Judge holds two Calif. Sanctuary laws, third parties

Federal judge rules that the Trump manage to block two state laws illegal immigrants.

A Federal judge stopped the enforcement of a “disturbing” California law on the protection of the illegal immigrants on Thursday, when he allowed two more so-called “sanctuary state” provisions, the books remain for now.

The mixed verdict from District Court Judge John Mendez was largely a victory for the Democrats in the far left booth, where Gov. Jerry Brown has accused the trump card of the administration, the “war”, of the filing of the lawsuit that led to Thursday’s decision.

Mendez, an appointee of President George W. Bush, agreed with trump administration, a California permit to enforce a law prohibiting employers to the immigration officials on their premises, unless the officials have a search warrant.

Calling the provision a “disturbing” restraint, which places the employer in a “precarious situation,” Mendez said, the state had passed his authority by “impermissibly discriminat[ing] against those dealing with” public authorities.

The Supremacy clause preclude California active Federal foreigners to disrupt authority, and Mendez, said on-the-job provision crossed the line.

But Mendez refused to block a law that the government make prisons where immigrants are held, and other, which prevents the local police from providing release dates and personal information about the prison inmates.

These laws, Mendez said, is not an active obstacle to the Federal officials to rise to the level of being, even if you specified the state is the lack of willingness to voluntarily co-operate with you.

In a statement, Department of Justice, spokesman Devin O’malley disagreed with this assessment.

To hinder “the California of the political leadership is clearly determined by the Federal immigration office in your state,” O’malley said, even as he is also called, the judge prevented the limited injunction “a great victory for private employers in California that are in the process of cooperation with the legitimate enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws.”

O’malley added: “While we are disappointed that the California’s other laws for the protection of criminal aliens were not stopped, the Ministry of justice will continue to seek and to fight against unjust policies that threaten the public safety.”

“This is basically a war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy.”

The US government sued the state in March as part of a wider efforts to crack down on sanctuary countries.

Thursday’s decision came on a request by the administration for a preliminary injunction to immediately stop enforcement of all three sanctuary state laws. There is still no final decision on the legality of the California laws, but that the two laws remain, Mendez indicated that he is obliged, ultimately, to comply with them.

Several city councils have voted to join, the Trump-government lawsuit against the state, or the struggle of the state policy in other ways.

In may, President Trump those of the local governments to fight back against their own state. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has Democrats in California are accused of pursuing a “radical, open-borders agenda.”

“Each of you has the courage to withstand California were fatal and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws,” Trump said in a White house roundtable of local officials on the Problem. “You have a lot of part, too, although it’s become quite popular, what do you do.”

But California had asked Mendez to the administration to dismiss the lawsuit, Governor Brown has called reckless.

“This is basically a war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy. It’s not clever, it is true, and it will not stand,” said Brown earlier this year after the administrative action.


The lawsuit hinged on arguments that the to regulate the U.S. Constitution gives the Federal government an outstanding performance on immigration, and that California can’t enforce hinder immigration.

Mendez said during a hearing in June, he was not convinced that California intends to interfere with federal immigration enforcement.

The three laws, two of which entered into force in January, follow trump promises to ramp up the deportations. The administration has tried to confine itself to help Finance sanctuary’s jurisdiction if they refuse, the Federal agents arresting and deporting immigrants.

California, which was this year the second “sanctuary state” has resisted that move. There are more than 50 lawsuits against the administration, mostly about immigration and environmental decisions, and crack a few significant victories before the court has been filed.
