Suing California: What Washington's move means for future conflicts

In 2017, the state of California filed 24 cases against the Trump administration over issues that range from Obamacare to oil royalties. The lawsuit, filed Tuesday evening in Federal District Court in Sacramento, asks to block three “sanctuary” laws enacted last year by California, claiming the laws prevent federal immigration officials from doing their job. It marks the latest skirmish in the conflict between the Democratic Golden State and the Republican Trump administration – a clash that began almost as soon as President Trump was sworn into office.
