Liberals aren't going to be happy about this one, but it is terrific news.
On Wednesday a federal appeals court delivered Trump a massive victory in his fight against 'sanctuary cities.'
The court ruled that the DOJ could legally deny grant money to cities and states that refuse to cooperate with the Trump admin's crackdown on illegal immigrants.
If Democrat-run cities still want to defy the orders of the President of the United States, they will now have a hefty price to pay.

A federal appeals court on Wednesday handed a major win to the Trump administration in its fight against “sanctuary” jurisdictions, ruling that it can deny grant money to states that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in New York overturned a lower court ruling that stopped the administration’s 2017 move to withhold grant money from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program, which dispenses over $250 million a year to state and local criminal justice efforts.
“Today’s decision rightfully recognizes the lawful authority of the Attorney General to ensure that Department of Justice grant recipients are not at the same time thwarting federal law enforcement priorities,” a DOJ spokesman said in a statement. “The grant conditions here require states and cities that receive DOJ grants to share information about criminals in custody. The federal government uses this information to enforce national immigration laws--policies supported by successive Democrat and Republican administrations.”
“All Americans will benefit from increased public safety as this Administration is able to implement its lawful immigration and public safety policies,” the statement said.
This ruling is a crucial victory for Trump and his efforts to crack down on 'sanctuary' policies across the nation.
Sanctuary policies limit local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration authorities in order to protect illegals from being deported.
It's ridiculous that Trump is even having to go through all of this for simply wanting to enforce national laws.
Democrats care more about protecting illegals these days then they do actual American citizens.
Let that sink in for a moment.
In more good news, last week it was announced that Trump was deploying tactical Border Patrol agents to 10 major sanctuary cities.
