California Lawmakers Respond To Trump's Wall Promise


Just a week into office and Pres. Donald Trump is already working to fulfill his campaign promises.

California lawmakers have come out in sharp criticism to Trump’s actions with legislative plans of their own.

Capital Bureau Chief Ben Adler discusses their opposition and has more analysis of Governor Brown’s State of the State address.
