Texas Governor Greg Abbott encouraged the state legislature to pass a bill that would deny state funding for cities that refuse to cooperate with immigration officials.

The city attorney from San Francisco has filed a suit in federal court to stop President Trump’s executive order to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities.

One of Donald Trump’s first actions as president was to issue an executive order that targets sanctuary cities by directing local and state agencies to enforce existing immigration laws or face losing federal funds. In response, San Francisco is suing the Trump administration, claiming that the orders violate states’ rights provisions. And in flagrant disregard of Trump’s order, the state of California is attempting to become the first-ever sanctuary state.

Scarcely two days after President Trump signed an executive order which would in part review immigration policy between the United States and select countries, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham are already seeking to undermine the president and his executive order.

A new Rasmussen Reports survey finds that 56 percent of likely U.S. voters favor President Trump’s temporary ban on immigrants from seven Middle Eastern countries.
