SF Defiant As Ever After Jeff Sessions Sues California

08 March, 2018, 02:12 | Author: Bert Pena
  • 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

"I call on him to apologize to the people of California."ALLIES IN ACTION: Get help with your rights to justice, equality and civil libertiesBrown said Sessions told three "lies" about California: that it protects criminals, has open borders and that the state wants to secede from the rest of the country".

They spoke shortly after Sessions addressed law enforcement officers at a separate meeting of the California Peace Officers Association in Sacramento.

The latest development in this saga, however, greatly ups the ante with regards to the state's sanctuary laws and sanctuary cities, the protections which are in place to shield undocumented immigrants from the deportation demands of the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (otherwise known as "ICE").

"The provisions of state law at issue have the goal and effect of making it more hard for federal immigration officers to carry out their responsibilities in California", the complaint filed in Sacramento states. It allows ICE agents to interview immigrants at county jails, though not to hold permanent office space there. The Department of Justice declined to comment when asked this week about whether a probe was underway.

"Jeff Sessions just called me an embarrassment". "This is a portrait of dragnet-style immigration enforcement, which studies have shown time and time again makes communities less safe, not more". "Immigration law is the province of the federal government", he said. It was carried by state Senate leader Kevin de León, a candidate for U.S. Senate, who has led the anti-Trump resistance in the Legislature.

Sessions strongly criticized Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf for her unusual public warning recently of an operation by federal immigration officers.

Von Spakovsky said California's stance in the Arizona litigation during the previous administration might come back to haunt the state in court. "It's not wise, it's not right, and it will not stand", said Governor Jerry Brown.

State Sen. Steve Glazer, a Democrat from the San Francisco Bay Area who voted for the three bills being challenged by Sessions, told Courthouse News the visit was a "poke in the eye" with all the makings of a political stunt.

Brown said he is still willing to cooperate with Sessions on immigration enforcement targeted at criminals, which he said is possible because of limitations he demanded in SB 54.

In the time since Donald Trump won the presidential election, there has been an increasing amount of tension between lawmakers in Washington DC and lawmakers in California.

The Justice Department claims that this forces California employers to be caught between state and federal law.

"Those are 800 wanted criminals that are now at large in that community - 800 wanted criminals that ICE will now have to pursue by other means, with more difficulty in unsafe situations - all because of one irresponsible action", Sessions said.
