Miami-Dade County commissioners voted 9-3 Friday in favor of upholding Mayor Carlos Gimenez's order to drop the county's status as a sanctuary city.

Miami-Dade is the only U.S. county where more than half the population is foreign-born. As one of his core campaign promises, President Donald Trump vowed to eliminate federal funding to these so-called sanctuary cities.

Judge Alex Ferrer was a guest Sunday on "Fox & Friends Weekend" discussing this vote.

Ferrer said Miami did not want to lose its federal funding and he thinks more cities will follow suit.

"It's a harbinger of what's gonna [sic] happen across the country as cities are denied the money that they depend on for their budgets and for their special projects," said Ferrer, a former Miami-Dade County circuit judge.

He said Trump plays a direct role in this situation since he is the one that started the change.

"Like him or not, he is living up to his campaign promises," Ferrer said.
