Trump administration sues California over 'sanctuary' laws

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

The lawsuit targets three laws in particular: the Immigrant Worker Protection Act (HB 450), the Inspection and Review of Facilities Housing Federal Detainees law (AB 103); and the California Values Act (SB 54).

"Despite how (bill author Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León) has presented the issue, the law enforcement profession, which CPOA represents, can not and does not engage in immigration enforcement".

His plans on immigration have put him at odds with sanctuary cities and the state of California, which in October was declared a sanctuary state by legislation signed by Brown.

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. Jerry Brown (D), is in his final year in office.

"The Department of Justice and the Trump Administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies", Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Wednesday.

"So here's my message to Mayor Schaaf: How dare you!" He claims 800 "wanted criminals" eluded arrests as a result. "How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of law enforcement just to promote your radical open borders agenda?"

Sessions has blamed sanctuary city policies for crime and gang violence.

Sessions received a polite if not warm reception from law enforcement officials, even when he told them his goal was to make their jobs safer. More than a dozen attendees in a room of about 200 people gave Sessions a standing ovation. Demonstrators blocked traffic outside the with many chanting "stand up, fight back" and "no justice no peace". A heavy police presence was on hand.

"This is a reminder that California does not see his federal policies", said Steven Lynn, 33, a Sacramento graduate student. Trump is scheduled to visit next week to inspect the border wall prototype designs.

California sheriffs have called on the GOP-controlled Congress to intervene and pass federal law to change the state's sanctuary status, arguing that the law ties their hands too tightly and will only increase the chances of another high-profile tragedy.

The 10 amendment of the U.S. Constitution "provides California with the right to decline to participate in civil immigration enforcement", Becerra said. The Justice Department called the laws unconstitutional and asked a judge to block them. A second law bars private employers from allowing immigration officials to access employee records without a court order or subpoena.

The suit heightens tensions between California and the Trump administration, and sets up a judicial showdown over the scope and degree of state cooperation with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

Much of the complaint hinges on a 2012 Supreme Court ruling where the justices overturned part of Arizona's state immigration laws, saying states couldn't be allowed to create a patchwork of policies.
