9th Circuit sides with Trump on sanctuary cities
Many parts of Los Angeles are lined with the homeless living in tents. Instead of tending the needs of American citizens, the Democrats who run the city welcome illegal aliens. Now the politicians will pay for that decision.
The Hill reported, "The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday ruled in favor of the Trump administration's efforts to prioritize federal dollars for local policing to towns and cities that complied with certain immigration policies.
"The ruling, a split 2-1 decision, said the Department of Justice (DOJ) was within its rights to withhold Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) grants from sanctuary cities and states over their refusal to work with federal immigration enforcement authorities and instead prioritize agencies that focused on unauthorized immigration and agreed to give Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) access to jail records and immigrants in custody.
"The city of Los Angeles first sued the administration after it was denied a $3 million grant on the grounds that it did not receive the money because it did not focus on immigration for its community policing grant application. The decision reversed a district court’s ruling."
The dissenting vote was not from an Obama judge.
It was from Kim Wardlaw, a Clinton judge. When appointed in 1998, Democrats touted her as the first Hispanic American woman to be appointed to a federal appeals court.
From earlier today: 9th Circuit sides with Trump over Planned Parenthood.
The 9th is getting sane.
