It was Attorney General Sessions, because California is purposely violating Federal law.

About time.

I was just going to post this, too!

The below from NPR describes the laws being challenged:

Quote:
The new federal case represents an escalation of the long-running battle between the Trump administration and California, whose Democratic governor, Jerry Brown, and attorney general, Xavier Becerra, have positioned themselves as ideological opponents to the White House on matters from immigration and climate change to criminal justice.

Last year, California lawmakers passed three immigration-related laws that feature prominently in the new lawsuit. One bars private employers from voluntarily cooperating with federal immigration officials and requires businesses to notify workers in advance of a federal raid.

A second law restricts state and local law enforcement from voluntarily sharing information with the feds about the release dates of undocumented people in their custody. That law also bars the transfer of undocumented people into federal custody. The third law under federal challenge covers state inspections of detention facilities that hold noncitizens in federal custody.
https://www.npr.org/2018/03/06/59130...migration-laws

The DOJ has a pretty strong case. While the federal government cannot force state governments to enforce federal law, state governments cannot interfere with legitimate federal authority under the Constitution and inferior laws. CA crossed the line when they forbade or otherwise hindered the ability of private citizens from cooperating with federal authorities on a uniquely federal issue.

It is insane how much they love their illegals. Imagine a law the requires employers to tell their employees when a ICE raid is planned.
I can only imagine that the employer would be had up on charges by the state if he fired all his workers that didn't show up on the day of the ICE raid.
The Feds can go after the guy for hiring them and the state goes after him for firing them.
What a mess.


I wonder how long this lawsuit will take to play out? I sure hope it can be resolved by 2020 but I'm sure it will be grinded out in court. We can only hope that the good people of CA finally see how ridiculous their elected are and they give them the boot.

Hmmm. Is this an emotional response or do you have any valid facts?


First and foremost I don't support sanctuary cities. We have a rule of law that should be followed. I have concerns about why Trump is targeting California. Why not Chicago or any other sanctuary city? What are his motives for attacking the 6th largest GDP in the world?

Why is California a sanctuary city? Unfortunately illegals contribute billions to California's GDP. It's always all about the coin.

So again, why is Trump targeting California and not all sanctuary cities?

It could be that California passed a sanctuary state law. Itís not just a city, itís the whole state. I donít think any other state has done that.
