Major Win For Trump: Court Rules Federal Funding Can Be Withheld From Sanctuary Cities

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

What a winning, winning, winning, Wednesday with even more excellent news for public safety and the rule of law!

A federal court just ruled that the Trump administration can withhold millions of dollars in grants from states with sanctuary city laws.

Greetings and salutations to the sanctuary cities that sued the Trump administration for withholding funds — word is out that there’s “no more funding for you” per the federal appeals court in New York.

I have to admit — my household has been watching a few too many old Seinfeld episodes on Hulu lately, but this reminds me of one of my favorite episodes.

In honor of Bernie and all of the empty-shelf socialist bull over the past few weeks: “No More Soup For You” seems like a fitting response to all sanctuary cities that have neglected their law-abiding citizens while getting cozy, prioritizing illegal immigrants.

From Sara Carter: A federal appeals court in New York ruled Wednesday that the Trump administration has the right to withhold law enforcement grants to sanctuary cities.
The case involved seven states: New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Washington, Massachusetts, Virginia and Rhode Island.
All of those states sued the Trump administration for withholding over the Justice Department’s April, 2017 letters “requiring proof of compliance” with U.S. immigration law for funding.
“Many of these jurisdictions are also crumbling under the weight of illegal immigration and violent crime,” the Justice Department wrote in a press release.


From Fox News:  A federal appeals court on Wednesday handed a major win to the Trump administration in its fight against “sanctuary” jurisdictions, ruling that it can deny grant money to states that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in New York overturned a lower court ruling that stopped the administration’s 2017 move to withhold grant money from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program, which dispenses over $250 million a year to state and local criminal justice efforts.
You guys, SO MUCH has happened since 2017.

While the wheels of justice move slowly, it feels like the rule of law is starting to pick up the pace in an excellent way.

Just for kicks, I thought it would be fun to share this video from January 2017:

“We’ve come a long way, baby,” and winning never gets old. #Trump2020 #KAG
