The 20 Worst Political Scandals In History

WASHINGTON D.C. — Attorney General Jeff Sessions used harsh language to attack California's new bill that gives undocumented immigrants certain state-wide protections, calling it "unconscionable."

Sessions made the comments when speaking to federal immigration and law enforcement officers in Portland, Oregon.

"The bill risks the safety of good law enforcement officers and the safety of the neighborhoods that need their protection the most," Sessions said, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.

Sessions also called on California Gov. Jerry Brown to veto the bill, passed by the legislature on Saturday, which limits how much information California law enforcement officials are permitted to share with federal immigration agents.

Brown, however, defended the legislation, calling it a "well-balanced bill" made necessary by "this kind of xenophobia we see coming out of Washington."

"It protects public safety but it also protects hardworking people who contribute a lot to California," said Brown during an interview on CNN, adding, "We're not soldiers of Donald Trump or the federal immigration service."

Although studies show that the crime rate for immigrants is generally lower than for native residents, Sessions drew his usual connection between illegal immigration and violent crime.

"This state of lawlessness allows gangs to smuggle guns, drugs and even humans across borders and around cities and communities," Sessions said. "That makes a sanctuary city a trafficker, smuggler or gang member's best friend."

Protesters gathered outside the Portland venue where Sessions spoke to voice their disapproval of his stand against the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or 'Dreamer,' program an Obama-era initiative that granted temporary legal status to undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children.
