Judge: Trump administration can’t tie funding to immigration

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A U.S. judge in San Francisco has ordered the Trump administration to give California $28 million in law enforcement funding that was withheld in a fight over the state’s immigration policies.

In a ruling Friday, Judge William Orrick also declared unconstitutional an immigration law the administration has used to go after cities and states that limit cooperation with immigration officials.

The law forbids states and cities from blocking officials from reporting people’s immigration status to U.S. authorities.

Orrick is at least the third U.S. judge in recent months to declare the law unconstitutional.

His decision was significant because it applied to California, a major target of the administration’s crackdown on sanctuary jurisdictions.

The administration cited the immigration law in a lawsuit filed against California in March.

A U.S. Department of Justice spokesman declined comment.
