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.
