If there’s one thing President Trump won’t put up with it’s illegal immigration.
California, which prides itself on being a “sanctuary state,” just learned that the hard way.
From Los Angeles Times:
The Trump administration, seeking to force a defiant California to cooperate with its agenda of stepped-up immigrant deportations, went to federal court Tuesday to invalidate three state laws — the administration’s most direct challenge yet to the state’s policies.
Administration officials say the three laws in question, all passed by the Legislature last year, blatantly obstruct federal immigration law and thus violate the Constitution’s supremacy clause, which gives federal law precedence over state enactments.
“The Department of Justice and the Trump administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies that are imposed on you,” Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions plans to tell a meeting of the California Peace Officers Assn. in Sacramento on Wednesday, according to excerpts of his remarks released by the Justice Department.

The lawsuit comes the week after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf sent out an official statement warning illegal aliens that an ICE operation would be conducted in the area. The Democrat’s act not only put the lives of federal agents in danger but also undermined the federal government’s enforcement of the law.
Now the Trump administration is fighting back.
Good on the DOJ!
Illegal immigrants are lawbreakers, criminals.
