By suing them in court from breaking federal law, Governor Jerry Brown thinks the DOJ is initiating civil war.
It seems that, to Jerry Brown, a federal lawsuit for breaking federal law is an unprovoked act of aggression on the part of the Trump administration.
How does that make any sense?
But more importantly, why is Jerry Brown showing such concern for illegal aliens? He acts like they’re his constituency, a part of the Democratic coalition.
This is more evidence that Brown is relying on these people as future voters—assuming they’re not voting already.
The Sacramento Bee reports, “Trump ‘basically going to war’ with California, Jerry Brown says.
Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday slammed U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions for “initiating a reign of terror” against immigrants in California.
Sessions on Tuesday filed suit against the state over three new laws, passed last year to protect immigrants living in California illegally, that he argues violate the supremacy clause of the U.S. Constitution and interfere with federal immigration enforcement.
“This is basically going to war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy,” Brown said. “It’s not wise, it’s not right and it will not stand.”
Brown and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra held a press conference at the Capitol to defend the laws following a speech by Sessions to a law enforcement conference in downtown Sacramento on Wednesday morning. In the speech, which Brown dismissed as a “political stunt,” Sessions accused California officials of creating an open borders system and trying to secede from the United States.
“It’s about dividing America,” Brown said, adding that Sessions was acting more like Fox News than the country’s top law enforcement official.
