The Trump administration is taking aim at the Golden State over three recently passed laws.
The Trump administration is taking action in its efforts to curb illegal immigration, taking aim at the largest so-called sanctuary state in the nation. The Department of Justice is filing suit against California, according to the New York Times.
The lawsuit, expected to be filed sometime late Tuesday in federal court in Sacramento, is over three recently passed California laws that “… make it impossible for federal immigration officials to do their jobs and deport criminals who were born outside of the United States,” according to the NYT report.
The suit names the State of California, Gov. Jerry Brown and state Attorney General Xavier Becerra among the defendants.
Brown on Tuesday evening called the action a “political stunt.”
