Sessions' appearance at California's capital comes less than two weeks after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf warned residents of an imminent raid by federal immigration agents, a move harshly criticized by ICE.

However, the Justice Department is now turning the tables on obstructionist Democrats in the Golden State by basing its own lawsuit off a 2012 Supreme Court case filed by the Obama administration. She says she did nothing illegal.

Federal agents have netted more than 230 undocumented immigrants in recent raids from Sacramento to the Bay Area according to ICE.

"Here's my message to Mayor Schaaf: How dare you?" "California absolutely appears to me to be using every power it has, and powers it doesn't have, to frustrate federal law enforcement", Sessions told the gathering.

"We look forward to reviewing the facts as they present them to our attorneys".

During Sessions' speech, Schaaf posted a tweet touting Oakland's violent crime rate, saying it has dropped over the last five years.

California Governor Edmund G. Brown and Attorney General Xavier Becerra, both named defendants in the lawsuit, sharply condemned it as a meritless. "We expect the federal government to do the same", Becerra said at the press conference.

"If they voluntarily start giving up information about their employees or access to their employees in ways that contradict our new California laws they subject themselves to actions by my office".

Sessions is expected to speak at 8:05 a.m.at a downtown Sacramento hotel.

In an open challenge to President Donald Trump's determined push to halt illegal immigration and expel potentially millions of people who came to the United States without papers, last October Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation making all of California a "sanctuary state". Only the California State Sheriffs' Association actively opposed the so-called sanctuary law.

Gov. Jerry Brown has staunchly defended Senate Bill 54, which would extend certain protections for immigrants statewide, as being well within California's rights. "We are doing nothing to intrude on the work of federal government to do immigration enforcement".

Wouldn't it be nice if Jeff Sessions wanted to invoke "federal law precedence", over all the states' failing gun controls in order to halt the unrestricted sale of automatic weapons to just about anybody who wants them? Jeff, these political stunts may be the norm in Washington, but they don't work here. Colorado, Illinois, New Mexico, Oregon and Vermont have state sanctuary laws, as do more than 300 municipalities across the country. Orrick rejected a request from the state to place a court-ordered stop to federal policies aimed at punishing sanctuary cities and states, along with other jurisdictions.
