PAUL JEFFKO 217 W COTA ST SHELTON WA 98584-2263 THE ITALIAN-AMERICAN VOICE OF MASSACHUSETTS ml (Formerly LA GAZZETTA del MASSACHUSETTS) VOL. 121 NO. 18 BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, MAY 5, 2017 $.35 A COPY 24 Taste of the North End Fundraiser Fills Skating Rink to Capacity by Matt Conti by Why is Trump's Sanctuary City Order Unconstitutional? A federal judge in San Francisco partially blocked President Trump's attempts to defund =sanctuary cities that do not fully comply with federal immigration officials. The judged ruled it was unconstitutional. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick ruled that Trump could only withhold funding such as Justice Department grants tied to law enforcement. He added that the executive order was =coercive" and violated fundamental principles in the Constitution. San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee applauded the ruling and the California attorney general called Trump's move "executive overreach." But U.S. Atty. General Jeff Sessions stated, "The judges don't get to psychoanalyze the president to see if the order he issues is lawful. It's either lawful or it's not." Bottom line for me comes from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, who stated, =Ours is the job of interpreting the Constitution. And that document isn't some inkblot on which litigants may project their hopes and dreams." This lower court ruling will be appealed up to the U.S. Supreme Court, which I still have great faith will do the right thing and allow the executive order to be implemented. Those suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome may not like it, but that doesn't make it unconstitutional.
