First Time Ever: Trump, Sessions Declare War on ‘Unconstitutional’ California


Enough is enough.

California is effectively in open rebellion against the federal government, and President Trump is finished playing nice.

For the first time in our nation’s history, Attorney General Jeff Sessions will file a lawsuit against a state for implementing “unconstitutional” laws.

Via Breitbart:

Relying on both federal statutes and the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, DOJ will ask the U.S. District Court for the District of Eastern California to issue a preliminary injunction blocking the enforcement of these laws intended to protect illegal aliens by preventing cooperation with federal immigration enforcement. DOJ will also seek declaratory judgement that these laws are unconstitutional – “preempted” by federal immigration law.

Sessions himself was scheduled to speak before California police officers in Sacramento on Wednesday.

His prepared remarks to them regarding California’s “sanctuary” laws included:

“The Department of Justice and the Trump administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies that have been imposed on you. We are fighting to make your jobs safer and to help you reduce crime in America. And I believe that we are going to win.”
