Judge: Trump can’t block public safety money for sanctuary cities

SFGate Saturday, 16 September 2017 ()
President Trump’s effort to punish cities that don’t cooperate with the administration’s roundup of undocumented immigrants was dealt another blow Friday when a federal judge in Illinois said the U.S. Justice Department can’t withhold public safety funds to these communities. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber marks at least a tentative victory for so-called sanctuary cities, including San Francisco and several other places that have refused to assist with the federal government’s deportation push. In April, the cities won a similar verdict when a California judge ruled that much broader funding cuts to such communities was an overreach of power.
