The ruling on Friday struck down a law passed by the administration, that required local governments to share the immigration status of individuals with the federal government.

The judge cited a Supreme Court ruling stating that the federal government cannot block state governments from passing their own laws.

The ruling only applies in Chicago for now, but the judge announced he plans to push for the ruling around the nation.
