Laxalt supports DOJ appeal against California ‘sanctuary’ laws

Nevada has signed on in support of the federal government’s challenge to three so-called “sanctuary” laws in California, Attorney General Adam Laxalt announced Tuesday.

Laxalt joined a coalition of attorneys general in filing a friend-of-the-court brief in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in support of the U.S. Department of Justice’s lawsuit seeking to overturn the laws, officials with his office said in a news release.
