Orrick ruled the case will advance into the next phase of deliberations.
The Trump administration argues that California, which recently became a “Sanctuary State,” is defying federal law by harboring illegals and refusing to cooperate with federal immigration officials.
California is attempting to shield at least 2.3 million illegal aliens from being deported, claiming the Trump administration is “over-stepping its authority” by carrying out sweeping raids in the state.
California couldn’t be more wrong if they tried, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been working to withhold more grants from the non-compliant liberal state.
Sessions said states and cities who harbor illegals are only accelerating the crime and gang violence.
In July, Sessions put states on notice that they would no longer receive Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance grants unless they complied with federal immigration officials.
Sessions is asking states to share data from detention facilities and notify immigration officials when an illegal is about to be released — both of which are basic functions of the law.
