(Worthy News) - A federal judge in Northern California has declined a request from California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to block the Trump administration’s decision to withhold a law enforcement grant to the state as part of its crackdown on states and jurisdictions that protect illegal immigrants.

Becerra asked for a preliminary injunction against the Trump administration's decision, but Judge William Orrick of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California ruled against taking that step.

“The injury threatened is not irreparable,” Orrick wrote. “The amount of money at stake is small compared to the state’s budget. Payment is delayed, for the moment. The DOJ appears to be using its regular administrative process to decide whether it will follow its initial inclinations.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]

  1. Pray that our Heavenly Father will give victory to the judges in this nation ,who are judging without partiality, who are not holding their hands out for a bribe, and who will uphold righteousness and justice. These are the things our God desires in His Word. May God set the oppressed free who are being denied justice. May any of the leaders of this nation (Executive, legislative, or judicial branches, the education system, business, and law enforcement) who are setting traps for the innocent, let it be as King David prayed.... LORD let the righteous go free and let the wicked man's own foot get caught in the traps they set for the innocent. God did it for Daniel (in the lions den) and for Mordecai in the book of Esther. LORD rise up and defend the innocent. In Jesus precious Name. AMEN
