Last night we learned Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions are filing a lawsuit against my home state of California for refusing to comply with their anti-immigrant agenda.
This is a shameful stunt designed to intimidate California officials and endanger our public safety. It won’t work. We will always fight to uphold the core values of our nation. That means standing up for the idea that America is a nation of immigrants and our diversity makes us a stronger country.
No state in the union has more immigrants — documented and undocumented — than California, and they’re counting on us to fight for them.
That’s why I’m asking:
Can you sign my petition denouncing Trump and Sessions’ repeated attacks on California and our immigrant communities? Together, whether you live in California or not, we can send an unmistakable message that we won’t be intimidated.
Today, Sessions is in California to formally announce the lawsuit — and I believe it is crucial we respond with a powerful show of grassroots solidarity.
This is a moment where we must measure up to the ideals of our nation and fight for what we believe in, even if it means supposed leaders like Trump and Sessions come after us.
Thanks for all you do,
U.S. Senator, California
