CALIFORNIA CHAOS: Federal Judge BLOCKS Trump’s Fight to End ‘Sanctuary Cities’

Originally published at:

A federal judge officially blocked the Trump administration’s quest to crackdown on California’s ‘Sanctuary City’ policies Thursday; rebuking the White House’s efforts to stop local municipalities from shielding illegal immigrants from federal agents.

According to Politico, U.S. District Court Judge John Mendez of Sacramento rebuked the President’s attempts to fight the state’s ‘Sanctuary’ policies, stopping the Dept. of Justice’s efforts to retrieve detailed information from California officials regarding undocumented workers.

“While the ruling is a setback for the Trump administration’s attempt to enforce immigration laws in states where leaders favor more liberal policies, Mendez did block parts of one of the disputed California laws, including provisions that banned private employers from voluntarily cooperating with immigration officials and from re-verifying the legal work status of employees,” writes Politico.

“Refusing to help is not the same as impeding,” wrote the judge’s decision. “Federal objectives will always be furthered if states offer to assist federal efforts. A state’s decision not to assist in those activities will always make the federal object more difficult to attain than it would be otherwise. Standing aside does not equate to standing in the way.”

Here is a different point of view:
How about investing the Passion and support of illegal immigration right at the root of the “matter”?
Instead of Santuary Cities in USA, at the expense of the constituency’s own safety, go to the country of origen where the ‘migrants’ come from!
All the Energy invested in contradicting current administration’s initiative to uphold the Laws in the Books of the Land, enforce these Laws, while protecting the whole Nation, not only the ‘buckets of deplorables’ & 'white “racists” ’ that voted for Trump!
Go to the root of the problem! Suport them at their own turf with your own limitless resources!
Teach them how to take care of themselves, even fight to protect their own life-styles!
Spliting these families was a DETERRANT! To persuade them not to make the journey…
Morality to obey All Laws, without prejudice in ignoring the way in, then demanding equal rights as citizens of a Nation they had chosen to invite them selves in!
Responsibility to protect their own children, without taxing the generocity of the good people of USA!
