California Gov. Jerry Brown on DOJ Lawsuit: “This Is An Act of War” (Video)
It’s funny how when the Arizona Governor Jan Brewer wanted to have people show some form of ID to prove they were in the country legally, Obama went to her state to remind her that the “feds” make immigration law, not the states. Of course, the “open borders” crowd cheered.
Now when the “Feds” show up in California to remind their one-party state the same thing, Jerry Brown pisses and moans about the injustices of it all.
California Gov. Jerry Brown said that the Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit filed against California over recently passed state laws was an “act of war” during a press conference with the California attorney general on Wednesday.
The DOJ filed a lawsuit on Tuesday, which alleged three recently passed California laws deliberately interfered with federal immigration policies.
“You called this an act of war from the federal government,” a reporter began asking Brown.
Brown seemed to be confused by the reporter’s quote.
“An act of war? That’s pretty strong. But I reincorporate that comment,” Brown responded.
The reporter concluded his question by asking whether California would retaliate against the federal government.
“No, we are state of laws,” Brown answered. “We want to observe the law now. The [U.S.] attorney general has basically thrown the gauntlet down and done it in a highly politicized way.”
“Yeah, this is a very aggressive act on the part of the Trump administration, and it’s not right, and it won’t stand. And as I say, I’m sure this lawsuit will last has more longevity than the Trump administration itself,” Brown concluded.
Should they start by with arresting the governor for obstruction of justice?
Sorry, Gov. Brown, but as a 4th-generation native Californian, I fully support Jeff Sessions coming to California. California’s illegal “sanctuary” policies are polarizing and sad.

Seriously Gov. Brown? You and our governor are creating more expense for taxpayers in our states by providing legal fees for illegals. What about those of us that pay for all that with our taxes? You know the ones that were born here and hate what you are doing to our country

Face it, Moonbeam, you’re just trying to set up the “Brown Republic.” In more ways than one. Using illegal methods to ensure a liberal electorate is just as much a “political stunt.” Difference is, Mr Sessions is playing by the rules.
