Lawmakers wrap the 2017 legislative session, 'sanctuary state' bill goes to Gov

  • After long negotiations Gov. Jerry Brown and state Senate leader Kevin de León came to a compromise on the

California lawmakers have approved a bill to make the most populous US state a sanctuary state for immigrants who do not have legal residency.

The Assembly and Senate must approve the measure by Friday or delay action until next year.

"The California State Sheriffs' Association (CSSA) remains opposed to SB 54 writing, "... limiting local law enforcement's ability to communicate and cooperate with federal law enforcement officers endangers public safety." .

In November 2016, the University of California issued a Statement of Principles in support of undocumented students, stating that campus police officers will not work with federal agencies to enforce immigration law. "With SB 54, California will meaningfully improve state law to keep families together and communities whole-and not a moment too soon as the Trump administration continues its draconian and indiscriminate crackdown on immigrants".

Democrats argued the bill would heighten public safety by building trust between undocumented immigrants and police, encouraging crime victims to come forward.

Voter Fraud Commission Holds Second Meeting In New Hampshire Amid Controversy
Dunlap says just because someone doesn't have an in-state driver's license doesn't mean they've committed voter fraud. It is a role based entirely on citizens freely exercising our most fundamental right - the right to vote.

Immigration agents would still be allowed to interview immigrants in jail, and immigration agents would not be barred from accessing state databases.

Shortly after Trump won election last fall, de León's staff invited several immigration lawyers to join a conference call and asked them to bring ideas that were considered politically infeasible under the Obama administration back to the table in California.

In arguing against the measure, Republicans in the Assembly invoked the 2015 shooting of Kate Steinle by an undocumented immigrant in San Francisco, arguing that sanctuary protections make communities less safe.

A pair of bills seeking to ban smoking at California's parks and beaches are heading to Gov. "It's going to protect the criminal at the expense of the law abiding citizen".

The bill also prevents local and state law enforcement from detaining someone over an immigration hold request. We invite you to join us: At the next Summit, taking place November 2-3 in San Diego, housing leaders from across the state will have a chance to celebrate the progress made this year-and to craft a strategy for what must be done next to provide a way home for California.
