Are you kidding me!? How the heck is Donald Trump, the President of the United States, supposed to get ANYTHING done as long as sniveling liberal judges are blocking EVERYTHING he tries to do!?

Trump signed an executive order to block the funding from sanctuary cities as long as they continued to be a “sanctuary city,” simply meaning they are harboring illegal immigrants and protecting them. Say that again out loud. Trump tried to stop city officials from breaking the law by protecting other people who are breaking the law! Yet he gets blocked, yet again, by a judge. WTH!?

CSB Fransisco reports:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities.

U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court.

The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope.

San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding.

But an attorney for the Justice Department, Chad Readler, said at a recent court hearing that it applied to a limited set of grants.

Readler said less than $1 million was at stake nationally and possibly no San Francisco funding.
