SACRAMENTO (Reuters) - California Governor Jerry Brown on Wednesday accused President Donald Trumps administration of declaring war on the most populous U.S. state, after the Justice Department sued to stop policies that protect illegal immigrants against deportation.
The Democratic governor made the charge shortly after Attorney General Jeff Sessions intensified the Republican administrations confrontation with California. In a speech in the state capital, Sessions accused California of obstructing federal immigration enforcement efforts and vowed to stop the states defiance.
Sessions addressed a law enforcement group in Sacramento, a day after the Justice Department filed suit against California, Brown and the states Democratic attorney general over so-called sanctuary policies that shield illegal immigrants.
California absolutely, it appears to me, is using every power it has - powers it doesnt have - to frustrate federal law enforcement. So you can be sure Im going to use every power I have to stop them, Sessions, the top U.S law enforcement officer, said in his speech.
Brown called the attorney generals trip to California a political stunt and his description of Californias laws a lie.
Like so many in the Trump administration, this attorney general has no regard for the truth, Brown told reporters, adding that the laws were crafted with input and support from California police chiefs. This is basically going to war against the state of California.

Either secede from the U.S. or uphold its laws. California has chosen to do neither, so it has declared war on the U.S.
In other good news -
Yes, Brown-stain, it’s war.
Uh yeah, they can do whatever they hell they damn well please, but if he responds, HE’S waging war on THEM....[eyeroll]
Another example of how insane and corrupt the RATS are. Someone should remind MOONBEAM that police chiefs do not generate legislation. Choke on it MOONBEAM.
Whatcha gonna do when they come for you??? BAD BOYS!!!
Sessions and Trump sue the state of Califonia to obey US law, Governor Moonbeam instantly loses control of his sphincter.
Clean up in the Governor’s Office!
California is in an active state of rebellion against the federal government.
But instead, rather than talk of war, let them secede peacefully.
As long as the parts of California that don't want to secede can secede back.
Not enough, apparently. Not till JimRob has beachfront in Fresno.
Crucify California and make an example out of them. Trump has nothing to lose there.
Get your troops together and attack a Federal fort, Mr. Brown! :)
Brown has been sucking off the political teat long enough to know that immigration and national security are federal matters ....
Brown’s kind of political pandering/posturing is not doing California or America any good
And half the shoreline miles should remain.
Well, you fired the first shot, Gov!
Jerry Brown loves this. His whole life was made for this moment. Jeff Sessions to old and to slow. Jeff you waisted the good part of a year on nothing. Jerry Brown is going to eat Sessions lunch.
Has Moonbeam lost his mind? Does he know this was tried before? Is he ready for a war with the federals?
Is Jeff Sessions ready for a war with California?
are tanks rolling into California cities? Are bombs falling on California cities? are soldiers occupying California cities? No, No, and No. So STFU Brown.
