Sessions to make major ‘sanctuary jurisdiction announcement’ in Sacramento tomorrow

By Patrick following x   2018 Mar 6, 6:03pm 8,502 views   143 comments   watch   sfw   quote     share    


Attorney General Jeff Sessions is scheduled to be in Sacramento on Wednesday to make what his office describes as a “major sanctuary jurisdiction announcement,” just blocks from the state Capitol, where a new law making California a sanctuary state was passed and signed.

Sessions did not provide advance details of his announcement, but his Justice Department has been in an escalating legal battle with California, dozens of cities and counties in the state, including San Francisco, and hundreds nationwide whose laws and policies restrict local police and jailers from taking part in federal immigration enforcement.

His targets have included the local and state sanctuary laws, already the subject of court battles, as well as local officials like Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who publicly warned the immigrant community Feb. 24 of an impending Bay Area raid by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

What California is doing with the $10,000 fine for voluntary compliance with Federal Rules and Regulations that California has no jurisdiction over, is no different than "Nullifications" attempts of South Carolina before the Civil War.

Once again Rep/Cons have nothing.
Which Party is in charge?
How many illegals are in America?
Do we have laws that can have them deported?
What has Trump/Sessions done to enforce our laws?
Why haven't they done something?
What are they going to do?
Will he declare Martial Law & immediately rid America of this invasion of rapist & murderers?

That's what I thought.

Don't agree. Keeping State Officials from intimidating witnesses and cooperative reporters regarding an issue over which they have no Legal Authority, is an important step to maintaining the Rule of Law and a Republican Form of Government.

State Officials cannot give themselves powers expressly delegated to the Federal Government, nor actively interfere with those powers.

After nearly a year of threats, the Trump administration made its most aggressive move to date against a familiar target of its ire: California and its immigration policies.

Late Tuesday evening the department filed a federal lawsuit against the state and its top officials to stop a cluster of so-called "sanctuary state" bills -- a move that puts the administration on offense but is nonetheless likely to generate heated litigation over the boundaries of immigration authority.

It's not merely 'non-cooperation'.

A state that says you'll be fined $10,000 for voluntarily cooperating with Federal Authorities on a Federal-only matter is the state is actively interfering aka obstructing.

Not to mention a threat to the rule of law from States punishing the right of individuals to cooperate with Authorities and overstepping their bounds into a field they have no jurisdiction.

Countless Federal Courts have struck down Countless attempts at States to regulate immigration, this is will ajudicated similarly, with California's laws being declared null and void.

Why is it the right wingnuts are huge advocates of states rights except when they aren't? Nothing like having a firm set of principles.

Disagreed, vehemently. Question is - what is the goal? If the goal is to remove illegals, you are right. But the goal is to make noises about removing illegals to get votes from gullible Americans while employing illegals in meat packing plants and paying peanuts to them to increase PROFIT.Everything R establishment wants is accomplished extremely efficiently.

If latter is not the intended outcome, then someone please explain me why E-verify is not mandatory ( with R President, Con-gress, and Senate) and why employers are not fined in hundreds of thousands for employing illegals.

Hanging around the Aryan Brotherhood are we ?

Funny the AG isn't going after these groups

1. One can deport illegals, while one can not deport US-citizen morons who are in groups you mention. Your comparison is not really valid.
2. Law enforcement is treating bikers, for example, much worse than illegals. Care to look at this - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_Waco_shootout - and comment when was the last time law enforcement executed (extra-judicially) nine illegal gang members.

So we can assume you would be cool with individual states banning abortion? Of course you wouldn't. I don't see any Red States going against Federal abortion laws right now, so the State's rights hypocrisy is firmly with the Democrats right now.

Unlike abortion, immigration enforcement (or lack of enforcement) effects the entire country and is totally in the purview of the Federal Government.

There's no way the country would have survived this long if it wasn't there.

Bob, think about your position. You are saying a State Government can compel people through fines NOT to cooperate with the Federal Government.

South Carolina Tariffs almost anytime pre 1860. "Anybody who tells the Feds about Tariff Evasion shall be fined..."
Some State that wanted to stay Wet, 1920s "Anybody who cooperates or provides information without a warrant to the Untouchables and Elliot Ness"
Some place full of Germans in WW1 or WW2: "Anybody who cooperates with the US Navy regarding the potential presence of U-Boats with a court order shall be fined..."
Alabama Civil Rights 1950s "Anybody who voluntarily shares information with the FBI about "Peaceful Fraternal Organizations" in absence of legal processes shall be fined..."

Besides that, California has no jurisdiction over immigration because it's a State, and no jurisdiction over I-9 forms because they're federal, not state, forms on a subject on which the state has no powers to begin with.

The Income Tax is voluntary compliance, you fill out the forms and send the money on your own volition. What if a state said "You can't voluntarily cooperate with the IRS unless they serve you with a legal process" you literally couldn't pay your taxes.

The Obama Administration took Arizona to court because they passed a law requiring Businesses to issue regular reports to Immigration Authorities regularly or face fines.

And they won in Federal Court, it was a no brainer.

It was the very mirror image of the California Law just passed forbidding voluntarily assistance with Federal Authorities.

I bet the preliminary injunction is issued within the next 90 days. I will write "I told you so" 3x if I'm wrong.
