U.S. judge rejects injunction bid in sanctuary cities fight

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Monday rejected California’s request for a pretrial injunction to force the federal government to fund a law enforcement grant that has been delayed in a dispute over the state’s so-called sanctuary city policies.

U.S. District Judge William Orrick in San Francisco ruled that the $1 million grant was too small to justify an injunction while the lawsuit unfolds, given the state’s overall budget.
