Yes, Judge Orrick made the right decision
People who agree with the judge’s ruling feel the president’s order was unconstitutional. They point out that there are checks and balances in the government and the president should not get to decide who gets funds approved by Congress. Basically, they claim that the executive order was akin to blackmailing cities into doing what he wants. As such, it was a huge overreach by the president and had to be struck down. Again, they point out that the president is trying to govern by executive order and that is not how things work in this country. They believe he has to learn that or he will spend the remainder of his term fighting losing legal battles.
It’s called checks and balances. Once it’s law, it’s a law. Congress will have to create a new law concerning funding sanctuary cities. NO President can just change a law, however warranted it is.

what a perfect call. Cutting funding for sanctuary cities is a violation of the constitutiton.

President has no authority to deny funds appropriated by Congress.

Trump is wasting all of this money and exhausting our legal system. Who is consulting him. This was clearly unconstitutional from the beginning.
Can we send Trump a bill.
