AG Sessions announces suit against California’s Sanctuary Laws
A lawsuit against the State of California has been filed by the Department of Justice. It involves three laws regarding immigration enforcement. KUSI’s Ginger Jeffries explains.
California Gov. Jerry Brown responded saying, “This is really unprecedented for the chief law enforcement in the United States to come out to California and act more like Fox News than a law enforcement officer. This is a political stunt. It’s more like Fox News than what’s going on in Washington, it’s not about the truth. It’s not about protecting our state. It’s about dividing America.”
Governor Brown emphasized on that point saying, “This is completely unprecedented for the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the United States to come out here and engage in a political stunt, make wild accusations, many of which are based on out-right lies, that is unusual, particularly from a fellow coming from Alabama, talking to us about secession and protecting the human and civil rights. I do think this is pure red meat for the base, and I would assume, this is pure speculation, Jeff thinks Donald will be happier with him and I am sure Donald will be tweeting his joy at this particular performance.”
