Abstract On March 1, the ACLU of Northern California representing the YWCA Silicon Valley filed a motion to intervene in County of Santa Clara v. Trump, a lawsuit challenging President Trump’s executive order threatening to withhold federal funding from so-called “sanctuary cities.”

The motion argues that the executive order is an unconstitutional attempt to punish cities, counties and states that decline to become full-fledged agents of federal immigration enforcement. By threatening grants to nonprofits such as YWCA Silicon Valley, the order jeopardizes services that are critical to the health and safety of residents.
