Xavier Becerra, California Attorney General 

“Becerra will soon help California set a record for the number of times a state has sued one administration, surpassing the previous mark held by Texas, which took a relatively leisurely eight years to sue Barack Obama 48 times—three suits more than California has racked up in the past two years. This year, Becerra has filed to stop the separation of immigrant children from their families, to prevent a rollback of auto-emission limits, and to block the addition of a citizenship question on the 2020 U.S. census. Other suits include ones seeking to stop President Trump from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and from limiting access to birth control. ‘We need to continue to keep creating good jobs, keep California a place where people want to raise their families and start their business,’ Becerra says.”
