Governor Brown is fuming over lawsuit: Trump admin has declared war on California

DCNFAmber Randall, DCNF

The California governor claimed the Trump administration is trying to “go to war” with the state in light of a Department of Justice lawsuit against the state’s sanctuary city laws.

Gov. Jerry Brown slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions Wednesday for filing a lawsuit against California instead of trying to “work things out” with the state’s attorney general.

“But what Americans have done traditionally is that the attorney general would talk to our attorney general and try to work things out. This is basically going to war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy,” Brown said in a press conference.

The DOJ sued California, Brown and state Attorney General Xavier Becerra Tuesday night for using sanctuary city laws to violate federal law.

“Her actions support those who flout that law, and boldly validates illegality. There’s no other way to interpret those remarks. To make matters worse, the lieutenant governor of the state praised her for doing so. Bragging about and encouraging obstruction of our law enforcement, and, the law–I am afraid that this is an embarrassment to the proud state of California,” Sessions said in a Wednesday speech.
