Court Permanently Enjoins Trump's 'Sanctuary Cities' EO

County of Santa Clara v. Trump, Nov. 20, 2017 - "I GRANT the Counties’ motions for summary judgment on the Executive Order and permanently enjoin Section 9(a). ... The Counties have demonstrated that the Executive Order has caused and will cause them constitutional injuries by violating the separation of powers doctrine and depriving them of their Tenth and Fifth Amendment rights. Accordingly, the Counties’ motions for summary judgment are GRANTED regarding Section 9(a). The defendants are permanently enjoined from enforcing Section 9(a) of the Executive Order against jurisdictions they deem as sanctuary jurisdictions. Because Section 9(a) is unconstitutional on its face, and not simply in its application to the plaintiffs here, a nationwide injunction against the defendants other than President Trump is appropriate."
