Judge blocks part of Trump's sanctuary cities executive order

Immigrant-rights advocates protest near the U.S. -Mexico border wall over a visit to the border by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly in San Ysidro, a district of San Diego, California, April 21.

He adds that the ruling is "a gift to the criminal gang and cartel element in our country" and claims it puts "thousands of innocent lives at risk". Orrick does not sit on that court but his district is in the territory of the appeals court, which has ruled against one version of Trump's travel ban.

Trump tweeted that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which earlier ruled against his travel ban, has "a awful record of being overturned (close to 80 percent)".

The judge cited comments from Trump calling the order "a weapon" to use against jurisdictions that disagree with his immigration policies.

Although his criticism on Wednesday was focused on a court, Trump has repeatedly attacked sitting federal judges and decisions he does not like, unprecedented criticism for a sitting president toward the judiciary in modern times.

Orrick granted the injunction to block enforcement of Section 9 (a) of the executive order, the provision that would allow the federal government to withhold funding from sanctuary jurisdictions.

Now, the council has come up with another major decision of allowing students above 25 years of age to apply for NEET 2018 . However, Supreme Court had passed a judgment that students above 25 would be allowed to appear for this examination.

The judge noted the injunction does not affect the federal government's ability to enforce existing conditions for grants that require local jurisdictions not bar employees from reporting an individual's immigration status to federal authorities.

Kate Steinle was walking with her father in 2015 when Mexican native Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez picked up a loaded gun and fired it, killing her.

Trump tweeted: "First the Ninth Circuit rules against the ban & now it hits again on sanctuary cities-both ridiculous rulings".

Orrick wrote that the jurisdictions successfully showed they "are now suffering irreparable harm" because the order violates rights granted to states by the Constitution and because, even if the order hasn't been carried out, it has "caused budget uncertainty" simply by threatening to take away hundreds of millions in federal funds.

San Francisco Attorney Dennis Herrera applauded the court's order in sanctuary cities.

U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued his temporary ruling as a result of two lawsuits brought against the administration by the city of San Francisco and the county of Santa Clara.

On Tuesday, April 25, 2017, a federal judge blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with US immigration authorities, saying the president has no authority to attach new conditions to federal spending. Santa Clara County receives about $1.7 billion in federal and federally dependent funds annually, about 35 percent of its total revenues.

California's top prosecutor had some terse words for the Trump administration hours after a federal judge temporarily blocked the administration's attempt to financially penalize so-called sanctuary cities.

"If there was doubt about the scope of the Order, the President and Attorney General have erased it with their public comments", Orrick said.

The Department of Justice responded that the city and county's lawsuits were premature because decisions about withholding funds and what local governments qualified as sanctuary cities had yet to be made.

Santa Clara County, which includes the city of San Jose and several smaller Silicon Valley communities, sued in February, saying Trump's plan to withhold federal funds was unconstitutional.
