The U.S. Department of Justice on Wednesday sued California over a law that aims to give the state power to override the sale of federal lands, the latest battle between President Donald Trump and the nation's most populous state.
The complaint lists three examples of how the federal government planned to sell certain public lands in the state that could be prevented by the California law, including the Department of the Army's plans to sell to a developer about 78 acres of federal property in Alameda County for construction of facilities at Camp Parks, an Army military installation.
Stein argues that adding a citizenship question would "depress census turnout in states with large immigrant populations, directly threatening those states' fair representation for billions of dollars in critical federal funds for education, infrastructure, and more, as well as in Congress and the Electoral College". Lawmakers who passed the law a year ago cited concerns that the Trump administration would allow more logging, oil drilling or development on some of the 46 million acres owned by the federal government in California.
"Once again, the California Legislature has enacted an extreme state law attempting to frustrate federal policy", Attorney General Jeff Sessionssaid in a statement.

Last month, Sessions, during his visit to Sacramento, California's capital, announced that he was suing the state over laws that hinder cooperation with federal immigration authorities. 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.
Last fall, we featured California reporter Katy Grimes' book, California's War Against Trump, which chronicled the regulatory and legal volleys that the state's politicians has lobbed against President Trump since the day of his historic election.

The administration in early March announced it would challenge the state's so-called sanctuary policies, restricting local law enforcement's communication with federal immigration authorities. "Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown", highlighted that the crimes he pardoned included "kidnapping and robbery", "badly beating wife", and "dealing drugs".
Senior Justice officials were not shy about the targeting of California, saying during a briefing on the issue Monday their action was a "product of the extreme nature of laws that have been passed in California recently".
