Seattle is suing Trump for his threats to sanctuary cities. Says unconstitutional

Seattle announces lawsuit over Trump sanctuary cities threat

SEATTLE — Seattle filed a lawsuit Wednesday over President Donald Trump’s executive order that threatens to withhold federal funds from communities that refuse to cooperate with efforts to find and deport immigrants in the country illegally.

Mayor Ed Murray said the order issued in January punishing “sanctuary cities” is unconstitutional and creates uncertainty around the city’s budget.

“This administration has created an atmosphere of anxiety in cities across America and has created chaos in our politics,” Murray said. “It is time for cities to stand up and ask the courts to put an end to the anxiety in our communities and the chaos in our system.”
