Gov. Jerry Brown Didn’t Like AG Jeff Sessions ‘Calling Him Out’ in California

Recently, many have questioned what U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions has been doing in his capacity as the head of the Department of Justice. When he visited California on Wednesday, there was no doubt left in anyone’s mind that Sessions was coming after California’s “sanctuary city” laws following the filing of a federal lawsuit. And, Governor Jerry Brown was furious.

Sessions attended an annual state law enforcement event in Sacramento which was held on the “turf” of California’s “Moonbeam” Governor Brown.

Sessions gave a speech in which he set forth his intentions toward the Golden State.

After Sessions’ speech, Brown lambasted Sessions during a press conference.

Sessions made it clear that he was suing California for its continued defiance of federal immigration laws by enacting three state laws that Sessions believes violates the Supremacy clause of the U.S. Constitution, which grants the power to the federal government over states’ rights when it comes to issues involving immigration.

Those three laws include “one that strictly limits law enforcement cooperation with ICE, one restricting what employers can do when ICE engages in workplace raids, and one about reviews of immigration detention facilities.”

Sessions explained that California’s laws were getting in the way of federal agents doing their jobs under the authority given to them by Congress.

Sessions said:

“Federal agents must be able to do that job that Congress has directed them to do. We’re not asking California or Oakland to effectively enforce immigration laws … although we’d certainly like that. They’re not backing down, not going to be deterred and we’re not going to stop enforcing the law.”

He also didn’t hold back when it came to telling Mayor Libby Schaaf just what he thought about her tipping off illegal immigrants in Oakland recently concerning an impending Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid.

Sessions stated:

“So here’s my message for Mayor Schaaf: How dare you. How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical open borders agenda.

While Sessions was speaking, Schaaf made a feeble attempt to justify possibly disobeying federal law by posting the following tweet: “Now is good time to remind our community Oakland’s violent crime rate has dropped dramatically in the last five years. Read more facts below.

Violent crimes may have gone down but what about incidences of potential crimes committed by California state leaders, Mayor Schaaf?

Later in the day, Schaaf borrowed Sessions’ words he said about her actions, “How dare you” and fired off the following response:

In addition, Sessions called Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s  “bragging about the obstruction of law enforcement” an “embarrassment for the great state of California.”

Brown couldn’t wait to strike back at Sessions who had the “audacity” to come to California and tell Brown how to run his state. (Not yours, Jerry! It belongs to the citizens of California.)

Almost everything Brown said was directly from the liberal Left’s playbook which encourages its members to use the same rhetoric when bashing the Trump administration.

Brown’s series of tweets following his speech sums up what he said: “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!!!”

He also said: “This is a time to build bridges, not walls; to pull Americans together, not set us apart.”

Brown also brought up Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and indicated that there have been “pleas of guilty to lying by countless individuals, colleagues” of President Donald Trump, said Sessions was acting “more like Fox News” and called Sessions a liar.

Brown definitely welcomes the fight and boasts that the federal lawsuit will last longer than the Trump administration.

All I can say is thank goodness for term limits. This is Brown’s last term.

Hopefully, he’ll move to France to further pursue his climate change infatuation full-time when he leaves office.

California would be better for it!
