Attorney General Jeff Sessions publicly lambasted the state of California's seemingly seditious governance for their inability to cooperate with federal agents to remove federal criminal illegal aliens from the United States of America, and a new Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit hopes to reverse the course of SB 54, the bill which Governor Jerry Brown signed into law that puts federal fugitives before American citizens.
California has continued to defy federal immigration laws on the books, and with their controversial "Sanctuary State" law, it has forbidden local law enforcement agencies inside the Golden State from working with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agents, not only to remove federal criminal illegal aliens from the state but to share intelligence in any way that could save American lives.
To make matters worse, several politicians inside the state of California have gone as far as<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/19565-ICE-Declares-War-on-Sanctuary-Madness-Massive-Raids-in-California"> tipping off illegal aliens </a>that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Agents were performing operations inside the state to round of the most dangerous of the previously convicted criminal illegal aliens, a move that not only endangered the lives of the ICE Agents involved in the sweep, but directly interfered in a criminal investigation by federal authorities.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions' new Department of Justice lawsuit says that California is "radical," and intends to prevent the state from continuing to defy federal immigration laws.
The outcome of this lawsuit could be monumental in terms of deciding what other states will be able to do in the future.
"We wanted a healthy and good relationship with [California], but federal law determines immigration policy," he said. "The state of California is not entitled to block that activity. Somebody needs to stand up and say no, you've gone too far, you cannot do this, this is not reasonable. It's radical, really."
California's maneuvering against ICE puts citizens at risks, with the overwhelming majority of deportations from ICE being criminals who've previously been convicted of dangerous felony crimes.
"People have tried to spin this as somehow we're demanding that state and local officials go out and do the work of the federal government," Sessions said. "We just cannot allow them to obstruct or block" federal officers, according to Jeff Sessions.
"Why do we have ICE officers?" Sessions asked. "Are they just going to sit in their offices and do nothing?"
Defending all ICE raids, Sessions encouraged the people of California to contact ICE if they suspect a dangerous criminal illegal alien being in their midst. He also went on to defend President Trump's policies.
"I think President Trump moves the ball. He can get things done that I'm not sure any other person in America could get done," he said.
Governor Jerry Brown and California is "not entitled" to block Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids by ICE or Homeland Security Investigations said Sessions. He also said California's stance is reflective of "open borders," which is not what the United States of America has as federal law.
The majority of American citizens have called for charges to be brought against Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who has become a threat to the American people, and the citizens of California, by personally tipping off the illegal aliens that ICE Agents were performing the widespread sweeps through the region.
Libby Schaaf issued a statement, saying, "Earlier today, I learned from multiple credible sources that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is preparing to conduct an operation in the Bay Area, including Oakland, starting as soon as within the next 24 hours.As Mayor of Oakland, I am sharing this information publicly not to panic our residents but to protect them."
This defiance has many GOP pundits calling for the arrest of Mayor Schaaf, who by tipping off the illegal criminals not only compromised the efforts of ICE to arrest the nearly 1,000 targets they'd intended to bring to justice, but also endangered the lives of the ICE Agents who were involved in the operation.
ICE Deputy Director Thomas D. Homan stated that he believed 864 illegal aliens who are still in the crosshairs of ICE's ERO team "were able to elude our thanks to the mayor's irresponsible decision."
"Sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco and Oakland shield dangerous criminal aliens from federal law enforcement at the expense of public safety," Director Homan said."The Oakland mayor's decision to publicize her suspicions about ICE operations further increased risks for my officers and alerted criminal aliens, making clear that this reckless decision was based on her political agenda with the very federal laws that ICE is sworn to uphold."
Homan has previously told the State of California's Governor Jerry Brown that<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/9275-ICE-Director-Says-to-California-after-Sanctuary-State-Law-We-re-Coming-Anyway"> "ICE is coming anyway," </a>in response to the SB 54 "Sanctuary State" bill being signed into law.
ICE is here to stay, and the illegal aliens, especially the previously convicted criminals, have to go back to where they came from.
