Someone is finally standing up to the state of California. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is headed to the infamous state to finally instill some law and order after filing suit on Tuesday.
According to POLITICO, Sessions pushed back ferociously after the state rejected Trump’s immigration plans and for “trying to undermine federal law by embracing the ‘radical, irrational idea’ of “open borders.’”
Sessions spoke to a room filled with hundreds of law enforcement officials from the California Peace Officers Associaton in Sacramento vowing to enact federal law.
“California, we have a problem,” he said.
“A series of actions and events has occurred that directly and adversely impact the work of our federal officers.”
“There is no nullification. There is no secession,” he continued. “Open borders is a radical, irrational idea that cannot be accepted.”
The suit will target three sanctuary city laws the California Legislature passed in response to President Donald Trump’s declaration to crack down on illegal immigration and restore power to law enforcement.
Residents are fleeing the state for a better quality of life elsewhere and it was just ranked dead last among the 50 states for its quality of life, or lack thereof.

At a time of unprecedented political turmoil, Jeff Sessions has come to California to further divide and polarize America. Jeff, these political stunts may be the norm in Washington, but they don’t work here. SAD!!!

Thank you to Attorney General Jeff Sessions for cracking down on sanctuary cities and criminal illegal aliens.
This is one of the many reasons why we voted for President Trump.#WednesdayWisdom
