Santa Clara County Mobilizes for Legal Action Against Executive Order

Santa Clara County Mobilizes for Legal Action Against Executive Order

The local government leaders of Santa Clara County have approved the filing of a lawsuit against Trump over his executive orders related to immigration. The Board of Supervisors have been anticipating this move since Trump announced his intention to withhold federal funding from state and local government entities that choose not to comply with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials. Santa Clara County is slated to receive roughly $300 million in federal funds. While the county’s move may be somewhat unorthodox, county leaders state that they are simply using the judicial system available to them in order to at least slow down the implementation of the order. Additionally, the $300 million in potential losses can become more like $1 billion in losses as a result of also losing matching funds. The county claims that these cuts in federal and matching funds will cut various programs that impact everyone in the county, such as hospital services and park maintenance. The Board of Supervisors indicated that the cost of funding the lawsuit will be minimal. The county Impact Litigation department will handle the lawsuit, along with pro bono law firms. Plus, there may be the opportunity to partner with other government entities in the future. With the many executive orders aimed at immigrants coming from the White House, you undoubtedly are frightened at the prospect of removal and the separation of your family by the borders of different countries. Especially for those individuals who have lived in the United States for a lengthy period of time and built a life with your family, the possibility of detention and removal is absolutely horrifying.
