CALIFORNIA/STATES RIGHTS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “The Trump administration is all in favor of states’ rights. Except when it’s not. Attorney General Jeff Sessions brushed aside state autonomy to sue California over its so-called sanctuary policies that shield undocumented immigrants from deportation. He also unleashed federal prosecutors to go after marijuana businesses in the states that have legalized cannabis sales. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is butting heads with governors in coastal states over his agency’s plan to open federal waters to offshore drilling. And Education Secretary Betsy DeVos told states they lacked the authority to crack down on predatory practices by some of the nation’s largest student loan companies. President Donald Trump wouldn’t be the first Republican to pay lip service to states’ rights as a presidential candidate and then to govern quite differently, but the disconnect is especially jarring because he has been so vocal about the issue.”
