California Judge Continues to Block Trump’s Sanctuary City Order

July 22, 2017

Sanctuary-for-all-Haven-DaleyAP-640x480U.S. District Judge William Orrick III in San Francisco issued a decision Thursday rejecting a request by the Department of Justice to reconsider his April decision to block President Donald Trump’s executive order threatening to cut funding from sanctuary cities.

After San Francisco and Santa Clara County sued earlier this year, Judge Orrick blocked the order on the grounds that it was too broad. He relied partly on “public comments” by the president and Attorney General Jeff Sessions in reaching that conclusion.

    Strange how this court had no problem when previous administrations used the “power of the purse” to force local and state governments to bow to their wills. When the Feds wanted the legal drinking age to be raised in all jurisdictions, Federal Highway funds threatened. Same is true with the National Speed limit. If states did not comply with the 55 mph limit, Federal Highway funds were to be with held. IN 2009, gold old Chuckie Schumer tried to with hold highway funding until states enacted Federal standard for motorcycle helmet laws. What is most notable about all these is that the USSC upheld the right of Congress to with hold funding. Their ruling stated that “…under the spending clause of the Constitution, the federal government could withhold highway funds, thereby exerting its control over the states.” (South Dakota vs Dole). I wonder if this judge ever heard of this ruling? If it applies there, it sure should apply here.

    Obama on occasion merely ignored court orders and went about his merry way. Why can’t Trump do the same with distributing funds? Surely there must be a way to, if not actually cancelling them, to merely “delay giving them to the sanctuary cities. Even this would throw them into a fiscal crisis.
