Hundreds of protesters are expected in Sacramento today… where Attorney General Jeff Sessions is addressing the California Peace Officers Association. This after the Trump Administration on Tuesday announced it’s suing California over its sanctuary policies for undocumented immigrants. The suit names Governor Jerry Brown and Attorney General Xavier Becerra, both of whom remain defiant and say they will fight the suit.

Guests:

Devin O'Malley, Department of Justice spokesperson

Scott Shafer, senior editor for KQED's California Politics and Government Desk

David Levin, professor at UC Hastings College of the Law
