Trump calls court's sanctuary ruling ridiculous

Posted April 27, 2017

President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter in reaction to a federal judge's ruling that knocked down an immigration order, calling the decision "ridiculous".

The ruling, which applies nationwide, was another judicial setback for the Trump administration, which has now seen three immigration orders stopped by federal courts in its first 100 days, the daily reported.

Asked about Orrick's ruling Wednesday, Trump averred that he is "never surprised by the 9th Circuit", reinforcing an early morning tweet in which he declared that it "has a awful record of being overturned (close to 80 percent)".

"Orrick notably used Trump and Sessions" own words against them in his ruling: "If there was doubt about the scope of the order, the President and Attorney General have erased it with their public comments", Orrick said.

The federal judge, who blocked the executive order Tuesday, "has ignored federal immigration law to set a new immigration policy for the entire country", the statement said.

"This case is yet one more example of egregious overreach by a single, unelected district judge", the White House statement said.

The ruling stems from lawsuits filed by Santa Clara County and the city of San Francisco. The initial order, issued January 25, included a provision declaring that "sanctuary jurisdictions shall be ineligible to receive federal grants".

The ruling did not end the government's battle against sanctuary cities and counties. Eighteen of the court's 25 judges were appointed by Democratic presidents.

In February, the Ninth Circuit ruled against the White House order to suspend immigration from seven mostly-Muslim countries as well as all refugees.

In the last Supreme Court term, the 9th Circuit came in second on that score.

Even if the president could do so, those conditions would have to be clearly related to the funds at issue and not coercive, as the executive order appeared to be, Orrick said.

Despite Trump's pointing to the 9th Circuit, Judge Orrick actually sits on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, from which cases are appealed to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. "The president has called it "a weapon" to use against jurisdictions that disagree with his preferred policies of immigration enforcement".
