(SFGATE) — U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is expected to make what is being called a major announcement on “sanctuary jurisdiction” during a speech in Sacramento on Wednesday.

Sessions will be speaking at the annual meeting of the California Peace Officers Association over a subject of tension between Session’s Justice Department and California lawmakers and immigration advocates. The meeting will be at the Sawyer Hotel in downtown Sacramento, said Carol Leveroni, the association’s executive director.

“It’s a big deal,” Leveroni said. “We were informed he was going to be in town, so we invited him to speak.”
