CASE ENTRY

City of Chicago v. Sessions

After Congress fails to pass legislation to address so-called sanctuary cities, President Trump exercises the power of the pen and the phone to withhold federal funding from municipalities that don’t cooperate with federal immigration officials. Seventh Circuit: Congress didn’t give the President that power, and he can’t take it for himself. Partial concurrence/dissent: That’s true, but the district court didn’t have the power to enter a nationwide injunction.
