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.
California Attorney General Is Filing The Most Ridiculous Lawsuit Against The Trump Admin
California’s Attorney General, Xavier Becerra, claimed on Twitter the decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census is “illegal.”
Apparently, being an illegal immigrant is totally legal, but asking a citizenship question on a census is now illegal.
On Monday, Becerra tweeted about the lawsuit, stating “#BREAKING: Filing suit against @realdonaldtrump’s Administration over decision to add #citizenship question on #2020Census. Including the question is not just a bad idea — it is illegal”

Maybe, just maybe, the California Attorney General should worry about taking care of things that actually matter like California’s homeless population…
It’s getting heated in California and their defense of illegal immigrants. This is just another example of the Democrats looking to protect illegal immigrants in every way, shape or form possible.
Earlier this month, Oakland Democrat Mayor Libby Schaaf tipped off illegal immigrants in her city that an ICE raid was coming, thus allowing dangerous illegals to escape.
California continues its stance of refusing to comply with federal immigration authorities.
