According to The Daily Wire through the LA Times, this latest move by far-left California comes after the Trump administration filed a lawsuit against California earlier this month over the state’s defiant and unconstitutional stance on protecting law-violating illegal aliens from federal immigration authorities. The LA Times reports:

The Trump administration, seeking to force a defiant California to cooperate with its agenda of stepped-up immigrant deportations, went to federal court Tuesday to invalidate three state laws — the administration’s most direct challenge yet to the state’s policies.

Administration officials say the three laws in question, all passed by the Legislature last year, blatantly obstruct federal immigration law and thus violate the Constitution’s supremacy clause, which gives federal law precedence over state enactments.
