California leaders respond to Sessions speech, lawsuit

California Gov. Jerry Brown denounced U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions for coming to the state to speak about a lawsuit targeting policies that limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities, saying Wednesday it was unprecedented for him to "act more like Fox News than a law enforcement officer." Shortly after Sessions spoke Wednesday morning in Sacramento to law enforcement officials at a conference, Brown accused Sessions of lying and trying to appease President Donald Trump. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who is up for election in November, said sanctuary policies increase public safety by promoting trust between immigrant communities and law enforcement, while allowing police resources to be used to fight other crimes. "We're in the business of public safety, not deportation," he said.
