A US judge on Tuesday blocked President Donald Trump's executive order which sought to withhold federal funds from so-called sanctuary cities for immigrants.

The ruling from US District Judge William Orrick III in San Francisco said Trump's order targeted broad categories of federal funding for sanctuary governments, and that plaintiffs challenging the order were likely to succeed in proving it unconstitutional.
