By the stroke of Governor Jerry Brown’s pen, California has just become a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants:
SFGATE – California will beef up protections for undocumented immigrants beginning in January under a controversial new law Gov. Jerry Brown signed Thursday to create a statewide sanctuary policy.
Brown signed the bill and 10 other immigration-related bills on the same day as a critical deadline for immigrants aided by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, who must file by Thursday for a final two-year extension before the program is phased out.
SB54, by Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles, limits when local law enforcement agencies can help federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency on deportations cases to instances where an immigrant has been convicted of certain crimes. The law, considered the most-far reaching sanctuary policy of its kind, goes into effect Jan. 1.
The law bars law enforcement officers in the state from asking about a person’s immigration status or participating in any joint task force with federal officials for the purpose of enforcing immigration laws.
The new law makes changes to the state’s Trust Act by barring local jails from holding an inmate for immigration authorities if that person is cleared for release on their state criminal cases. The law also limits the list of offenses that make undocumented immigrants subject to having their impending release passed along to federal authorities.
Absolutely disgusting. I hope Trump and his officials kill all non-essential aid to the state of California.
Also we’ll see if this unconstitional law gets challenged before January and just how many liberal judges give it a pass.
