A federal judge has blocked the Trump administration's rules requiring so-called sanctuary cities to help enforce federal immigration laws in order to receive funding.

U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber issued a nationwide preliminary injunction against the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Friday after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced new rules governing DOJ law enforcement grants, The Chicago Tribune reports.

The city of Chicago sued the Trump administration last month over the DOJís threat to withhold those grants from "sanctuary cities," which are cities that refuse to help federal authorities enforce immigration laws.

Leinenweber said in his 41-page ruling that Chicago had shown a "likelihood of success" in its arguments that Sessions exceeded his authority in July when he announced that the DOJ would withhold public safety grants to sanctuary cities.

1. Good news for today.

But I cant let a single one of these pass without throwing future cold water on it, and that is you see because of something that recently happened that I am not allowed to mention, soon ALL courts ALL judges or sure as hell most will be rightwing sycophants to the right of Scalia and you will never be able to rely on justice again.

And sure, that is bad, but anything is better than ....oops, i almost did it AGAIN
