Liberal Senator and potential 2020 presidential hopeful Kamala Harris issued a stark warning to Attorney General Jeff Sessions Thursday; telling the Senior Trump aide that “California represents the future” of the United States, not the past.
Harris was speaking with MSNBC News’ Chris Hayes when she scolded Sessions for his remarks in Sacramento Wednesday night; telling a roomful of law enforcement officers that California must obey “federal statutes” regarding immigration guidelines.
“This Administration and Jeff Sessions in particular have clearly put a target on the back of California and California’s going to fight,” Harris told Hayes. “And, I think that these folks are really mired in rolling back the clock in time and that’s not going to happen. California represents the future, and they don’t like it, but there you go.”
The Senator’s harsh rhetoric comes as the war of words between the Trump administration and California officials heats up over the state’s ‘Sanctuary City’ laws.
“California, we have a problem. A series of actions and events have occurred here that directly and adversely impact the work of our federal officers,” said the Attorney General.
