(Worthy News) - The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court for a stay on a federal judge's that blocks the law enforcement agency from denying grants to cities based on immigration policy.

The emergency application, filed by Solicitor General Noel Francisco, seeks to block a Chicago judge's decision that prohibits the Justice Department from giving grants to "sanctuary cities," which is an indefinite term adopted by some cities to designate they utilize policies aimed at prohibiting federal agencies from implementing immigration laws.

Back in September, U.S. District Judge Harry D. Leinenweber ruled that Attorney General Jeff Sessions likely overstepped his authority when he urged sanctuary cities to give federal immigration officials access to jails or alert when a suspected undocumented immigrant is scheduled for release.
