Trump cannot punish sanctuary cities
http://abcnews.go.com/US/california-judg...d=47015568

Federal judge rules Trump cannot punish sanctuary cities by withholding funds.


Quote:A federal judge in San Francisco ruled today that President Donald Trump cannot punish so-called sanctuary cities by withholding federal funds.

Quote:Today's ruling grants a request for a preliminary injunction halting part of an executive order signed by Trump that involved stopping the flow of money to communities that do not cooperate with federal immigration authorities.


Quote:The judge called the order "an example of the President's use of the bully pulpit," saying he cannot threaten to withhold funds so broadly.
"And if there was doubt about the scope of the Order, the President and Attorney General have erased it with their public comments," Orrick wrote. "The President has called it 'a weapon' to use against jurisdictions that disagree with his preferred policies of immigration enforcement, and his press secretary has reiterated that the President intends to ensure that 'counties and other institutions that remain sanctuary cities don't get federal funding in compliance with the executive order.'"

Yeah but republicans are already screaming bias.

It's sad -- everything is so charged politically.

We're not moving together, but becoming further apart.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Good to see them making Trump's life difficult when he tries to pull his bullshit.

True, dat.

But - we can't let him evolve into the kind of strongman he admires. I don't want to live under Erdogan, or Putin, or an autocratic Trump.

The founding fathers structured our government in a way as to not allow that to happen. Nobody can be a dictator in the US.

Well thank gawd for that. Now if the newly stolen supreme court seat ends up overturning this decision then we'll know we are well and truly fucked.

Man got to sit and wonder 'why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.”

We've been seeing our constitution getting stepped too much already, and it's only getting worse. Never say never.
If the far right had their way we'd be in something like a theocratic, oligarchy, plutocracy.

That's what the Germans thought, too.
