California Sanctuary State bill approved by State Assembly

California Gov. Jerry Brown left and Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon D Los Angeles

The bill, a compromise from a version that sought to severely restrict interactions between law enforcement and immigration officials, does allow communities to notify the federal government if they have arrested an undocumented immigrant with a felony record.

"I know, from speaking to hundreds of victims of crimes, witnesses of crimes, that if you're a victim or a witness, it's hard to trust working with law enforcement if you think there's a chance that your immigration status might be passed along to the federal government", he said.

It also would allow local authorities to turn over immigrants to federal agents if detainees have been convicted of one or more of a list of 800 serious crimes, the newspaper reported.

"Given their limited resources, I agree that state and local law enforcement should not be doing the jobs of federal immigration agents", said Bates.

But they will be prohibited from from transferring immigrants to federal authorities if they have committed only minor offenses.

Illinois' Republican Governor signed a bill last month protecting people from being detained because they are the subject of an immigration-related warrant.

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.

California police chiefs dropped their opposition but sheriffs, who run jails where the biggest impacts will be felt, remain opposed.

"This bill here today helps some of us to believe that California is a safe place for immigrants, that we are a Golden State", said Democratic Assemblyman Joaquin Arambula, the grandson of immigrants who came to California illegally.

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.

Earlier Friday, a federal judge in Chicago ruled against the Trump administration and an order issued by Attorney General Jeff Sessions requiring so-called sanctuary cities to cooperate with immigration agents in order to get federal funding in the form of public safety grants. The state's prison system is now excluded from most of the bill's provisions.
