CalWatchdog Morning Read – January 27

by CalWatchdog Staff | January 27, 2017 8:30 am

Good morning! TGIF. It’s all Trump, all the time now.

Trump’s signing of executive orders Wednesday to begin planning for construction of a wall along the Mexican border, to withhold federal funds from local governments that don’t cooperate with immigration authorities and to increase efforts to track down illegal immigrants immediately prompted Senate President Kevin de Leon to announce plans to sue the Trump administration with the assistance of former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

Further lawsuits seem likely as the Republican Trump continues to reverse policies that heavily Democratic California embraced under President Obama.

There’s a road map for how a large, wealthy state can resist a president whose edicts it doesn’t like: Texas in the past eight years under Obama.
