Jerry Brown: Trump ‘Going to War’ with California

Let me fix that---- California isn't the only state going to war with
the US Federal Government---
I sometimes enjoy when liberals speak their mind, idiots speaking


Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday slammed U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions for “initiating a reign of terror” against immigrants in California.

Sessions on Tuesday filed suit against the state over three new laws, passed last year to protect immigrants living in California illegally, that he argues violate the supremacy clause of the U.S. Constitution and interfere with federal immigration enforcement.

“This is basically going to war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy,” Brown said. “It’s not wise, it’s not right and it will not stand.”

Brown and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra held a press conference at the Capitol to defend the laws following a speech by Sessions to a law enforcement conference in downtown Sacramento on Wednesday morning. In the speech, which Brown dismissed as a “political stunt,” Sessions accused California officials of creating an open borders system and trying to secede from the United States.

“It’s about dividing America,” Brown said, adding that Sessions was acting more like Fox News than the country’s top law enforcement official. “I call upon him to apologize to the people of California for bringing the mendacity of Washington to California and trying to insert discord and division, and I might add dysfunctionality, in a state that’s really working.”

Brown suggested that, given reports of President Donald Trump’s unhappiness with the attorney general since he recused himself from an investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Sessions might simply be trying to keep his job.

Senate Bill 54, Assembly Bill 103 and Assembly Bill 450 — the three laws that Sessions sued over — restrict California law enforcement officials from cooperating on federal immigration actions, limit the ability of local jails to contract with the federal government to house immigrant detainees, and require employers to ask for a warrant before allowing immigration authorities to conduct a workplace raid.

Commonly known as the “sanctuary state” law, SB 54 has been by far the most controversial. In its lawsuit, the federal government argued that it forces the release of immigrants who have already shown a willingness to engage in criminal activity.

Becerra defended the law under the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which he said gives California the right to decline to participate in civil immigration enforcement. He said Trump’s threats to pull grants from local police agencies over SB 54 amounted to “coercion.”

“Here in California, we respect the law and the Constitution. We expect the federal government to do the same,” Becerra said at the press conference. “California is in the business of public safety. We’re not in the business of deportations.”

NRA or 2nd Amendment never killed anyone.

Original Post

California is the old South, reborn, in many ways. LA and the Bay area are developing into open cesspools, with tens of thousands of homeless.

The pre-Civil War south had homes and plantations of extraordinary wealth and opulence.  Slave labor supported such.  Slaves depressed the wages of free persons of all colors.  There were large numbers of poor and a small middle class that catered to the wealthy planters.  Cotton exchanges made a small business class wealthy acting as factors selling to northern and British mills.  Southern governors set their states on a path of opposition to the federal government to protect the wealthy planter class and factors. 

California has portions that are wealthy surrounded by the homeless and those barely able to survive the cost of living in the state.  IT provides much of the wealth in Silicon Valley and the Bay area.  The IT companies use underpaid labor in their companies and illegals to keep up their extensive manor houses.  Similarly, the fruit orchards and vineyards use illegals to pick and process their produce.  Hollywood utilizes similar in their industry, coupled with sex perversion.  

California politicians from the governor to the mayors protect their illegal labor force in much the same way southern governors protected the slave trade.  Even down to laws that attempt to obviate federal law.  IOW, Demmies operating in the same method they've done for over 150 years. 

Governor Moonbeam is channeling Jeff Davis.  That, didn't turn out well for Jeff.
