California Attorney General Xavier Becerra also had strong words to say on the matter and vowed that the state will stay the course in order to protect all the state's citizens by upholding the law.

California Governor Edmund Brown blasted the DOJ after the announcement. Brown said he hoped to have a "rational discussion" with U.S. Department of Justice officials once Sessions' "circus" left Sacramento.

Last month, President Trump said "if we ever pulled our ICE out, if we ever said, 'Hey, let California alone, let them figure it out for themselves, ' in two months they'd be begging for us to come back".

The attorney general, Jeff sessions, is planning to announce complaint on Wednesday morning in Sacramento, capital of California, in front of a group of representatives of security forces. Jerry Brown passed a "sanctuary state" law a year ago. The suit is specifically taking aim at California's SB54 law, a mandate that prohibits local police from reporting illegal immigrants to immigration officials for minor offenses, the Immigrant Worker Protection Act, and a law regarding the inspection of immigrant detention centers. The Trump administration has sought to demonstrate that it will not tolerate noncompliance with federal immigration enforcement; California's top officials, self-proclaimed leaders of the anti-Trump resistance, have pushed the state to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement as little as possible.
