California governor says Jeff Sessions acting like Fox News

08 March 2018

Senate Bill 54, Assembly Bill 103 and Assembly Bill 450 - the three laws that Sessions sued over - restrict California law enforcement officials from cooperating on federal immigration actions, limit the ability of local jails to contract with the federal government to house immigrant detainees, and require employers to ask for a warrant before allowing immigration authorities to conduct a workplace raid.

He added: "When people feel confident to come forward to report crimes in our communities or participate in policing efforts without fear of deportation, they are more likely to cooperate with the criminal justice system". Sessions claims that Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers "failed to make 800 arrests" because of Schaaf's statements. Only the California State Sheriffs' Association actively opposed the so-called sanctuary law.

Sessions is so full of political partisanship he is completely worthless as an Attorney General. States say they should not have to spend their limited resources on a federal responsibility and a perception the local law enforcement works with immigration officials hurts community relations.

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.

Meanwhile, California officials are prepared to fight back and hold their stance against Trump's decidedly anti-immigrant policies. Sessions said at a news conference.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is taking the fight over the nation's immigration policy directly to California by suing to block state laws that extend protections to people living in the U.S. illegally. "We know that is a racist lie, and we will shed light on that myth every day", the statement continued.

Guido Pella was edged by Nicolas Jarry 6-7 (2-7) 6-4 7-6 (7-2), while Gael Monfils went down to Horacio Zeballos 6-3 3-6 6-3. Anderson, who had been in the form of life this year so far, was in his third final of 2018.

Sessions was expected to announce on Wednesday the lawsuit during a meeting with law enforcement officials in California. Jeff, these political stunts may be the norm in Washington, but they don't work here. SAD!

Brown accused the administration of "going to war" with California and said Sessions was acting "more like Fox News than a law enforcement officer" in his visit. It's an escalation of the battle over federal and local immigration enforcement, one of the first issues the Trump administration addressed after the president took office a year ago.

California Gov. Jerry Brown blasted Sessions' announcement, accusing the administration of trying to "polarize America". A divided Supreme Court voted 5 to 3 to invalidate some big parts of that Arizona law on the grounds that the federal government has supremacy here, that the feds trump state law.

States and cities say their policies are protecting the best interest of their citizens.

It will serve as some sort of ironic justice if Trump can get a judge to issue an injunction against these California laws and prevent them from being enforced until the case is resolved.

Larger US cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago and NY ruled by the opposition Democrats, adopted policies that hinder the sharing of information between the local police and immigration officers. Sessions had called that bill "unconscionable".
