CA: Brown signs “sanctuary state” bill

Source: Politico

“California Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday signed ‘sanctuary state’ legislation limiting local law enforcement officials’ ability to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, the latest effort by Democrats here to blunt the effects of President Donald Trump’s immigration policies. … The ‘sanctuary state’ bill prohibits local officials from asking about a person’s immigration status or from working in many cases with federal immigration agents. But the measure was significantly weakened before passage to gain Brown’s support, allowing local agencies to work with immigration authorities on cases involving immigrants convicted of a wide range of crimes.” [hat tip — David Klaus] (10/05/17)
