AG Jeff Sessions Will Make “Major Sanctuary Jurisdiction Announcement” in Sacramento
Ben Adler of Capital Public Radio reports:
“U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions will make a “major sanctuary jurisdiction announcement” in Sacramento on Wednesday, just blocks from the state Capitol where legislative Democrats and California Gov. Jerry Brown passed a “sanctuary state” law last year.
“The Department of Justice announced Sessions will attend the annual Law Enforcement Legislative Day hosted by the California Peace Officers Association and several other groups. He is scheduled to speak at the Kimpton Sawyer Hotel — the new hotel next to the Golden 1 Center in downtown Sacramento — at 8:05 a.m.
“California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who has been among the most vocal critics of Sessions and President Trump’s immigration enforcement actions and has warned businesses not to cooperate with federal immigration authorities without a warrant, is also scheduled to speak.
“This past weekend, Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg released a video on his Facebook page in response to reports of increased Immigration and Customs Enforcement activity in his city and throughout Northern California. “We will not cower. We will not retreat. We will do everything in our power to stand up for and protect Dreamers, hard-working families, immigrants — people who are just doing their best to work, to learn, and to have a part of the Sacramento and California dream,” Steinberg said.”
