California Passes “Sanctuary State” Bill, Sends To Governor

Let’s take a trip back to April, when the LA Times published a few letters

My street hasn’t been swept for years. When I tried to find out why, I was told that my area is not “on the list” because there are no longer enough machines and people to drive them. Services that I continue to pay for have been stopped.

If there is enough money around to help illegal immigrants, surely there is enough to begin sweeping my dirty street again. Shouldn’t citizens come before illegal residents?

To the editor: So-called sanctuary cities and the state of California say they do not want to spend their precious resources on enforcing federal immigration laws because it is not the function of local government to do so.

Now for the irony: Both the city and the county of Los Angeles will spend millions of taxpayer dollars to defend people in federal immigration courts where the only action is a right to residency or potential deportation. In these cases, state laws are not at issue.

Good news: It won’t be just a few cities, but the State of California will spend tons of money protecting illegal aliens

(ABC News) California lawmakers have approved a “sanctuary state” bill that would limit police cooperation with federal immigration authorities.

The bill approved early Saturday is intended to bolster immigrant protections in the state that are already among the toughest in the nation.

It will now be considered by Gov. Jerry Brown, who announced his support after the top state Senate leader agreed to water down the bill and preserve authority for jail and prison officials to cooperate with immigration officers in many cases.

The vote was pretty much along party lines.

It prohibits law enforcement officials from asking about a person’s immigration status or participating in immigration enforcement efforts.

It also prohibits law enforcement officials from being deputized as immigration agents or arresting people on civil immigration warrants.

It pretty much means that law enforcement officers cannot co-operate with federal officials on almost all immigration matters.

Democrats say the bill will help ensure that immigrants feel safe reporting crimes to law enforcement.

What about the citizens of California feeling safe from the influx of criminal aliens? Regardless, illegals tend to not report crimes in the first place. This won’t change that dynamic. It will mean more illegals streaming into California, causing crimes, gumming up the emergency rooms, jamming up the jails, taking money away from things that would benefit citizens. But, hey, you voted for these criminal supporters in state government, Californians: now you get to deal with it.

    How about protecting the actual citizens reporting the crime that people have invaded their state from another country illegally?

        Bob,

        Taking a break from chowing down on a bag of dicks?

        • Bob spelled backwards says:

          I’ll take that as a “yes, I’m flinging poo at the local constabulary, and I am in fact starting dumpster fires.” After that, I’d guess are the homoerotic fantasies that the average leftist engages in.
