A federal judge in New York ruled Friday that the Trump administration can not hold public security contributions to six states and New York City based on the fact that they are so-called refugees.
“In accordance with all other courts which have considered these, the court issues that the defendant had no legal authority to impose these terms,” the decision said.
The city, six states ̵
“The courts have spoken: President Trump’s attempt to bully our city to maintain its draconian immigration policy is unconstitutional,” said mayor Bill de Blasio in New York. “Unlike Trump’s factual claim, on the other hand, by welcoming immigrant communities, we have helped to make this the safest big city in the country. This is a big victory and we will never stop fighting for the sake of immigrant New York.”
The Ministry of Justice tried to set immigration-related conditions for the scholarships, which totaled in millions.
The states said that it was power separation and challenged the administration’s power to force them to adopt President Trump’s preferred immigration policy.
The judge quoted the administration’s “lack of authority to impose the three terms of federal funding” and noted “the power difference serves as a control of tyranny and concentration of power.”
New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood called the decision a “great profit for New York City’s public security.”
“This decision requires the Trump administration to distribute these important public security funds – helping to ensure that our local law enforcement agencies can continue to decide how to maintain New York’s best,” she said.
Added New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, “In New York, we will always stand up for the values that built this state and this nation and fight all efforts to spread hatred and division.”
