Jerry Brown nukes Sessions' anti-immigration California speech

Attorney General Jeff Sessions will speak about ‘sanctuary jurisdiction’ issues at an annual conference organized by California Peace Officers’ Association according to the U.S. Department of Justice

"Federal agents must be able to do that job that Congress has directed them to do".

"California is using every power it has - and some it doesn't - to frustrate federal law enforcement", Sessions said. "I believe that we are going to win".

Sessions strongly criticized Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf for her recent unusual public warning that an operation by federal immigration officers was imminent.

Sessions said, "How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of law enforcement just to promote your radical open borders agenda?" In its lawsuit, the federal government argued that it forces the release of immigrants who have already shown a willingness to engage in criminal activity.

The lawsuit is being filed in federal court in Sacramento and brings the Trump administration's feud with California to a new level.

Sessions did not preview what his announcement will entail.

"We look forward to reviewing the facts as they present them to our attorneys".

"Look, we know the Trump administration is full of liars", Brown said.

During Sessions' speech, Schaaf posted a tweet touting Oakland's violent crime rate, saying it has dropped over the last five years.

Seahawks Trade Defensive End Michael Bennett To Eagles
The Eagles have a rotation that will consist of Bennett, Graham, Barnett, Long, and possibly Steven Means at defensive end. Given his ability to move inside and play defensive tackle, Bennett was arguably one of the best values in football.

"This is a very aggressive act on the part of the Trump administration", Mr Brown said.

Demonstrators are blocking traffic outside a hotel where Sessions will deliver a speech to law enforcement officials. Known as the Sanctuary State law, Senate Bill 54 prohibits state and local law enforcement from cooperating with immigration agents without a court order and creates safe zones around schools, courts and hospitals. Another stops local governments from contracting with for-profit companies and ICE to hold immigrants.

Dozens of demonstrators have gathered in Sacramento, California, to protest an appearance by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. At this point, California has more lawsuits going than you can keep track of without a custom app on your phone.

The lawsuit is the latest salvo in an escalating feud between the Trump administration and California, which has resisted the president on issues from marijuana policy to climate change and defiantly refuses to help federal agents detain and deport immigrants.

Meanwhile, California Senate Leader Kevin de León gave an even more impassioned response, describing the suit's challenges to state laws as a "racist and xenophobic attack" that will tear apart families.

On Tuesday, California Gov.

Last month, President Trump said "if we ever pulled our ICE out, if we ever said, 'Hey, let California alone, let them figure it out for themselves, ' in two months they'd be begging for us to come back". Brown told the AG that "political stunts" like those work in Washington, not California. Colorado, Illinois, New Mexico, Oregon and Vermont have state sanctuary laws, as do more than 300 municipalities across the country. It also makes an exception for suspects in serious crimes punishable with prison time for which a judge has found probable cause.

Besides the CPOA, other groups involved with the event are the California Police Chiefs' Association, California District Attorneys Association, California State Sheriffs' Association, California Narcotic Officers' Association, and the California Highway Patrol. Sessions said several California state laws prevent U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers from making deportation arrests and singled out elected officials for their actions.
