Judge Rules TRUMP CAN Withhold Federal Funds From California



Attorney General Jeff Sessions has blamed “sanctuary city” policies for crime and gang violence. In July, Sessions announced that cities and states could only receive Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance grants if they allow federal immigration officials access to detention facilities and provide advance notice when someone in the country illegally is about to be released.

Cities and states were also required to certify that they complied with a particular federal immigration law. The Trump administration says that law requires that California not restrict officials from sharing information regarding immigration status with federal immigration officers, including information regarding a person’s date of release from state custody and home address.

The AP also noted that at least one ruling along this topic has already been handed down:

A federal judge in Chicago last year blocked the advance notice and access requirements in a ruling that applied nationwide. But U.S. District Judge Harry D. Leinenweber said the DOJ could require Byrne Memorial grant recipients to certify compliance with the federal immigration law at issue.

Still, this fight is at its earliest stages, for sure. But there is great logic to the Trump administration’s position, for sure. After all, why should the American people be forced to continue funding these anti-American, left-wing states that insist on breaking the law and giving criminal illegal aliens a free handout courtesy of OUR tax dollars?

Why should these liberal states be allowed to break our laws with abandon with no repercussions? Is there no rule of law left at all?

In a shocking move, U.S. District Judge William Orrick balked from ordering President Donald Trump to pay California $1 million in delayed law enforcement funding after Trump refused to make the payment because California is a supposed sanctuary state.

The Trump administration has put a halt to the payout to California because of its support for lawbreaking illegal aliens. But the state took Trump to court to force the feds to hand over the state’s scheduled payment for law enforcement expenditures.

Granted the administration has not said that the state will not ever get the payout, only that the money is delayed while the administration questions California’s policies.

Still, it was a mixed bag on the judge’s ruling. While Judge Orrick didn’t order the administration to immediately hand over the cash — as the state of California demanded — Orrick also didn’t agree to dismiss California’s lawsuit as the administration wanted him to do.

Orrick said the whole situation raised “weighty and novel constitutional issues,” according to the Associated Press.

California is the big test case for the Trump administration. The question is whether the federal government is required to return federal funds to states that buck U.S. immigration policy by creating sanctuary city or sanctuary state rules that prevent local police from cooperating with federal officials.

    Not my President…. I ,as a LIBERTARIAN not a LIBERAL, don’t care much about immigration. Yes, make sure that they pay taxes, but this was a country founded by immigration and as all of us descendants of an immigrant should make getting the Visa and green card much easier so these people aren’t afraid of coming into the country legally. But this is just a clever ruse story just like all other Trump news and is avoiding his direct involvement in the Florida shootings by overturning Obama’s law on the Second Amendment one week before this attack happened. As a pro gun voter I have to say we are all ignoring the second part or the intertwined part of the Second Amendment which is we as the American people have a right to say get this moron who wears a greasy rag on his head and only took this position for himself not for the American people and get him out of office immediately this man has been almost to the word in history of how Hitler dictated his Nazi party. Now this man has been in office for 2 years and has done absolutely nothing that he has said he was going to do to win the election which was his motive the entire time shame on anyone who supports this man shame on Donald Trump himself the world would be a much better place it’s him and his entire cabinet were six feet underground don’t tread on me or I will blow you away Donald Trump

      1. If you’re an American citizen then Donald Trump is indeed your President.

      2. We are a nation of legal immigrants and citizens who share the values of our country. We are not open borders and blindly welcoming to those whose values do not match our own.

      3. The rest of your post was so incomprehensibly stupid as to be beneath replying to.

    At least one federal judge understands the law, for a change, there are other judges that should be removed from the bench for their activist rulings.

    Strangle them financially and force them to obey the laws of the USA. Throw all illegals out of the USA. Cutoff all benefits and protections. Jail any and all that do not comply.
