Trump administration lawsuits vs. California send a message to the rest of America
The first challenge involved sanctuary cities and made sense as a reaction to escalating conflict, according to Gerson and Arthur Rizer, a former attorney in the Justice Department for about 10 years and currently working for libertarian think tank R Street Institute. That case is pending in the California Eastern District Court.
Rizer called Sessions’ statement “astonishing.”
“If you look at every major talking point on the GOP platform – immigration, the opioid epidemic, it even says radical Islamic extremists over just terrorists generally – every major political buzzword is in there,” said Rizer. “It looks like a campaign statement.”
