'Tremendous Defeat' for Trump's DOJ as Judge Rules in Favor of Philadelphia's Sanctuary City Status

Julia Conley, staff writer

A federal judge ruled on Wednesday that the Trump administration's policy of withholding law enforcement funding from Philadelphia over its status as a sanctuary city "violates statutory and constitutional law."

Contrasting with the Justice Department's policy, Philadelphia's refusal to cooperate fully with federal immigration authorities was based in "reasonable, rational," and "equitable" logic, ruled U.S. District Judge Michael Baylson.

I’m sure Bozo the Clown President is screaming his head off today.

Can’t wait to watch him once Mueller makes his findings public.

At least there’s one member left on the federal judiciary who hasn’t been bought or bullied into submission. I hope he’s got tenure and a long healthy life ahead.
