WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Trump administration, escalating its fight with so-called sanctuary cities, asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday to narrow a lower court’s nationwide order preventing the federal government from denying public safety grants to municipalities that limit cooperation on immigration enforcement.

The Justice Department asked the high court to make the injunction issued by a federal judge in Chicago cover only that city and not the entire country.

The injunction was upheld by an appeals court in April. The justices likely will ask the city of Chicago for a response before deciding on the request.
