More bad news for the trump administration; a federal judge in NY has ruled against his sanctuary cites threat declaring it "Unconstitutional".

"Nov. 30 (UPI) -- A federal judge in New York ruled Friday the Trump administration's threat to withhold public safety funds to jurisdictions with so-called "sanctuary" policies is unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos of the Southern District of New York ruled in favor of seven states that sued the Justice Department after it required in June that states comply with new rules enforcing federal immigration law. The action put the country's local and state governments on notice that they would lose federal funding if they refused to cooperate.

"Ramos said the Justice Department "did not have lawful authority" to force local and state governments to notify the federal government when an undocumented immigrant was in custody."
