Seattle Sues Trump Over Sanctuary Cities

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

Progressive cities continue their tantrum over President Trump’s effort to crack down on sanctuary cities.

Democrat Seattle Mayor Ed Murray challenged Trump’s executive order that seeks to deny federal funds for cities that harbor criminal illegal aliens in a lawsuit.

The Hill reports:

The suit, filed Wednesday, asks a federal district court judge to declare that the city is acting in accordance with federal law. It also asks the judge to declare that Trump’s order is an unconstitutional violation of the 10th Amendment by attempting to force the city to enforce federal immigration law.

The suit also argues that the order violates Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, by withholding federal money unrelated to immigration enforcement in an attempt to force the city to comply.

It does not seek a restraining order halting Trump’s executive order, though.

Murray joins other big city mayors such as New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel who are defying Trump’s sanctuary city policy.

Let’s hope the courts do a better job with this sanctuary city lawsuit than it did with Trump’s effort to address extreme vetting.
