‘Sanctuary’ cities: Santa Clara County seeks to permanently nix Trump’s defunding order

On the heels of legal victories last month, Santa Clara will on Wednesday ask a federal court to declare unconstitutional and permanently ban enforcement of an executive order de-funding “sanctuary” jurisdictions.

The county’s motion comes after a U.S. District Court judge upheld a preliminary injunction he previously granted blocking President Donald Trump’s executive order stripping Santa Clara County and other so-called “sanctuary jurisdictions” of federal funding.
