The Trump administration has something to celebrate today as a federal appeals court upheld Texas’ steps to ban sanctuary cities, which el Trumpo has supported.

More about the law:
A federal appeals court has upheld the bulk of a Texas law targeting “sanctuary cities” that is backed by the Trump administration as part of a crackdown on illegal immigration.
The ruling Tuesday by a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans allows Texas to enforce what critics call the toughest state-level immigration measure in the country.
The law allows police officers to ask people during routine stops whether they’re in the U.S. legally and threatens sheriffs with jail time for not cooperating with federal immigration authorities.
And that’s good because it likely sets a precedent for Trump imposing his own restrictions on sanctuary cities, which he promised way back in the presidential campaign, and should be supported by all conservatives no matter how much they may dislike Trump…
