Trump administration sues California over laws protecting immigrants
The Trump administration, seeking to force a defiant California to cooperate with its agenda of stepped-up immigrant deportations, went to federal court Tuesday to invalidate three state laws — the administration’s most direct challenge yet to the state’s policies.
Administration officials say the three laws in question, all passed by the Legislature last year, blatantly obstruct federal immigration law and thus violate the Constitution’s supremacy clause, which gives federal law precedence over state enactments.
“The Department of Justice and the Trump administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies that are imposed on you,” Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions plans to tell a meeting of the California Peace Officers Assn. in Sacramento on Wednesday, according to excerpts of his remarks released by the Justice Department.
“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.” 
Trump and Jeff Sessions together sued the government of California for its Sanctuary City policy. This was quickly followed by a collective loss of sphincter control by Jerry Brown and other CA politicians.
Kamala Harris who is preparing to run for president made sure she showed the people exactly whose side she is on.
“California is powerless to enact its own legislative scheme to regulate immigration. It is likewise powerless to enact its own legislative scheme to regulate alien access to public benefits“
Read this very carefully
- In 1994 California had approximately 1.3 million illegal immigrants of which approximately 300000 were children.
- In 2014 that number is estimated at between 2.35 to 2.65 million. 6% of the state’s population is estimated to be illegal immigrants. In comparison to the National number of approximately 11 million this is almost 1/4 of the national population.
The whole basis of proposition 187 being rejected was that the judge decreed the state could not impose its own immigration laws.
