Court rules Trump anti-sanctuary policy unconstitutional

(Worthy News) – A federal appeals court ruled President Trump’s executive order punishing sanctuary cities by withholding money is unconstitutional — but in a twist, the court cleared the way for the government to carry out the policy in much of the country.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Mr. Trump tried to steal Congress’s powers when his administration added new conditions to Justice Department grants by requiring cities and counties to cooperate with immigration authorities.

But the appeals court vacated Judge William H. Orrick’s nationwide injunction, saying he hadn’t proved there was a need to apply his ruling outside California. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
