Somerville's mayor is keeping score in sanctuary city battle with Trump

Similar to these rulings, it was the rhetoric that has surrounded the Trump administration that served as something of a "smoking gun" in Judge Orrick's decision.

"We'll see them in the Supreme Court", Trump said Wednesday in response to a question from a reporter while signing an executive order to look into rolling back the designation of some national monuments.

It wasn't the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals that ruled against the administration on "sanctuary cities".

Trump tweets don't help: 1st Twitter revenue drop since IPO
Twitter posted GAAP losses of 9 cents per share or $62 million, compared to last year's loss of 12 cents per share or $80 million. The company also introduced an update that makes it easier for users to follow conversations and replies in late March.

A single judge in San Francisco halted President Trump's executive order that would funds from cities that shield illegal immigrants. "The President has called it "a weapon" to use against jurisdictions that disagree with his preferred policies of immigration enforcement, and his press secretary has reiterated that the President intends to ensure that "counties and other institutions that remain sanctuary cites don't get federal government funding in compliance with the executive order'". That was the court that blocked the president's first travel ban, against seven Muslim countries. The order, Readler explained, would affect less than $1 million in funding for Santa Clara County and possibly no money for San Francisco.

Judge Orrick said his order did not block the government from putting conditions on federal grants or stop it from devising a definition of what a sanctuary jurisdiction is.

"Out of our very big country, with many choices, does everyone notice that both the "ban" case and now the "sanctuary" case is brought in the Ninth Circuit, which has a bad record of being overturned (close to 80%)".

Trump's tweets echo a White House statement released Tuesday night after Orrick's ruling. On Tuesday, April 25, 2017, a federal judge blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from co.

Judge William Orrick, who handed down the decision Tuesday, is based in San Francisco and is not on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Orrick noted that the Justice department's lawyers weakly argued the case, implicitly recognizing that Trump did not have autocratic powers over disbursing federal funds to cities which often heavily depend on them for their budgets. Local enforcement say the policy would discourage immigrants from reporting crime. "But we are confident we will ultimately prevail in the Supreme Court, just as we will prevail in our lawful efforts to impose immigration restrictions necessary to keep terrorists out of the United States". In the term that ended in 2015, 10 appellate circuits, including the one on which Gorsuch was serving, had reversal rates higher than the 9th Circuit.
