Following Attorney General Jeff Sessions' speech slamming "open borders radicals" in California, Gov. Jerry Brown called the Trump administration's lawsuit "an act of war."
The Justice Department is suing the state of California, Gov. Brown and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, accusing them of obstructing federal immigration agents trying to enforce the law.
The war of words between California and the Trump administration heated up as Sessions unleashed criticism on Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, among others, and Brown launched a strongly-worded volley in return.
California's governor seems to be reveling in his role as a leading voice against the Trump administration.
