“SACRAMENTO — President Trump entered office with ambitious plans to block immigrants from seven majority-Muslim nations, kick millions of immigrants out of the country and build a massive fence along the southern border with Mexico.
Those plans ran headlong into California’s attorney general, Xavier Becerra, himself the son of immigrants.
Becerra, a former member of House Democratic leadership in Congress, has spent his first year at the helm of the California Department of Justice filing lawsuits against the Trump administration. He’s challenged Trump’s travel bans, the border wall, a proposal to ban transgender people from serving in the military and a plan to end cost-sharing payments for health care subsidies, just for starters.
In all, Becerra has filed 26 lawsuits against the Trump administration and joined several led by other states — more than any other state attorney general in America.”
