Attorney General Jeff Sessions slammed California’s Democrat leadership for rejecting the rule of law, and for protecting criminal illegal immigrants.

The nation’s top cop spoke at a meeting with the California Peace Officers Association in Sacramento Wednesday.

He said the Justice Department’s lawsuit against the Golden State is to stop state lawmakers from actively obstructing law enforcement from deporting criminal illegal immigrants.

Sessions called out Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, saying she needlessly endangered the lives of law enforcement officers when she tipped-off the public about a four day ICE raid.

“ICE agents do incredible work every dya and they’re not backing down, they’re not going to be deterred and we’re not going to stop enforcing the law in Alabama or California either for that matter,” Sessions stated. “We are simply asking the state and other sanctuary jurisdictions to stop actively obstructing federal law enforcement.”

The attorney general said California officials are violating the law to promote an agenda the American people fundamentally reject.
