Trump Gets Big Win Against Sanctuary Cities In Court

Nice to know that a court actually rules on Law rather than their personal political leanings now and then

Appeals court gives Trump a win in sanctuary city case

A federal appeals court gave President Donald Trump a rare legal win in his efforts to crack down on “sanctuary cities” Friday, upholding the Justice Department’s decision to give preferential treatment in awarding community policing grants to cities that cooperate with immigration authorities.

The 2-1 opinion overturned a nationwide injunction issued by a federal judge in Los Angeles. The court said awarding extra points in the application process to cities that cooperate was consistent with the goals of the grant program created by Congress.

“The Department is pleased that the Court recognized the lawful authority of the Administration to provide favorable treatment when awarding discretionary law-enforcement grants to jurisdictions that assist in enforcing federal immigration laws,” the Justice Department said in an emailed statement.

“This ruling reverses a lawless decision that enabled Sanctuary City policies, putting the safety and security of all Americans in harm’s way,” the White House said later Friday in an emailed statement. “We urge citizens across America to demand that Democrat leaders cease their support for Sanctuary policies that deprive Americans of life, limb, and liberty.”

If cities do not want to cooperate with federal law enforcement, if they do not want to enforce federal law, then why give them money? Let them get it by raising taxes on their own citizens and/or asking for money from the state.

    Oh my!

    Judge Kim Wardlaw, appointed by Democratic President Bill Clinton, dissented, calling the majority’s opinion “Orwellian” …

    Bwaha. Lolgf.

    Judge Wardlaw’s belief that a Constitutional and reasonable interpretation of law is “Orwellian” is in itself ORWELLIAN!

    Trump 2020 Make the courts Constitutional again!

    Nowhere is the effort to reform the federal bench more evident than in the 9th Circus.

    And the blame falls squarely on Zippy, who was too lazy to fill the vacancies. If Trump really does go on for another 10 or 14 years, instead of just 6, he could probably clean out the entire bench.

    Then listen to the Lefties scream for term limits.
