The Los Angeles Times reports:
A federal appeals court decided 2-1 Wednesday that the Trump administration may not withhold federal funds from immigrant-friendly “sanctuary” cities and counties. The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a district judge’s ruling in favor of San Francisco and Santa Clara County, which sued over the administration’s threats to withhold money to jurisdictions that have passed laws limiting local law enforcement cooperation with federal immigration authorities.
