Jerry Brown nukes Sessions’ anti-immigration California speech: Sounds ‘more like Fox News’ than an attorney general

Published

on

California Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday unloaded on Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ speech attacking California for its policies on cooperating with federal immigration officials.

 “This is a political stunt,” Brown said of Sessions’ lawsuit against California for allowing so-called “sanctuary cities” in which local law enforcement officials are not required to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement in rounding up undocumented immigrants. “This is basically going to war against the state of California — the engine of the america economy. It’s not wise, it’s not right, and it will not stand.”

Brown went on to say that Sessions’ lawsuit is more designed to appeal to President Donald Trump’s base than accomplish any good — and he said that Sessions sounded “more like Fox News” than an actual attorney general.

“I do think this is pure red meat for the base,” Brown said. “I would assume, but this is pure speculation, that Jeff thinks Donald will be happy with him and I’m sure Donald will be tweeting his joy.”
