Resource: Attorney General Becerra Sues Trump Administration for Imposing Unlawful New Grant Conditions Targeted at “Sanctuary Jurisdictions”

By: California Attorney General

SAN FRANCISCO – California Attorney General Xavier Becerra today filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration for its unconstitutional attempt to force California law enforcement officials to engage in federal immigration enforcement, rather than allow them to use their discretion to determine how best to keep their communities safe.

Last month, the U.S. Department of Justice placed unlawful and inappropriate immigration enforcement conditions on certain public safety grants for law enforcement. This action jeopardizes critical crime fighting resources and threatens the safety of California residents. More than $28 million in federal funds that California uses for programs supporting law enforcement, recidivism prevention, crime victims and witnesses, and at-risk youth are at issue.
