There are number facts that arent dispute, that

First, the federal funding that the counties contend
jeopardy because the Executive Order.
With respect Santa Clara, the 2015-2016 fiscal year, received $1.7 billion federal federally-dependent
used for variety safety-net programs.
Thats percent the Countys total revenues.
The Valley Medical Center, the only public safety-net
healthcare provider the county, gets billion federal
funds, which percent its expenses.
The County Social Services Agency, which provides child
welfare and protection, aid needy families, support for
disabled children, and the like, receives 300 million, which percent its budget.
Public Health Department and Office Emergency Services
also receives significant federal funds.
For San Francisco, received $1.2 billion its budget,
plus 800 million multiyear grants which are primarily for
public infrastructure.
The funds are used for core social services such
medical care, meals vulnerable citizens, 100 percent
Medicare, percent the Department Emergency Management, percent Human Services Agency, and percent the
Department Public Health. thats with respect federal funding.
And then there dispute concerning the existence policies that the
counties contend put them the crosshairs the Executive
Order. for the County Santa Clara, the ordinance theres ordinance that prohibits employees from providing ICE with
information collected while providing critical services
benefits, from initiating inquiry enforcement action based immigration status.
since ICE does not agree reimburse costs.
And doesnt honor detainer requests
For San Francisco, theres ordinance that prohibits the
use funds resources assist enforcing federal
immigration law and prohibits law enforcement from detaining
individual solely because detainer request.
provide advance notice ICE about release unless certain
conditions are met. those facts are not dispute.
That does not dont need argument those.
But like start with Santa Claras argument, and
really ask you focus the two central arguments that the

Executive Order riddled with unconstitutionality.
But tell about the harm that Santa
Clara going face result the order, which does not
define what sanctuary jurisdiction is.
that youre the crosshairs?
MR. KEKER: how you know couldnt more clear that were
the crosshairs because the way the President has described
the purpose the order, the way the Attorney General has
described the purpose the order, and the way these DDORs,
which are coming out, are identifying.
The most recent one identified Santa Clara one
the one the counties that had the most detainers.
Section and Section identified Santa Clara county
that had policies that were inconsistent with federal law,
exactly what the Attorney General supposed after.
But the irreparable harm exists now, before the Attorney
General acts, because this overhang, this coercive overhang Federal Executive Order, that has the force law,
threatening and coercing local governments all over the
country, but particularly Santa Claras case with percent its budget.
What are you going do?
Youre either going
something that believe unconstitutional, knuckle under
what the Executive Order says you should do, youre going something that violates County policy and that that the
County believes unconstitutional.

And weve cited cases.
The one that the Ninth Circuit seems most point,
that gets away from structural, personal, all that, this
American Trucking case; that that Hobsons choice per

per irreparable harm.
Weve cited the Texas cases for the coercion, and the
District Court cases that youre aware of.
And this this lot worse than the Texas cases. the Texas cases, the amount money that was involved was
much less.
The stream funding was much less.
Here, the Hobsons choice of, the one hand, acquiescing unconstitutional order and, the other hand, violating
detainees Fourth Amendment rights, fairly drastic.

facts, what the Hobsons choice involved cuts the

Sessions has made plain his willingness use the Executive

So, heard the Courts questions, you
have two questions for right now.
The first whether the
Executive Order changes existing law. yes, does.
And the answer that
San Francisco agrees with the points that counsel for
Santa Clara made. want focus one specific thing. dont want repeat those points, but

threatens withhold all federal funds from sanctuary

Ms. Eisenberg.

Thank you.
Good morning, Your Honor. wanted

All right.
Thank you, Your Honor.
Thank you.
Mr. Readler.
You have new interpretation the Executive Order?
Thank you, Your Honor.
May please
the Court.
No, thats not correct.
But want walk through the
terms Section because think, when plainly read, they
disarm many the arguments that weve seen the other side.
And just like start noting that, consistent with
his constitutional duty take care our current laws and faithfully executed, the President issued this Executive
Order which reflects the policy directives the United States
with respect the enforcement priorities existing
immigration law.
And couple key points the outset.
The Order does
not rewrite the law.
not instruct the Department Justice Department
Homeland Security engage unconstitutional activity. does not invoke new powers, and does
The Court very familiar with the interpretive rule that
laws are read narrowly, typically, try avoid
constitutional problems. friends the other side have read the order
absolutely broadly possible and have followed that with lots constitutional arguments, which, the order actually
extended that far, may well raise constitutional issues. think can pretty quickly walk through Section
and explain its application just its plain terms, not taking word for it, but just looking the plain terms Section
All right.
So, first, Section directed two
directed the Department Homeland Security.
Its directed the Department Justice and
Those are the only two agencies Section 9(a) excuse Section 9(a) that are directed anything.
theres direction happy give the Court moment.
No, no, no. quite familiar with this. was just going the policy section Section that
says that its the policy the executive branch ensure
that jurisdictions that fail comply with applicable federal
law not receive federal funds except mandated law.
Correct, which pretty vanilla
statement about the fact that people have comply with the
Its broad statement, Mr. Readler, but ahead.
Its certainly broad policy statement.
And, certainly, executives and all political leaders use the
bully pulpit encourage compliance with policy directives
that they think are important. think the real operative terms here are Section
which, again, dont create new law.
Section this not 9(a).
Treasury any other agency.
But with respect

And, again, the 9(a) and, think, least eight
nine other parts throughout the Executive Order require
compliance with law.
DOJ -So you would agree that there was
clearly unconstitutional order, just dropping the language
the extent provided consistent with law wouldnt save
that unconstitutional policy, would it?
Well, assuming there was ripe dispute there was actually going enforcement steps taken under
the law, then that might fair question.

