Sessions slams sanctuary laws in speech to California police officers

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has railed against

In January, it threatened 23 so-called sanctuary jurisdictions, including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, with subpoenas if they fail to provide documents to show whether local law enforcement officers are sharing information with federal immigration authorities.

"How dare you?" Sessions said of Schaaf at a California Peace Officers Association meeting in Sacramento.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump's justice department announced they are suing California over sanctuary city laws.

He singled out Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who last month warned residents of an impending Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid.

The lawsuit that the Department of Justice filed against California Tuesday over state laws protecting immigrants represents Trump's strongest counterpunch so far to the Golden State's resistance against his policies. Attempts to require local law enforcement officials to enforce federal law-something that is most certainly not their job-cost millions of dollars and, by deterring cooperation with police, make it hard to do the day-to-day work of keeping people safe. The lawsuit is the latest salvo in an escalating feud between the Trump administration and California, which has resisted the president on issues from taxes to marijuana policy and defiantly refuses to help federal agents detain and deport immigrants.

If Qualcomm's position is weakened, treasury said, Chinese companies like Huawei Technologies would gain an opening to become dominant.

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.

"California is using every power it has - and some it doesn't - to frustrate federal law enforcement".

"Despite how (De León) has presented the issue, the law enforcement profession, which CPOA represents, can not and does not engage in immigration enforcement". The suit filed in federal court in Sacramento says the laws are unconstitutional and have kept federal agents from doing their jobs. Another stops local governments from contracting with for-profit companies and ICE to hold immigrants. It was carried by state Senate leader Kevin de León, a candidate for U.S. Senate, who has led the anti-Trump resistance in the Legislature.

California Gov. Jerry Brown blasted Sessions' announcement, accusing the administration of trying to "polarize America".

"So here's my message to Mayor Schaaf: How dare you?".

Clifford as part of an effort to avoid her telling the truth , thus helping to ensure he won the Presidential Election". The "hush agreement" used alias names to refer to Trump and Daniels within the agreement, according to the lawsuits.

"This is a reminder that California does not see his federal policies", said Steven Lynn, 33, a Sacramento graduate student. Sessions said it allowed hundreds of "wanted criminals" to avoid arrest. "Her actions support those who flout our laws and boldly validate the illegality. But it would be no different in principle from this new law enacted by California".

The lawsuit is also of note because it is the first to place a state against the Justice Department and the DOJ's ongoing behavior in regards to immigration.

The other two laws restrict private employers' cooperation with immigration officials and require inspections and reviews of immigrant detention facilities in the state.

Dozens of demonstrators have gathered in Sacramento, California, to protest an appearance by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
