Trump ERUPTS On Federal Judge’s Blocking The Denying of Federal Funds To Sanctuary Cities

A judge has once again blocked one of the President’s attempts at making the country safe. The federal judge blocked Trump’s directive calling to deny federal funding to “sanctuary cities” and similar localities that are aiding illegal immigrants; you can read the ruling here. This morning President Trump slammed the Judge:

Judge William Orrick pushed a preliminary injunction on Tuesday which obstructed federal officials across the nation. The injunction limits these officials from fulfilling the Jan. 25th executive order to its full capacity.

Politico reported the reason behind the judges barring stating:

“Orrick cited public comments from Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions in concluding that the order appeared intended to sweep more broadly than allowed by federal law. The judge, an Obama appointee, called “not legally plausible” the Justice Department’s arguments that Trump was simply trying to secure compliance with current law.”

Orrick suggests that the President stepped over the line with their comments:

“If there was doubt about the scope of the Order, the President, and Attorney General have erased it with their public comments. The Constitution vests the spending power in Congress, not the President, so the Order cannot constitutionally place new conditions on federal funds.”

Orrick does suggest that his injunction won’t actually block what Trump was trying to accomplish by his executive order. Trump’s desire was to cut off Justice Department grants to localities that are breaking the law, Orrick’s injunction cannot stop that. “This injunction does nothing more than implementing the effect of the Government’s flawed interpretation of the Order,” Orrick wrote.

What do you think about these constant attacks on President Trump’s executive orders? Do you think they are taking valuable time from the White House or do you think Trump needs to be held accountable for this? Let us know in the comments below!
