The mayor of Seattle says that President Donald Trump's order against sanctuary cities is unconstitutional, and he's suing over the city's right to disobey federal immigration authorities.
Child sexual abuse allegations
Five people have accused Murray of sexual abuse. In April 2017, a lawsuit against Murray claimed that Murray "raped and molested" a teenager in 1986, paying cash for sex to a high-school dropout addicted to crack-coc aine. Two other men made similar allegations in 2007, including a foster son who said Murray sexually assaulted him in 1984 while he was a teenager. He also spoke with a child welfare investigator and detective at the time, and persuaded the investigator that Murray had sexually abused him; however, no charges were filed.
Through a spokesman, Murray denied the allegations, describing them as falsehoods intented to prevent his re-election. Later, Murray's lawyer stated that Murray had undergone a medical examination that disproved a claim about his genitals, arguing the lawsuit should be dropped.
On September 12, 2017, Murray's cousin accused him of sexual abuse when the two teens shared a bedroom in the mid-1970's. Later that day, Murray denied the new allegation, and announced his resignation, effective the next day.
After his resignation, Amnesty International asked the Police Service of Northern Ireland to open an investigation into Murray's 1974 trip to Belfast and Wales, which involved chaperoning 30 Catholic and Protestant children.

Fighting against anti-constitutional laws is now unconstitutional?

In a case of the cities of Portland and Seattle against President Trump, U.S. District Judge Richard Jones in the Western District of Washington relied on the Ninth Circuit's decision in finding "it would be unconstitutional for Executive Branch agencies to withhold appropriated funds from plaintiffs Cities of Seattle and Portland pursuant to Section 9(a) of the Executive Order."
A federal judge has ruled in favor of Portland and Seattle in a case against President Trump's executive order barring sanctuary cities from receiving federal funds.
The ruling Wednesday by Western District of Washington Judge Richard A. Jones follows an opinion from the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in August that rendered unconstitutional a section of Trump's executive order declaring sanctuary cities ineligible for federal grants.

I lived in Tacoma, WA, back in the early 90s, and visited Seattle often. It was a beautiful city, 30 years ago.
We visited Seattle a few years ago, and it is NOT the city I remember... and, it's only gotten worse since then...
The liberals/progressives have destroyed this city, just as they have with San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, Detroit, Chicago, New York, Baltimore, D.C. and Philadelphia.
Let him sue. The liberals are on their way out, it is only a matter of time...
