(NewsReady.com) – The Supreme Court was busy on Monday, June 15. The justices issued a number of decisions including one related to a request by President Donald Trump’s administration to hear a case about sanctuary cities. Not everyone is very happy with what they decided, though.
The Supreme Court denied a motion by the Trump administration to hear arguments in United States v. California. The case has to do with whether or not the Golden State’s sanctuary city laws are legal. Now that the court has refused to take the case on, a ruling from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upholding the law will stay in place.
#SCOTUS will not take up federal govt’s request to overturn California’s “sanctuary state” law, which bars state & local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration authorities

Although Liberals are celebrating this as a win, it’s important to note that no precedent was set. That means the administration can continue challenging sanctuary laws. There are many factors that go into the decision about whether or not the highest court is going to take on a case; this one, in particular, could simply not have been deemed strong enough for the SCOTUS to hear. It might be a setback, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end for this issue.
