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.

Nobody can waste more time, money, and resources accomplishing less than Republicans.
States cannot permit sanctuary cities. They are not a different country. I am glad the Feds are suing California.
Strategist saysStates cannot permit sanctuary cities. They are not a different country. I am glad the Feds are suing California.There have been vicious crimes committed by those who would have been deported had it not been for sanctuary cities. This is not acceptable. Governor Brown, you have no right to endanger our families. Is that clear to you? Our safety precedes your ideology. OK?
I guess the big question is how will the federal government force the state government to do the federal governments job.
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.
Libby needs to be thrown into prison to send a message to California politicians who openly break the law.
errc saysNobody can waste more time, money, and resources accomplishing less than Republicans.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.
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.
There are states that don't allow any employee records to be released to any law enforcement agency without a warrant. Where is the outrage about that obstructing of law enforcement?
Oh So Love going out and seeing Bikers, Aryan Brotherhood, Skinheads, followers of Richard Spence, Methheads, druggies of every description, wannabes etc. in the locker room and on the streets covered with gang tats and knife/bullet scars. It makes me feel that my government is doing all it can to protect my safety..Hanging around the Aryan Brotherhood are we ? Or just your run of the mill Bikers - chapters all over the country and they come in multiple colors, ethnicities etc. but predominately white so you won't ever have to feel left out - isn't that swell ? Funny the AG isn't going after these groups
Which law is that? Freedom of speech?
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.
5lbsbrowntrout saysWhich law is that? Freedom of speech?Sedition.
Or just your run of the mill Bikers - chapters all over the country and they come in multiple colors, ethnicities etc. but predominately white so you won't ever have to feel left out - isn't that swell ?
I see so we should waste money on a lawsuit that won't be won?
What right is that? Where is that right established?
Bob, think about your position. You are saying a State Government can compel people through fines NOT to cooperate with the Federal Government.
