Gov. Jerry Brown on 60 MinutesA GOP leader in California says an increasing number of voters in his state are growing tired of the liberal polices of Democrats that are hurting the quality of life there.

This week Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a new lawsuit against California, escalating a war of words between the Trump administration and the Democratic-controlled state and Governor Jerry Brown (pictured). The administration is suing the Golden State over three laws that hinder its ability to enforce federal immigration laws.

OneNewsNow spoke with Jim Brulte, chairman of the Republican Party of California, about "progressive" policies that have guided the state to its present situation. He blames Democrats, who he points out have had complete control of the state government. By almost every metric, he says, "California's in trouble."

"They've created a sanctuary state – so they're more than happy to have illegal alien felons stay in the state," he begins. "But they've also let 40,000 citizen felons out of state prison and even more out of state jails.

"And now they're scratching their heads, trying to figure out why the violent crime rate has gone up almost 16 points in the last two years," he says.

"If California were a stand-alone country, we'd be the fifth largest economy in the world – and yet almost one in four of our citizens live below the poverty line," he notes.

"The Democrats are the architects of income inequality here in California. This is not lost on the voters – and it's starting to show up in the polls."
