California is set to request that a lawsuit filed by the Trump administration be moved.
The state wants the lawsuit to be moved from a Sacramento court to San Francisco.
washingtonexaminer.com reports: The state of California will request a recent lawsuit filed by the Trump administration against the state over its “sanctuary” policies be moved from a federal court in Sacramento to one in San Francisco.
In documents filed Friday to Judge John Mendez of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California, state Attorney General Xavier Becerra said his office intends to request the case be transferred to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California next week.
“Plaintiff’s lawsuit seeks to define the parameters of the federal government’s immigration powers as they related to the state’s constitutional powers to enact and enforce laws concerning public safety. This precise issue is currently the subject of the state of California’s litigation against the federal government in the Northern District of California,” Becerra and state officials wrote in court filings.
