California judge blocks Trump litigation to cut off funding to sanctuary cities

President Trump on Tuesday moved forward litigation in an attempt to withhold funding from “sanctuary cities” across the U.S., an action that was blocked by a California judge.
William H. Orrick of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California implemented a temporary injunction against the action, encouraging the White House to stop its attempts in cutting off aid to these cities.
San Francisco and Santa Clara County “have a strong interest in avoiding unconstitutional federal enforcement and the significant budget uncertainty that has resulted from the Order’s broad and threatening language,” the judge wrote with reference to Trump’s January travel ban, which was also blocked.
Judge Orrick’s action, however, doesn’t prevent the government from designating certain cities as falling under the “sanctuary” status. It also does not prevent certain federal aid restrictions from being implemented that were already in place.
