Trump DOJ sues California over 'interference' with immigration enforcement
The Trump Justice Department filed a lawsuit Tuesday night against California, saying three recently-passed state laws were deliberately interfering with federal immigration policies.

It marked the latest legal and political confrontation with the nation's most populous state, which the federal government says has repeatedly stood in the way of its plans to step up enforcement actions in the workplace and against criminal aliens.

"The Department of Justice and the Trump Administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies," Attorney General Jeff Sessions was expected to tell California law enforcement officers on Wednesday. "We are fighting to make your jobs safer and to help you reduce crime in America."

RE: Trump DOJ sues California over 'interference' with immigration enforcement
I am not a lawyer, I don't play one on TV and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn last night. So I have to ask why California has to be sued? Could the DOJ not simply arrest those in violation of immigration law? Certainly there must be statutes forbidding the aiding and abetting of illegal immigration or penalties for facilitating their activities. I would think a few meaningful arrests of those refusing to abide by federal law might have a more effective impact than a lawsuit.

They are avoiding 3rd world trappings of those who are engaging in this behavior.

California is making it illegal for a company to perform a check on immigration status for workers. That is against federal law.

The feds can go in there and arrest whoever they want. The issue is that the feds wouldnt have to do that nearly as much if the companies didnt hire illegals.

I understand why you wouldn't want to start arresting public officials, but I would make an exception for the Oakland mayor. She stated she was willing to go to jail to do what she thought was it. That clearly shows that she knowingly and willingly committed a crime. If someone does that they should be arrested. Public officials who are directly involved in how the legislative process works should be held to a standard that excludes usurping that process.

I was insert "private company" into your above statement and yes, that would violate the first amendment. Not sure about the other part of the suit.
