'A Radical Ideology That's Contrary to American Law': Sessions Vows to Oppose Sanctuary Policies
Attorney General Jeff Sessions appeared on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Friday to weigh in on the sanctuary city battle.
The Justice Department last week filed a lawsuit against California, claiming three recently passed state laws are deliberately interfering with the enforcement of federal immigration law.
"We're going to use every lawful tool we have to push back against this activity. You can be sure of that," Sessions said. "I totally believe that this policy that they're defending in California is unwise and -- in many places -- clearly illegal."
He called out the California lawmakers who support "radical" and "unacceptable" sanctuary policies, particularly Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf (D), who recently warned her community of impending ICE raids.
"This is a radical ideology that's contrary to the American law. The supreme law of the land is American immigration law. And it must be enforced or else we'll just have open borders. And that cannot be," Sessions said.
