About damn time. The US Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit in federal court in Sacramento to stop California’s obstruction of enforcing existing immigration laws.
From an article by Politico–
The litigation is modeled on a suit the Obama administration filed in 2010 against a controversial state law in Arizona that sought to crack down on illegal immigrants, SB 1070. That case resulted in a Supreme Court ruling that found that some provisions of the Arizona law unconstitutionally intruded into Congress’ right to set federal immigration policy.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is traveling to California to tout the new lawsuit Wednesday morning in a speech to law enforcement officials in Sacramento.
“The Department of Justice and the Trump administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair and unconstitutional policies that have been imposed on you,” Sessions plans to tell the California Peace Officers Association meeting, according to excerpts of his planned remarks. “We are fighting to make your jobs safer and to help you reduce crime in America. And I believe we are going to win.”
This is coming a week after the crazy liberal mayor of Oakland let illegals know about a raid by federal law enforcement (story linked here). Her ridiculous actions endangered law enforcement officers and allowed criminals to escape.
The law is the law is the law. Those who break it must except the consequences. Glad to see we now have a Justice Department willing to enforce existing law.
