Trump sues California over sales of United States lands

US Justice Department to Sue California Over State's Right to Sell Lands

The state law, which was signed in 2017, gave state officials the right to purchase any federal land in California the US government tries to sell to private ownership.

The law, enacted in October, gives the State Lands Commission a first right of refusal to the sale or lease of federal public lands in California.

Last month, after the Justice Department filed its lawsuit over the sanctuary policies, Sessions traveled to California and lambasted state leaders, referencing Abraham Lincoln and secession in a fiery speech about immigration enforcement and the power of the federal government. The California legislature concluded, however, that "this bill does not violate the property clause of the U.S. Constitution because it does not actually prohibit the federal government from conveying its property".

"California has once again passed an extreme statute, found in no other state, to obstruct the federal government", Jesse Panuccio, the Justice Department's associate attorney general, telling reporters according to Reuters, "this time by interfering with the conveyance of federal land".

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra defended the state's restrictions on federal land sales.

"We've got a different outlook here, and you know, look, I think that Jeff Sessions, of all people, should know the value of allowing states with different perspectives to do things the way they want to do things, within reason", Allen said. The Justice Department's lawsuit against California's sanctuary laws, while supported by many Republicans, has raised criticism that Sessions is weakening states' rights.

Sessions issued a second statement late Monday afternoon saying that he regrets "the need to file another lawsuit against the state of California" but he was forced to because California believes it's "above the law" and is passing unconstitutional laws that interfere with the federal government's ability to do its job and filing lawsuits that won't stand up in court but delay administration's policies.

State officials characterized the latest Justice suit as another "attack" by the Trump administration on Californian's "very way of life". "We will use every legal and administrative tool to thwart Trump's plans to auction off California's heritage to the highest bidder". Rather than directly assert any power over the federal government, it denies title recording to the private buyer who owns land - after the sale - as a private California citizen.

The statement, though, was notable for the forcefulness of its language suggesting that the Trump administration would take on California's authority to set its own rules.

Trump also recently took aim at California Gov.

The legal action is yet another clash between President Trump and California's liberal movement determined to demonstrate its resistance to his presidency and policies.

"We're not transferring or selling public land", Zinke said in a January interview with conservative radio commentator Josh Tolley.

California officials assert they have the authority to implement the state legislation because they wouldn't be preventing sales of the land. Brown for pardoning five illegal immigrants who are facing possible deportation.
