Trump Opponent Sworn In As Top California Lawyer

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – California’s top legal official has been sworn in to his first full term in office and is promising to protect Californians from “the overreach of the federal government.” Democrat Xavier Becerra was among the first inaugurations of California’s constitutional officers Monday. He took his oath hours before Gavin Newsom takes over as governor from Jerry Brown. In a challenge to President Donald Trump, Becerra told supporters “our state builds dreams, not walls.” Brown appointed Becerra two years ago to succeed Kamala Harris as attorney general after she won a seat in the U.S. Senate. The former congressman says he has since filed or joined more than 100 briefs and other legal actions against Trump’s administration. The state’s first Latino attorney general was retained for a four-year term by nearly two-thirds of voters in November’s election.
