Federal judge temporarily halts Trump's war on sanctuary cities

Resistance Report - The Associated Press is reporting that Donald Trump’s plans to prevent federal funding to cities that protect immigrants, often called “sanctuary cities,” has been blocked by a federal judge.

The ruling comes from U.S. District Judge William Orrick out of San Francisco. It places a temporary block on the executive order while a lawsuit pertaining to its legality runs through the courts.

The initial executive order was signed by Trump back in January, and it’s not the first executive order made by Trump to have been blocked by a federal court. Two of Trump’s orders banning Muslims from entering the U.S. have similarly been struck down after failing to pass muster on being Constitutional.
