Over a dozen states join Trump’s lawsuit against “Sanctuary State” California

Legal Insurrection: Earlier this month, we noted that California faced a lawsuit from the Department of Justice over its new status as a “Sanctuary State“.
 Several red and purple states have now boarded this particular “Trump Train”.

Texas and more than a dozen other states led by Republican governors got behind the Trump administration on Monday in its lawsuit over California’s so-called sanctuary laws that protect people in the U.S. illegally.

California’s laws are designed to interfere with or block federal immigration enforcement but the state does not have that authority, the other states said in a court filing in the U.S. Department of Justice’s lawsuit against California. The filing in federal court in Sacramento supports the Justice Department’s attempt to block the laws.

The states who have filed currently are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, and West Virginia. The filings argue that California’s laws should be blocked on the same grounds that the SCOTUS struck down Arizona’s 2010 immigration lawREAD MORE

  1. you know who is getting rich off all this litigation ?

    lawyers !

    lawyers write the law

    lawyers argue the law

    in front of lawyer judges

    there is a lot of “law” going around here.

    not sure what that means but I don’t think it’s too good.

  2. While they’re at it, shut off Big Fed to CA or at least the Sanctuary Cities. Nuthin gets attention like the sudden lack of funding and I’m good and fking tired of having my hard-earned tax dollars funding this shit!!

  3. I’d hope they’d put CA out of business (split it up into 3 conservative states & 1 libtard state), but then… CA’s been running on borrowed money, and borrowed TIME, for a couple of decades now… 😳

  4. I hope the court Garry Gary Brown an oversized suppository at the end of this trial.
    Follow the instructions and shove as hard asyou can!

  5. Title 8, US Code 1324(a) Offenses. Harboring — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.

  6. So how come my wonderful state of Illinois is not part of this group???

    That reminds me, I didn’t take my morning crap this AM. I’ll be back after I finish the paperwork…

  7. Every state in the union can thank CA, AZ and TX for their illegals. I don’t think there are many coming in across the Canadian border.

    I think you are new to Cal. Take it from and 11 th generation Cali the Browns ar our Kennedys. Pat was the most corrupt man in Cal for over 100 years. Nothing! Only Jesse Unruh was close; again nothin!
    As the lawyer from Teen says referring to the Bush Clan, “Laws are for little people!”! No Brown worries about the “law”.

  9. BFH, you made a mistake in your lead-in for this article
    “Texas and several other lessor states joined in a lawsuit….”

    Fixed it for you
