Attorney General Sessions Slams Calif. Leaders for Protecting Criminal Illegal Aliens

The suit was filed in the Sacramento federal court Tuesday and names Gov. Jerry Brown and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra as defendants

Sessions on Wednesday announced a Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit against California on Wednesday during a speech to the California Peace Officers' Association in Sacramento.

"California is using every power it has - and some it doesn't - to frustrate federal law enforcement", Sessions said.

In a statement previous year the association's president, Gardena Police Chief Ed Madrano, said the compromise "addresses the significant public safety concerns we raised during this debate, and it reaffirms what we have held since the beginning, which is that California law enforcement should not be used to assist in mass deportations". "A series of actions and events has occurred here that directly and adversely impact the work of our federal officers", Sessions said.

The legal fight between the state and the Trump administration comes just days after the liberal mayor of Oakland warned illegal immigrants of impending ICE sweeps throughout the Bay Area. And those who take the law and illegality. We will remain a Sanctuary City.

Protesters who greeted Sessions offered a stark reminder of the kind of resistance he faces.

"What Jeff Sessions said is simply not true and I call upon him to apologize to the people of California for bringing the mendacity of Washington to California", the governor told reporters.

"This is exactly what Sessions wants: to coerce state and local officials in California and beyond to be enablers in President Trump's aggressive deportation machine. Federal law is 'the supreme law of the land.' I would invite any doubters to Gettysburg, and to the graves of John C. Calhoun and Abraham Lincoln", Sessions said.

Santa Clara University law professor Pratheepan Gulasekaram argued that the sanctuary state law had a good chance of surviving the federal challenge. "It's in the Constitution". It was carried by state Senate leader Kevin de León, a candidate for U.S. Senate, who has led the anti-Trump resistance in the Legislature. "Bragging about and encouraging the obstruction of our law enforcement and the law is an embarrassment to this proud and important state".

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra also had strong words to say on the matter and vowed that the state will stay the course in order to protect all the state's citizens by upholding the law. "They will not shake our beliefs", Farrell said in a statement directed toward Sessions. Commonly known as sanctuary laws, those statutes, among other actions, prevent businesses from allowing federal immigration officers to enter their property without a warrant. "We are a state of immigrants". "That, I think, is a legal problem for California".

The other two laws restrict private employers' cooperation with immigration officials and require inspections and reviews of immigrant detention facilities in the state. "But it seems like they have a case".

"It's time for the American public to see this racist stunt for what it is: A perverse use of power that prioritizes politics over public safety", Gascón said in a statement.

California has the opportunity to flip Congress to a Democratic majority, and California is at the center of the administration's backwards immigration policy.

"So here's my message to Mayor Schaaf: How dare you?".
