A federal appeals court on Wednesday ruled that the Department of Justice could withhold funding from cities and states that refuse to cooperate with the Trump administration's crackdown on undocumented immigrants.
A three-judge panel on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a district court judge's ruling that the department lacked the authority to impose immigration-related conditions on certain funding.
A group of seven states and New York City sued the DOJ in 2017 after then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the agency would start withholding funding from local governments that refused to share information about undocumented immigrants or provide jail access to federal authorities investigating inmates' immigration status.
The states challenging the policy are New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Washington, Massachusetts and Virginia.

Never too much winning
The hits keep on coming
I could get used to all this winning.
Wow, this is an important ruling.
This is a good result in isolation but underscores why Federal “grants” in general are a bad thing.
They always come with strings attached.
More winning probably due to new republican judges appointed!
The Wins just keep on coming!
So this is why Smuckey wants the 8.5 billion. I could see them setting it up with a “law enforcement” component to get around POTUS. I may have fallen off the turnip truck, but it wasn’t yesterday....
Yes! Doing a happy dance.
In the last 2 years, federal appeals courts in Chicago [Seventh Circuit], Philadelphia [Third Circuit] and San Francisco [Ninth Circuit] have ruled against the Trump administration by upholding lower-court injunctions placed on the enforcement of some or all of the challenged conditions.
It is to laugh. Reena Raggi writes the decision for our side.
This sets up a Supreme Court fight.
