Federal Judge Blocks Sanctuary City Funding Order; Charges Against Day Care Owner for Death of Baby
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

A federal judge in California has blocked the Trump administration's order to withhold certain funding from communities that do not cooperate with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick in San Francisco issued a temporary stay while a lawsuit against the executive order on sanctuary cities is argued in court. Last week, the Department of Justice sent letters to several cities, including Philadelphia, reminding them that they would lose certain grant funding if they are not compliant with federal immigration law. That would be about $1.7 million for Philadelphia. The cities of San Francisco and Santa Clara County, who filed the suit, disagree on the scope saying billions of dollars of funding were at stake. The deadline for response to that justice letter was June 30th.

The owner of a day care facility in Lehigh County has been charged after a 3-month-old baby girl was found unresponsive and died on her first day. Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli announced that a grand jury approved charges of child endangerment against Sharon Ballek, owner of the now-closed Sharon's Day Care. Baby McKenna Rose Felmly was placed face down for a nap, a violation of day care regulations. She was left unsupervised for 25 minutes and then found unresponsive. She was pronounced dead at a hospital. The coroner found the cause of death was “sudden unexpected infant death.”
