Appeals Court Tosses Nationwide Injunction Against Sanctuary City Defunding

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 on Wednesday that a San Francisco Judge went too far last April with a nationwide injunction against President Trump's January Executive Order, which would withhold funding from "sanctuary" cities and counties. The panel, however, agreed that Trump may not withhold funding from San Francisco or Santa Clara County for limiting their cooperation with immigration enforcement officials.

The panel (1) affirmed the district court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of the City and County of SanFrancisco and the County of Santa Clara in an action challenging Executive Order 13,768, “Enhancing PublicSafety in the Interior of the United States,” which directed the withholding of federal grants to so-called sanctuary jurisdictions; (2) vacated a nationwide injunction. -9th Circuit

"Given the absence of specific findings underlying the nationwide application of the injunction, the panel vacated the nationwide injunction and remanded for reconsideration and further findings," the panel ruled. 

While we agree that the district court was correct to enjoin the Administration from enforcing § 9(a) against the Counties, the present record is not sufficient to support a nationwide injunction. We therefore vacate the injunction and remand for careful consideration by the district court.

Read the ruling below:

President Trump blasted Judge William H. Orrick's April, 2017 ruling which accused him of overstepping his authority – saying in a statement at the time "Once again, a single district judge – this time in San Francisco – has ignored federal immigration law to set a new immigration policy for the entire country." 

The city of San Francisco argued that the executive order violated the Constitution by "effectively trying to commandeer state and local officials to enforce federal immigration law," wrote the New York Times. The city estimated that it stood to lose over $1 billion in federal funding as a result of the EO, while nearby Santa Clara said it would lose around $1.7 billion – or more than a third of its revenue

In short, while the 9th circuit agreed with San Francisco and Santa Clara that Trump's Executive Order reached beyond his authority, they found that Orrick's ruling could not be applied nationwide.
