The Wall Street Journal: Trump’s executive order against sanctuary cities is unconstitutional, judge rules

A federal judge in San Francisco ruled Tuesday that President Donald Trump’s executive order threatening to pull funding from sanctuary jurisdictions is unconstitutional, siding with a challenge from two Northern California communities.

Sanctuary policies vary, but they all limit in some way cooperation with federal immigration enforcement.

In an order granting a request for a preliminary injunction by San Francisco and Santa Clara County, U.S. District Judge William Orrick said the jurisdictions successfully proved they are likely to face immediate, irreparable harm absent court action. He said the executive order threatens to “deprive the counties of hundreds of millions of dollars in federal grants that support core services” and creates budget uncertainty.
