Court ruling stops President Trump from withholding funds from sanctuary cities

President Trump recently ordered that federal funds be withheld from cities and counties that don't help immigration officers. An April 25 court ruling temporarily stops that from happening.


The court ruling blocks enforcement of Section 9(a) of the president's executive order.


This means that, for now, the federal government can't stop funds going to Oregon, where a law keeps Oregon police from helping federal immigration officers.


The ruling also helps Portland and Multnomah County, which are sanctuaries. See the county and the city sanctuary resolutions (for the city, click the download button).
