Trump administration sues California for its sanctuary state legislation

Late Tuesday, the US Justice Department (DOJ) sued California, upping the battle between The Trump Administration and state/local governments over the issue of providing sanctuaries from a crackdown on immigration enforcement.

Carol Leveroni, CPOA executive director, said through various law enforcement liaisons her organization learned last week that Sessions planned to come to California to make a Sanctuary jurisdiction speech. And I think we're going to win.

Ms. Schaaf had "boldly supported illegality", Mr. Sessions said, calling her actions "an embarrassment to the proud state of California". She said she did not have specifics about his announcement.

He says his department is simply asking California to allow ICE agents to do their job.

"Here's my message to Mayor Schaaf-how dare you".

Sacramento police say nobody was arrested in connection with the protests Wednesday outside a hotel where Sessions spoke to California law enforcement officials. If immigration enforcement is a concern of the federal government (as this lawsuit repeatedly insists), then it's up to the feds to enforce immigration law, not local police. The third measure bars new contracts for immigration detention centers in the state and gives the attorney general the power to monitor existing centers.

"We look forward to reviewing the facts as they present them to our attorneys".

"I encouraged people to not panic but to know their rights, to know their responsibilities and to know about the unique resources that are available in this community".

Third FIR in PNB scam case
Diamantaire Nirav Modi's flagship company Firestar Diamond moved Delhi High Court against the seizure of his properties. He said, "We told them that this is the basis of our petition that there is no information".

Brown and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra are directly named in the suit - and are ready for the fight. Sessions said at a news conference.

The Trump administration past year announced plans to withhold federal grant money from jurisdictions deemed to refuse cooperation with ICE.

The law enforcement audience listening to Session's remarks was quiet throughout the 25-minute speech, offering polite applause at the end, while a few people rose to their feet at the conclusion.

One prohibits employers from letting immigration agents enter worksites or view employee files without a subpoena or warrant, an effort to prevent workplace raids. Now we have the attorney general doing precisely that.

For over a year, ICE and the Department of Justice have issued warnings to cities that have adopted so-called "sanctuary" policies to protect undocumented immigrants, threatening such repercussions as stepped-up raids and withheld law enforcement grants. The lawsuit aims to block three so-called sanctuary laws the state's legislature passed previous year.

Sessions criticized Mayor Libby Schaaf in a speech Wednesday to law enforcement officials after he sued California over laws that restrict cooperation with USA immigration authorities.

"This is basically going to war against the state of California", Brown said. Jeff, se political stunts may be norm in Washington, but y don't work here. SAD! Colorado, Illinois, New Mexico, Oregon and Vermont have state sanctuary laws, as do more than 300 municipalities across the country.

Mr Leon, a Los Angeles Democrat, wrote the state's bill deeming it a "sanctuary city", which limits the assistance given to federal immigration authorities.
