Trump Administration Sues CA Over Immigration Laws
The U.S. Justice Department has challenged three California laws passed last year on the grounds they obstruct federal immigration policy. The California legislation prohibits businesses from aiding federal agents searching for undocumented workers and local law enforcement from alerting them when detainees are released. Another targeted law created a state inspection program for immigrant detention centers. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ upcoming remarks will call the legislation “unjust, unfair and unconstitutional” while Gov. Jerry Brown said the suit was a “stunt.” White House officials threatened to challenge other states considering similar legislation.
