The federal government filed suit late Tuesday against California, Gov.
The attorney general cited acting ICE chief Thomas Homan, who indicated his agency failed to arrest 800 criminal illegal immigrants because of Schaaf's intervention.
Fred Vanderhoof, Chair of Fresno County Republic Party, is against sanctuary state laws. He also said that he spoke with former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on possible responses to the DOJ's lawsuit, and said that Legislature will have a response later today. Brown said he hoped to have a "rational discussion" with U.S. Department of Justice officials once Sessions' "circus" left Sacramento. The Trump administration argues that California's laws are unconstitutional under the Supremacy Clause, which states that federal law "shall be the supreme Law of the Land".
"This administration has tried to portray all immigrants as villains".
In his speech, Session said he does not "want to be in this position of having to challenge these [California] laws" but that he can't sit by while the federal government is flouted. State Senator Kevin de Leon, who helped write the sanctuary bill, says the law is on California's side. I understand that we have a wide variety of political opinions out there on immigration, but the law is in the books and its goal is clear.
Sparks could fly this morning in Sacramento as Attorney General Jeff Session speaks before the California Peace Officers Association, unveiling the Trump Administration's plan to sue the very state whose capital he now stands in. Brown told the AG that "political stunts" like those work in Washington, not California.

This lawsuit is a misguided waste of federal resources - much like the Administration's indiscriminate approach to immigration enforcement that has entangled hard-working residents, including the recent deportation of a Bay Area nurse and mother of three.
"Oakland is a city of immigrants".
"Despite how (De León) has presented the issue, the law enforcement profession, which CPOA represents, can not and does not engage in immigration enforcement".
"This is basically going to war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy", Brown said.
Meanwhile, Schaaf has staunchly defended her position, saying she would go to jail to defend her city's sanctuary city policies, which are legal and limit the cooperation of the Oakland police department and ICE.
