PJ Media: “While the California attorney general pleads for more state funding to battle the Trump administration in court and the legislature extends a $25,000 monthly contract to bring the top legal minds of Eric Holder’s law firm to bear against the White House; Gov. Jerry Brown (D) is asking President Trump for help with California’s high-speed train project.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) told a Senate Budget Subcommittee on May 4 his office needs more money to continue fighting Trump’s executive orders.”

“Becerra, who took office in January, has already filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration over an Interior Department order to restart coal leasing on federal land.
He also filed an amicus brief in a case that resulted in a preliminary nationwide injunction against the Trump administration order to withhold federal funding from so-called sanctuary cities and states that refuse to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”

Becerra: “I am operating with a budget that was assembled without addressing the needs of current mandates and before our new reality of dealing with federal executive orders.”
