Judge Knocks Down Another Immigration Order, Tax Plan Guidelines, and More

A San Francisco judge used President Donald Trump’s own words to block an executive order that would cut federal money to so-called “sanctuary cities.”

This is the third time in two months that an order regarding Trump’s proposed immigration ban has been blocked by the courts. 

U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling as a result of two lawsuits brought against the administration by the city of San Francisco and the county of Santa Clara. The preliminary injunction against the sanctuary cities order will stay in place while the lawsuits work their way through court. Read the story from The AP.
