California Looks To Thwart Federal Immigration Law By Targeting Private Business

Hey, remember when we were told by Democrats that federal law trumps state law? Things like Arizona’s SB1070, anti-gay marriage and anti-gender confused men in girl’s bathrooms bills/referendums, and so forth? Huh

California bills target private business to help immigrants

California Democrats are expanding their efforts to resist President Donald Trump’s crackdown on immigrants in the country illegally with bills aimed at limiting how much private businesses can cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

Democrats control all levels of state government, and leaders have vowed to resist Trump administration policies at every turn. Immigration is among their key issues, but most legislation so far has been aimed at limiting what police can do to help immigration authorities and providing additional state services and support to immigrants in the country illegally.

Now, two bills that advanced in the Assembly in the past week are taking aim at private businesses.

A measure that would bar landlords from disclosing tenants’ immigration status or reporting them to immigration officials passed the chamber. A bill prohibiting public and private employers from letting immigration agents come into their worksites or view their employee files cleared a committee.

Both bills contain exceptions if employers or landlords are complying with a warrant or subpoena.

In other words, this is a crackdown on employers and landlords from complying with federal laws voluntarily, which the law kinda requires that they comply with the law voluntarily.

Assemblyman Kevin Kiley, who opposes the measures, said he thinks they could actually promote fear in immigrant communities, and existing laws already protect tenants. He said the proposals, along with many of the other immigration bills introduced this session, are designed more to make a political statement than to enact good policy.

“If you have a private citizen who provides certain information at the behest of a federal authority, they might end up facing (consequences) just for complying with the request,” the Sacramento-area Republican said. “Measures like that do more harm than good.”

Meanwhile, the California jails are overflowing with criminal illegal aliens. Murderers, rapists, thieves, gang members, etc. Hospital emergency rooms have closed due to illegals using them as doctor’s offices. And so many more issues. It’d be funny as hell if Trump said “we aren’t going to bother going after illegals in California, so all who are here illegally should go there.” Let California deal with the fallout.

    In other words, when this bill passes CA businesses will have a choice of which law to disobey — state or federal. Either way they get to go to jail. Is that a fair assessment?

    If not for all the decent people still living there it would.

    No problem. Kick CA out of the country.

    The standard ICE Form I-9, the one employers are required, by federal law, to complete on hiring an employee, is supposed to be maintained, at the companies’ main offices, for inspection by immigration officials. Now the People’s Republic of California wishes to state that a form required by federal law not be made available to federal officials?
