“The judge, William H. Orrick of United States [9th] District Court for the Northern District of California, issued a nationwide preliminary injunction against the administration, directing it to stop trying to cut off aid to sanctuary jurisdictions. But the order does not prevent the federal government from moving forward on designating certain places as “sanctuaries,” nor does it keep the administration from enforcing conditions for doling out federal money if they already exist, as the Justice Department has already begun to do with some law enforcement grants.”
Why not stop funding the 9th Circuit? Let them sue to get their money back. And live off their savings in the meantime.
UPDATE: According to Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist, Orrick was a campaign money bundler for Obama in 2008 and for John Kerry in 2004. Now there’s a surprise.
