San Francisco has filed the first lawsuit against Trump’s sanctuary city order, which also affects Philadelphia.

In what could be the first of a wave of lawsuits over the issue, San Francisco has sued President Donald Trump over his plans to strip so-called “sanctuary cities” of federal funding. Philadelphia is one of the cities targeted by Trump’s executive order.

The suit was filed on Tuesday by San Francisco city attorney Dennis Herrera. “The president’s executive order is not only unconstitutional, it’s un-American,” Herrera said. “That is why we must stand up and oppose it. We are a nation of immigrants and a land of laws. We must be the ‘guardians of our democracy’ that President Obama urged us all to be in his farewell address.”
