THE U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE WILLIAM ORRICK ISSUED THE TEMPORARY RULING - STOPPING DONALD TRUMP - TO WITHHOLD FUNDING COMMUNITIES THAT LIMIT COOPERATION WITH U.S. IMMIGRATION AUTHORITIES.

Donald Trump has been using his " bully pulpit " - issuing Executive Orders - with NO detail plans and so far - has been making a fool of himself.

This is what the United States District Judge William Orrick had to say : 

" The Constitution vests the spending powers in Congress, not the President, so the Order cannot constitutionally place new conditions on Federal Funds. Further, the Tenth Amendment requires that conditions on Federal Funds be unambiguous and timely made; that they bear some relation to the funds at issue; and that the total financial incentive not be coercive. Federal Funding that bears no meaningful relationship to immigration enforcement cannot be threatened merely because a jurisdiction chooses an immigration enforcement strategy of which the President disapproves."

"Meanwhile, for the first time we learn that the Department of Justice, at oral argument, also contended the sanctuary cities Executive Order was toothless - merely an exercise of Trump's 
" bully pulpit " to encourage communities and states to comply with the law".

Here is the brief - well argued and this temporary injunction - is the first step - the on going case - has very good merit - more,  with the support of millions - who seek fair play and justice - our Nation is a Nation of laws:
