Jeff Sessions comes to Sacramento with a warning, and tensions explode

Tensions between California and Washington went from hot to blistering Wednesday as U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions delivered a speech condemning the state’s sanctuary laws his department is challenging in court — and Gov. Jerry Brown countered that it was “a publicity stunt” filled with lies.

“This is basically going to war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy,” Brown said.

In a move Brown called “unprecedented,” Sessions traveled to California to deliver news of the first major strike by the Trump administration against the state’s “resistance” movement: a federal suit to block three new immigration laws from taking effect. The former senator from Alabama invoked the Civil War and reminded California that “there is no secession” as he blasted new immigration laws aimed at thwarting President Donald Trump’s immigration agenda.
