Jerry Brown nukes Sessions' anti-immigration California speech

In the latest encounter between the nation's most populous state and the Trump administration, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asking the court to bar California from enforcing the contentious new laws. "The State of California" is a marked escalation.

The law limits who state and local law enforcement agencies can hold, question and transfer at the request of federal immigration officials. "This is basically going to war against the state of California - the engine of the america economy". U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has said it will increase its presence in California, and Sessions wants to cut off funding to jurisdictions that won't cooperate.

On the eve of Attorney General Jeff Sessions' visit to Sacramento, Calif. on Wednesday, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit against California, the state's governor Jerry Brown, and the state's attorney general Xavier Becerra. ICE director Thomas Homan, who accused the mayor of tipping off criminals, also announced that the Department of Justice would launch a "review" of the mayor's actions.

Justice Department officials are arguing that these laws violate the Constitution's supremacy clause, rendering state laws invalid when they conflict with the federal laws. Defenders of the practices say they improve public safety by promoting trust among law enforcement and immigrant communities and reserve scarce police resources for urgent crime-fighting needs.

At issue are California laws known as AB 450, SB 54 and AB 103.

"Violent crimes against the community shouldn't be supported in any way, shape, or form but there are people being deported for just being an undocumented immigrant", Garcia said.

The lawsuit contends that the U.S. Constitution and laws enacted by Congress give the federal government the "preeminent authority to regulate immigration matters" and that the Constitution does not allow a state to interfere with those powers. Another California legal action against Trump's plans to build a border wall was struck down by a federal judge.

The laws "reflect a deliberate effort by California to obstruct the US' enforcement of federal immigration law", the lawsuit said.

Prosecutor Becerra, son of immigrants, has sued Trump's government a score of times. "And I believe we are going to win", according to an excerpt of his prepared remarks. And it's one of the most diverse U.S. states at a time when Trump's core of support is based in white voters. State Senator Kevin de Leon, who helped write the sanctuary bill, says the law is on California's side. The Immigrant Worker Protection Act prohibits local business from sharing employee records with federal officials without a court order or subpoena. But the divisions are more urgent than policy lawsuits.

"California won't let employers voluntarily allow ICE agents on their property". ICE had conducted over 150 raids across northern California. It's also not even close to the only effort the administration has undertaken against California immigration policies.

In slamming Sessions' appearance as a "political stunt" that was full of "lies" and untruths, Brown needled Sessions personally and his relationship with the President, which is famously fraught.

The attorney general referred to California officials as "open borders radicals". We will remain a Sanctuary City.

Nevertheless, the Trump administration claims that California state officials must be commandeered into federal service against their will.

Sessions maintained his commitment to border security and legal immigration policies, accusing left-wing "extremists" of protecting "lawbreakers".
