Attorney of San Francisco filed a lawsuit in court, challenging the decree of the President of the United States Donald trump, which limits funding to cities that refuse to give illegal migrants the Federal government, reports Reuters.

Last week, trump has signed decrees about border security and immigration. Earlier, the press Secretary of the White house Sean Spicer said that the decrees would contain measures such as the construction of the «physical barrier» at the border, a mass expulsion of illegal immigrants with criminal records, the refusal of Federal funding for cities that refuse to give immigrants the Federal government.

According to the Agency, the lawsuit cites violation of the tenth amendment to the U.S. Constitution. San Francisco became the first «city of refuge», where a lawsuit was filed against the decree of the President.
