California has routinely scoffed at the Trump Administration's crackdown on Sanctuary Cities. The latest and most egregious example is Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who tipped off Illegal Immigrants - many of whom had criminal records - of an impending ICE raid.
Sessions had especially harsh words for Schaaf while speaking at a California Peace Officers Association Meeting: “How dare you? How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of law enforcement just to promote your radical open borders agenda?”
Sessions also announced that the Justice Department has field a lawsuit that is aimed at California laws preventing Police to ask Immigration status, and prevents them from participating in ICE operations.
"Governor Moonbeam" was predictably upset:
At a time of unprecedented political turmoil, Jeff Sessions has come to California to further divide and polarize America. Jeff, these political stunts may be the norm in Washington, but they don’t work here. SAD!!!— Jerry Brown (@JerryBrownGov) March 7, 2018
KCRA in Sacramento has more.
