Sanctuary state bill gets approval from CA Assembly

In the latest move by local and state officials across the country to fight back against the Trump administration's immigration crackdown, California lawmakers on Saturday morning passed Senate Bill 54, known informally as the "sanctuary state" bill.

Some immigrant rights advocates who were previously disappointed with the list of offenses under the Trust Act, were dismayed to see the same exceptions applied in the so-called sanctuary state bill. But, the state attorney general's office would be required to draft recommendations to limit immigration officials' ability to access personal information, and the office also would be tasked with ensuring that SB54 is enforced. Jerry Brown. The governor and the bill's author, Democratic State Senate.

"Now, more than ever, it is imperative that California law clearly distinguish state and local law enforcement officers from federal deportation agents", said Pasquarella. Kevin de León of Los Angeles passed with a final vote of 27 to 11.

"In my view this bill's going to make us less safe", said Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham, R-Templeton. The California Police Chiefs Association is now neutral on the bill, but the California State Sheriffs' Association still opposes it.

This year's legislation not only raises new, much-needed revenue for housing, it reasserts the state's interest in getting more housing built while preserving the say local communities have in their own neighborhoods.

The changes did not mollify U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Thomas Homan, who said the bill will deliberately destruct immigration laws and shelter criminals. Under the additions to the bill, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation would have to develop new standards to protect people held on immigration violations, and to allow immigrant inmates to receive credits toward their sentences serviced if they undergo rehabilitation and educational programs while incarcerated.

As lawmakers considered the bill Friday another high-profile killing in San Francisco spotlighted the sanctuary issue.

The bill's approval comes less than a day after a federal judge blocked the Trump administration's rules requiring cities to help enforce federal immigration laws in order to receive funding.

Although California lawmakers have enacted several environmental protections this year, a measure aimed at weaning the state's power grid entirely off fossil fuels by 2045 died for the year after lawmakers adjourned without voting on it.
