A federal judge has riled against President Donald Trump's executive order to restrict federal grants to sanctuary cities, according to reports. 

U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos said the Trump administration as not permitted to hold back millions of dollars in grant money from states acting as "sanctuary" jurisdictions.

Ramos favored New York City's and the state of New York petition, along with others, The Associated Press reports.

Following Trump's order, the Justice Department began new terms to the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program, which subsidizes state and local governments, according to the Associated Press.

With the extensions was a condition that when an illegal immigrant was released from custody, the local officials would inform federal agents, and allow them to interview inmates concerning their standing in the country, the outlet said.

Local governments will also have to agree not o place limits on giving immigration official citizenship data about anyone.

In the turning out the restrictions, then-U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions stated that the aim was to "encourage these 'sanctuary' jurisdictions to replace their policies and partner with federal law enforcement to remove criminals.”

The new requirements went against the constitutional limits on the administration’s ability to manage spending decisions and federal power over states, the states and city maintained.

Ramos addressed that the information-sharing requirement “impinges on (the states' and city's) sovereign authority and their citizens' liberty to be regulated under their preferred state and local policies.”

In a statement posted on Twitter, New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood praised the ruling as “a major win for New Yorkers’ public safety.”

The Trump administration does not right to claim state and local police to act as federal immigration agents.
