Feds Can Withhold Funds from Sanctuary State

Post by Professor Fate » Wed Mar 07, 2018 12:18 am

If you are a non-compliant jurisdiction in terms of cooperating with immigration enforcement and you take the White House to court, demanding that you receive your Justice Department grant money anyway, be careful what you wish for. Sure, if you shop around for the right judge you can probably get a ruling in your favor, at least until it reaches the Supreme Court. But if your claim is outrageous enough, you never know what might happen.

That seems to be the case with California this week. They went so far as to declare that the entire state was a sanctuary for criminal illegal aliens but demanded that Uncle Sam keep dishing out the grant money anyway. In a somewhat surprising turn of events, a district judge in Northern California (!) has ruled that the government doesn’t have to pony up the cash until the matter can be hashed out fully in court.

...Judge Orrick is not only a District Judge for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, but he’s an Obama appointee to boot.

Seems like only yesterday that Obama was destroying the country by appointing leftist judges who trampled on the Constitution by legislating from the bench...

Good thing "most of his legacy's gone".
Don't look at me, I just work here.
