A top aide to Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday blasted the Trump administration's decision to end protections for children who were brought to the country illegally by their parents.
The aide, Nancy McFadden, called the move "senseless and cruel."
"California has its eyes on Congress to do what it should have done years ago, but we cannot bank on that," she said in a statement. "So the governor stands with Attorney General [Xavier] Becerra as he takes our fight to court to defend the Dreamers.”
