Trump-regimen går i krig mot Kalifornien

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf responds to AG Jeff Sessions with her own ‘How dare you?’

Många tror att de amerikanska delstaterna är självstyrande, men så är inte fallet. Trump-regimen har sina egna agenter i alla delstater som tar order från centralregeringen, som nu gör allt för att arrestera och utvisa så många papperslösa som möjligt. Och när Oaklands borgmästare varnade för kommande räder mot stadens papperslösa så gick Trumpregimen i taket.

Former U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag has offered to represent Libby Schaaf pro-bono if the U.S. Department of Justice presses charges against the Oakland mayor, Schaaf said Wednesday.

The question of criminal charges against the mayor remains open. The White House said last week that the Justice Department is reviewing Schaaf’s decision to issue a warning to the community ahead of a federal immigration operations that resulted in more than 200 arrests. But in his speech Wednesday in Sacramento, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions did not say a word about his department’s review of Schaaf’s actions.

Instead, he lashed out at the mayor, accusing her promoting “a racial open borders agenda” and putting agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement in danger by alerting “criminals” in advance.

Om Trump skulle beordra sina federala agenter att arrestera Oaklands borgmästare så skulle USA stå inför en allvarlig konstitutionell kris. Och det är sju år kvar av helvetesregimen i Washington.