And dont even
But so, for example, there Executive Order that prohibited the sale excess federal
property African Americans the extent consistent with
law, that would unconstitutional order, wouldnt it?
That would hard defend, Your
Honor, correct.
And thats why think its important walk through,
again, what Section 9(a) does. federal grants where its made clear the grantee that
they must require 1373.
acknowledge that their briefs.
And, also, 9(a), again, applies
And friends the other side
The San Francisco brief, Exhibit attaches one the
documents that was issued, actually, last year the prior
administration with respect these issues, the Inspector
General and the Office Justice Programs.
put their radar last year.
These issues were 2016, OIG identified number jurisdictions that
potentially could violating 1373.
Office Justice Programs issued memo any grantee

comply with 1373.
And following that, the
Thats acknowledged footnote the Santa Clara

And footnote their complaint, they theres mystery friends the other side
about the fact which grants are issue and the fact that
there will express requirements, part those grants,
that you have comply with 1373 eligible.
Are you arguing that the Executive Order targeting three grants that were conditioned year ago?
that the argument?
Well, the Executive Order directed

And its and its would have grants where there
There are there are some grants from the past year

came out, there were some grants that were expressly

that there will DOJ and, potentially, DHS grants that have

There ambiguity about that.

Those will known the parties.
But thats the range
Then what would the purpose this
Executive Order then?
The purpose the Executive Order
highlight the country and, again, perfectly permissible
use the bully pulpit.
highlight issues they care about.
Executives this all the time
This obviously one the Administration has highlighted,
and they have instructed their agencies carry out the law.
This priority, certainly, the Administration terms law enforcement, and thats what this accomplishes.
And think you can see that then the next
sentence weve now explained the first sentence applies only limited range grants and applies only dollars where
the recipient notice.
The second sentence directive the Secretary -separate from the first sentence, the Secretary DHS
identify sanctuary jurisdictions.
consequences attached that declaration.
Secretary does not even determine what its view, how
will carry this out what jurisdictions might comply.
There are direct legal
First all, the think the other important point, terms todays
purposes, theres direct legal consequences associated
with that section.
The first part 9(a) talks about federal grants, and the
last part talks about potential preemption enforcement actions theres dispute.
But that middle sentence, again, authorization
request that the DHS carry out this determination.
dont know what the criteria are.
And theres direct loss dollars associated with that
But ones been designated.
Theres process all here; right?
Well, there certainly the order.
Well, the order just directs the
Secretary look into the issue and make the designation. dont know how the Secretary going that. theres certainly ripe dispute terms theres
been declaration even any explanation how the
Secretary going reach the sanctuary jurisdiction
designation, all.
And, again and, again, the consequences that, the
order does not state any direct monetary other, you know,
injury that might flow from that.
And, fact, friends the other side essentially
both acknowledge themselves sanctuary jurisdictions.
mean, this term multiple interpretations.
have embraced that that term.
And they say DHS makes that declaration that thats
injury any kind, awfully difficult say this point
for number reasons.
Well, dont you think that the Attorney
General has also embraced that definition?
respect the City and County San Francisco.
Particularly with
Well, certainly, again, with the use
the bully pulpit, theres lot discussion about sanctuary
jurisdictions, encouraging communities governments this
all the time.

because that was mentioned this morning.
General Sessions then said exactly what saying now. said:

Moreover, the Department Justice will require
jurisdictions seeking applying for department grants

receiving those awards. goes say:
This policy entirely consistent with OJPs
guidance issued last July under the previous

But, too, theres actually one aspect that where,
youll recall, the Supreme Court didnt enjoin it, and said

They needed time themselves interpret how what these

say that have consulted with members the Department

Not particularly plain.
What was plain

But appreciate that you got this reading from the -from the Order.
And thats what going looking
when leave the bench.
Thank you, Your Honor.
With respect the March 27th statement, what the what
General Sessions said that some cities have adopted policies frustrate the enforcement immigration laws.
referred detainer requests.
That was one part the think could certainly fairly said that the federal
government would prefer that the cities comply with the
detainer requests, and that not doing would frustrate the
objectives the federal government because the federal
government has objective policing this area.
But that that had nothing with whether something sanctuary jurisdiction under Section 9(a) the order,
which goes specifically federal grants and the requirements,
and then preemption suits that could brought against local
jurisdiction for violations 1373.
That quote there says nothing about 1373. read you the
longer quote from from General Sessions, that went right
the 1373 issue that were talking about.
confusion about that.
There should
And appreciate friend, Mr. Keker, reading the last
sentence there, which said the Department Justice will take
lawful steps claw back any funds awarded jurisdiction
that willfully violates 1373.
First all, that was tied
directly the prior statements that read with respect
enforcement 1373 federal grants. this only clawback funds that would have been
made under federal grant the Department Justice the
Department Homeland Security and identified for the Court
that the only was just last year when the
Department first started including express requirements about

And Santa Clara has not identified any funds that would
subject that.
thats thats little bit bit strawman thats been
put for the Court.
Neither has San Francisco. think
Just very briefly, one, with respect OMB, its
certainly OMBs job collect information and collect reports.
OMB not the one who would enforce federal immigration law.
They dont enforce federal grants that are administered DOJ

President could issue such pardon, which would protect broad egory migrants from the
penalties imposed for various civil violations the nation immigration laws. Plain Language the Constitution Indicates that Pardon Power Reaches All Offenses

Which Immigrants Could the President Pardon? Pardon Immigrants with Minor Old Convictions: immigration laws can have
