We want to protect those ordinary Americans, those ordinary Californians who work very hard, from any arbitrary decisions, including decisions that are arbitrary by the President of the United States. That's why today, I am filing a lawsuit in the US District Court for the Southern District of California, on behalf of the 40 million people of the great state of California and on behalf of the California Coastal Commission.
The border between the US and Mexico spans some 2,000 miles. The list of laws violated by the President's administration, in order to build his campaign wall, is almost as long. We respect immigration policy, we understand it's a federal matter. But if it happens in our backyard, we demand that it be carried out in the right way, following the rule of law.
If you want to do business in the state of California, and that includes the President of the United States, then be prepared to follow the law.
