California judge blocks portion of Trump's sanctuary cities order

California judge blocks portion of Trump's sanctuary cities order | 25 April 2017 | A federal judge in California has temporarily blocked a portion of President Trump's executive order on sanctuary cities that was designed to pull federal funding from such jurisdictions. Philadelphia, like other cities commonly defined as "sanctuary cities," does not honor requests from federal immigration officials to hold undocumented immigrants in custody for nonviolent crimes. The city had braced for potential funding cuts when the order was signed in January, and officials said Tuesday they were "gratified" with the ruling by Judge William Orrick of U.S. District Court in San Francisco, but were still reviewing his order.
