California Sued Again by the Federal Government Regarding Federal Land Sales

ABC News


The Justice Department is filing another lawsuit against California. This time the federal government is suing over a California law that gives the state power to block the sale of federal lands. In a statement, Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he regrets that he has to file another lawsuit against California. He says states like California believe they’re above the law. He adds that California is creating laws that interfere with the federal government’s ability to carry out its law enforcement duties. Last month, Sessions sued California over laws promoting sanctuary policies that limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities.
