For years, Democrats have relied on the courts to push their progressive agenda forward.
Looks like those days are coming to an end.
President Trump has slowly, but surely, transformed the federal courts. Courts that once rubberstamped the left’s agenda are now balanced.
He just flipped the once-radical Ninth Circuit Court! Isn’t that amazing? Now, it is led by conservative, Constitutionally-minded judges.
Thanks to his efforts, the administration has won several, high-profile cases. The courts gave him a win on immigration rules and a funding cut to Planned Parenthood.
Now, Trump may have gotten one of his biggest wins to date.
From The Hill:
A federal appeals court on Wednesday ruled that the Department of Justice (DOJ) could withhold funding from cities and states that refuse to cooperate with the Trump administration’s crackdown on undocumented immigrants…
The panel’s opinion… found that Congress had delegated authority to the attorney general to set conditions on the federal grant program it had created.
This is pretty important . A federal appeals court voted 3-0 to overturn a ruling that blocked Trump’s move against sanctuary cities.
The president threatened to withhold federal funding to sanctuary cities.
But as the DOJ prepared to cut their funding, seven liberal states sued Trump’s administration to stop him.
And then a liberal lower court ruled that Trump had to give this money to sanctuary states.
But this federal appeals court just unanimously gave Trump the clear.
So now, Trump can (and will) withhold crucial funding to cities and states don’t follow federal immigration law.
I’d like to see New York Governor Cuomo or California Governor Newsom try to explain to their voters why they so easily lost this money!
Something tells me residents won’t be too happy to hear how their state is hurt because their leaders are putting outsiders ahead of Americans.
If Democrats were smart, they’d throw out their sanctuary laws immediately.
But do you think they will? Or will they just keep complaining about the president?
This move is a wakeup call to all citizens in sanctuary states. Pick new leaders, ASAP, or suffer the consequences.
SHARE if you think Trump should pull funding from all sanctuary cities.
