power it has, powers it doesn't have, to frustrate federal law enforcement. so you can be sure i'm going to use every power i have to stop that. >> reporter: he says the goal of the lawsuit is to invalidate the laws and to immediately freeze their effects. live in sacramento, anne makevoc, kpix 5. where does the lawsuit go from here? >> reporter: starting in u.s. district court right here in sacramento, it's sure to be appealed no matter which way it goes then to the appeals court in san francisco and eventually to the supreme court of the united states. but it will be fought by both sides very hard every step of the way. >> it appears so. all right, anne, thank you so much. minutes after sessions made his announcement, governor brown and state attorney general xavier becerra replied. jackie ward continues our team
coverage. >> reporter: governor brown said this so-called unprecedented move by the federal government essentially means that the trump administration is going to war with california. >> this lawsuit is going to last a lot longer than the trump administration. >> reporter: governor brown did not mince words while responding to attorney general jeff sessions' announcement. >> this is a political stunt. it's more like fox news and what's going on in washington and it's not about the truth. it's not about protecting our state. it's about dividing america. >> reporter: and called him a liar. >> this is a time to build bridges, not walls. to pull americans together, not set us apart. and like so many in the trump administration, this attorney general has no regard for the truth. >> reporter: california attorney general xavier becerra agrees. he says every claim the federal government has made against the three laws cited in the lawsuit are simply not true. >> california is in the
business of public safety. we're not in the business of deportations. the lawsuit challenges some of our state laws which are, again, fully constitutional and provide for the safety and welfare of all of our people. >> reporter: becerra called it a low blow to deny local law enforcement departments the funding they say is needed to keep us safe by coercing him to do what the feds want them to do. >> in california, we don't confuse coercion with cooperation. neither should the trump administration. >> reporter: both becerra and brown say california is safely protected by the 10th amendment which defines the relationship between federal and state laws. >> thank you. and a short time ago, senator dianne feinstein tweeted this: pelosi tweeted: "the people of california w t be bowed by the trump
