Lawfare: Trump Administration Is Going To War Over California's Nonsense Immigration Law

Attorney General Jeff Sessions testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee last October

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).

Sessions pointed to Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf (pictured above left, next to Sessions), who publicly warned last month that an ICE raid in northern California was imminent.

Fresh off his announcement of a lawsuit to block California's sanctuary state policies, Attorney General Jeff Sessions will join Shannon Bream, tonight at 11:00pm ET, on Fox News Channel. Attempts to require local law enforcement officials to enforce federal law-something that is most certainly not their job-cost millions of dollars and, by deterring cooperation with police, make it hard to do the day-to-day work of keeping people safe.

It requires a court warrant before an immigrant can be transferred from local to federal custody and bars local law enforcement officers from asking about individuals' immigration status during routine interactions. "How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of law enforcement officials just to promote a radical open borders agenda?" Justice Department officials said that violates the Constitution's supremacy clause, which renders invalid state laws that conflict with federal ones.

Broadcom vows to invest $1.5B to train U.S. engineers
The company is now based in Singapore, but said in November that it will move its legal headquarters back to the United States . The proposed takeover of Qualcomm by Broadcom could be the largest ever tech acquisition in history if it is given the go-ahead.

The California laws were passed in response to Trump's promises to sharply ramp up the deportation of people living in the US illegally.

The Supreme Court reinforced the federal government's primacy in enforcing immigration law when it blocked much of Arizona's tough 2010 immigration law on similar grounds.

California is home to the largest number of undocumented immigrants, almost one-quarter of the estimated 11 million in total across the United States. State Senate leader Kevin de León - whose bid for the U.S. Senate is premised on opposing Trump - showed up at protests outside Sessions' speech and called in former Attorney General Eric Holder to file an amicus brief opposing the administration.

And, echoing California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, Brown attacked Sessions's own Southern origins, saying that the Golden State did not need "a fellow from AL coming to talk to us about secession and protecting human and civil rights".

If you're wondering what Nest has to do with the Amazon vs Google war , it was of course acquired by the latter some time ago. As a result, those Nest products that are now listed on Amazon are expected to be removed once their stocks run out.

"Here's my message to Mayor Schaaf-how dare you". AG Becerra says California is not in the business of deportation, but in the business of safety. Brown says the actions are about dividing America. "Her actions support those who flout our laws and boldly validate the illegality", he said.

In Sacramento this morning, Sessions questioned California's so-called "sanctuary state" policies. Brown declared the lawsuit "SAD!" in a Trump-like statement, while the Democrats running to replace him decried Sessions' move. Jerry Brown and state Attorney General Xavier Becerra.

"California, we have a problem", he said while discussing the Justice Department's newly launched lawsuit against California. He said the mayor's alert allowed 800 "criminals" to escape ICE agents during a statewide sweep that netted 232 people.

Demonstrators are blocking traffic outside a hotel where Sessions will deliver a speech to law enforcement officials.
