Departments' new rules.
