"A series of actions and events have occurred here that directly and adversely impact the work of our federal officers".

"I can't sit by idly while the lawful authority of federal officers are being blocked by legislative acts and politicians", he said, straying from his prepared remarks.

"This is basically going to war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy", Brown said in a press conference Wednesday.

The state's resources should not be "commandeered" by the federal government, he told reporters in a briefing.

Meanwhile, Schaaf has staunchly defended her position, saying she would go to jail to defend her city's sanctuary city policies, which are legal and limit the cooperation of the Oakland police department and ICE.

Protesters who greeted Sessions offered a stark reminder of the kind of resistance he faces.

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.

A federal judge on Monday rejected a request from the state of California to put a halt to the Trump administration policy of penalizing sanctuary city and state measures aimed at protecting illegal immigrants. That's how we keep our communities safe.

District Attorney George Gascón also called the timing of the lawsuit and recent raids "suspicious", considering the low presidential approval ratings as midterm elections ramp up. "It's in the Constitution".

Larger US cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago and NY ruled by the opposition Democrats, adopted policies that hinder the sharing of information between the local police and immigration officers.

Gov. Jerry Brown and the bill's author, state Senate leader Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles), have both discouraged the use of the term "sanctuary state".

Re Justice Department sues California over "sanctuary" laws that aid those in USA illegally (March 7): This is the tyranny that the Founding Fathers feared. Another law allows the state to monitor federal DHS facilities. "But California has gone over the line by actually obstructing the ability of immigration enforcement". I mean, fair to say that the Trump administration has a mixed record so far in federal court.

Brown suggested that, given reports of President Donald Trump's unhappiness with the attorney general since he recused himself from an investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Sessions might simply be trying to keep his job.

In his signing statement previous year, the governor wrote that "it is important to note what the bill does not do".

Chris Chmielenski, director of content and activism at NumbersUSA, said the suit will hinge on the precise claims made by the administration and the remedies it seeks. The Justice Department is suing the state and its top officials tonight.

"Given how strongly California supported the Obama administration in the Arizona case, it's going to show what hypocrites they are", he said. He will be speaking at the annual gathering of the California Peace Officers' Association.

"So here's my message to Mayor Schaaf", Sessions added.

California officials remain defiant and say they are on firm legal footing.
