Trump DOJ sues California over ‘interference’ with immigration enforcement
On the heels of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf warning local residents of imminent ICE raids, potentially allowing several dangerous criminals to escape, Lieutenant Gov. Gavin Newsom, who’s running to replace Gov. Jerry Brown, is calling for other local leaders to do the same thing. #Tucker
The Trump Justice Department filed a lawsuit Tuesday night against California, saying three recently-passed state laws were deliberately interfering with federal immigration policies.
“The Department of Justice and the Trump Administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions was expected to tell California law enforcement officers on Wednesday. “We are fighting to make your jobs safer and to help you reduce crime in America.”
The state’s Democratic governor, Jerry Brown, fired back: “At a time of unprecedented political turmoil, Jeff Sessions has come to California to further divide and polarize America. Jeff, these political stunts may be the norm in Washington, but they don’t work here. SAD!!!”
