SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - President Donald Trump is lashing out at a judge's ruling blocking his attempt to strip funds from "sanctuary cities" that don't cooperate with U.S. immigration authorities, calling it "ridiculous" and vowing to take the case to the U.S. Supreme Court.
In January, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that requested that the Department of Homeland Security and Justice Department block sanctuary cities from receiving federal funds.
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)".
"You see judge shopping, or what's gone on with these people, they immediately run to the Ninth Circuit", Trump added.
Trump tweeted that the 9th circuit has "a bad record of being overturned (close to 80 percent)". They used to call this "judge shopping!" The Associated Press reported on Wednesday that Trump's tweet is "apparently a reference to the 9th Circuit's liberal reputation and rulings that have often irked conservatives".
Out of our very big country, with many choices, does everyone notice that both the "ban" case and now the "sanctuary" case is brought in ...
Then, in March, Trump blasted another federal judge's ruling that blocked a revised version of the travel ban, suggesting it was a politically motivated decision that made the U.S. look "weak". U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii and U.S. District Judge Theodore Chuang in Maryland said comments by Trump supported the allegation that the ban was aimed at Muslims. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding for each of them, making it hard to plan their budgets."It's not like it's just some small amount of money", John Keker, an attorney for Santa Clara County, told Orrick.
The ruling did not end the government's battle against sanctuary cities and counties.
Spicer Slams Ninth Circuit: 'They Have a Horrible Record of Interpreting The Law'
"Once again, a single district judge - this time in San Francisco - has ignored Federal immigration law to set a new immigration policy for the entire country", it said.
White House chief of staff Reince Priebus described the ruling as another example of the "9th Circuit going bananas". In the term that ended in 2015, 10 appellate circuits, including the one on which Gorsuch was serving, had reversal rates higher than the 9th Circuit.
The 9th is by far the largest of the 13 federal courts of appeals, which means that in raw numbers, more cases are heard and reversed from the 9th Circuit year in and year out.
The Trump administration says sanctuary cities allow unsafe criminals back on the street and that the order is needed to keep the country safe.
Additionally, for the law to survive, there must be a connection between the money at stake and the immigration policy the president is seeking to enforce, Schlanger said.
San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera praised the ruling and said the president was "forced to back down".
But Schlanger said whatever action is taken may not survive court scrutiny if it's seen as unduly coercive.
