Obama bundler and federal judge appointee William H Orrick III for the second time has permanently blocked the Trump admins order to cut federal funding to sanctuary cities. Orrick seems to think he can pick and choose what federal laws to enforce or not.
Orrick invokes the 10th Amendment in his decision ignoring the fact that when the federal law supersedes state law especially on issues of national security. Now if there was no federal immigration law in place, Orrick would have an argument, but that’s not the case here. He like most judges appointed by obama are out of control, trying to continue obama’s destructive legacy. Maybe Congress impeaching this rogue lawless judge might send the message that federal immigration laws must be followed and are not optional. Don’t hold your breath for this Congress to act against this rogue liberal progressive judge, they are impotent and incompetent to say the least.
FYI anyone going Orrick’s route is in fact aiding and abetting illegal aliens which is a crime! If we had a competent Attorney General with a set, they would go after this judge for breaking federal laws. Instead we have an AG who will probably recuse himself from this as he has on other issues.
Judge permanently blocks Trump sanctuary cities order
by Associated Press
A federal judge has permanently blocked President Donald Trump’s executive order to cut funding from cities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities.
U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick issued the ruling on Monday in lawsuits brought by two California counties, San Francisco and Santa Clara. Orrick said Trump cannot set new conditions on spending approved by Congress.
The judge had previously put a temporary hold on the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The Trump administration has appealed that decision to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
The Trump administration has also moved to withhold one particular law enforcement grant from sanctuary cities, prompting a new round of lawsuits.
