On Tuesday, a federal judge in San Francisco temporarily blocked any attempt by the Trump administration and the attorney general to withhold funding from cities and towns that refuse to cooperate with the U.S. immigration officials.

U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued an injunction in two lawsuits, one from the city of San Francisco and the other by Santa Clara County, stating that this executive order targets communities that protect immigrants from deportation and could jeopardize hundreds of millions of dollars in funding for these two cities.Reina Bates Contact

This injunction states that “Federal funding that bears no meaningful relationship to immigration enforcement cannot be threatened merely because a jurisdiction chooses an immigration enforcement strategy of which the president disapproves.”
