Attorney General Jeff Sessions to Visit Sacramento, Make 'Major Sanctuary Jurisdiction Announcement'

California officials remained characteristically defiant, vowing to defend their landmark legislation.

The US justice department is suing the state of California, alleging it is interfering with the enforcement of immigration laws, one week after the federal government escalated the feud by arresting more than 230 people in the state.

The lawsuit seeks to stymie the state's immigration laws, including Senate Bill 54 and Assembly Bill 450.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is expected to make what is being called a major announcement on "sanctuary jurisdiction" during a speech in Sacramento on Wednesday. Just last week, a top administration official accused the mayor of Oakland, one of California's largest cities, of sabotaging a federal raid targeting undocumented immigrants after she issued a public warning about the enforcement action.

Schaaf issued a statement Tuesday night saying "we will continue to inform all residents about their Constitutional rights, and we will continue to support California's sanctuary status".

Jerry Brown mimicking President Trump on Twitter as he criticized Sessions for coming to Sacramento "to further divide and polarize America". Jeff, these political stunts may be the norm in Washington, but they don't work here. SAD!

Employers are mandated under the law to demand ICE agents present a warrant or subpoena before entering certain areas of the premises, or when accessing some employee records. Another stops local governments from contracting with for-profit companies and ICE to hold immigrants.

The Justice Department has threatened to deny millions of dollars in federal grant money to communities that refuse to comply with a statute requiring information-sharing with federal law enforcement.

One of those laws offers additional worker protections against federal immigration enforcement actions.

Well, a new report from the Wall Street Journal throws cold water on the idea that Trump was not a party to the transaction. It isn't clear when First Republic reported it to the government as suspicious. "And I'd refer you to Michael".

The lawsuit says three state laws intentionally undermine federal immigration law.

California has often taken steps against the Trump Administration's efforts to enforce federal compliance with immigration policies. Gov. "We were informed he was going to be in town, so we invited him to speak".

To make its case, the DOJ is in part pointing to a ruling on a very different state-level immigration law: Arizona's SB 1070, which was meant to expand local police efforts to find and arrest undocumented immigrants.

The California laws were passed in response to Trump's promises to sharply ramp up the deportation of people living in the US illegally.

The groups' members have often been split on sanctuary policies.

Although the court is being asked to consider only California, which this year became a "sanctuary state" to some fanfare, the court's decision could have far-reaching consequences for other jurisdictions with similar policies.

Becerra, a Democrat who is up for election in November, has been sharply critical of Republicans Trump and Sessions, particularly on immigration policies.

Originally, U.S. Attorney McGregor Scott had been scheduled to speak Wednesday, Leveroni said, but he got bumped by Sessions.
