U.S. lawsuit over California immigration laws is warning shot

U.S. lawsuit over California immigration laws is warning shot

Williams, a freshman lawmaker from Colorado Springs, has elevated the treatment Denver, Aurora and Boulder have extended to undocumented immigrants into equivalence with the national positions favored by President Trump.

"Sanctuary cities" are illegal in IN which also means that any town, city, or county in IN must fully cooperate with ICE officers.

The Trump administration's lawsuit challenging California is the latest warning shot at communities nationwide that are attempting to provide protections for immigrants facing the threat of deportation.

Trump administration officials have promised to crack down on policies that keep local law enforcement from advising federal agents when they release immigrants living in the country illegally. Williams was allowed to bring friends - at their own expense - to the meeting Thursday with the White House Domestic Policy Council. Kevin Van Winkle of Highlands Ranch, Tim Leonard of Evergreen and Steve Humphrey of Severance.

A Colorado lawmaker says White House advisers are receptive to his idea to hold accountable public officials in cities that limit cooperation with federal immigration officials.

"Attorney General Jeff Sessions said ICE isn't asking state and local enforcement to round up all illegal immigrants - all federal immigration authorities want is for Becerra and other officials to stop actively obstructing the enforcement of federal laws". U.S Attorney General Jeff Sessions says the laws hinder the ability of federal immigration enforcement officers to do their jobs. That bill went nowhere.

It wasn't clear if lawmakers from other states were attending the meeting.

The Justice Department filed a lawsuit against the state of California Tuesday "to save lives and keep risky criminal aliens off our streets", according to the White House.
