California lawmakers approve sanctuary bill

California legislators passed a bill early Saturday morning to protect the state's undocumented residents from federal immigration authorities.

According to The Sacramento Bee, this is at least the third time in the last decade a park and beach smoking ban bill has been sent to the governor's desk, but each have been rejected with the most recent veto coming past year from the Democratic governor.

Police and sheriff's officials, including jail officers, will still be able to work with federal immigration authorities if a person has been convicted of one of some 800 crimes, mostly felonies and misdemeanors that can be charged as felonies.

"Now, more than ever, it is imperative that California law clearly distinguish state and local law enforcement officers from federal deportation agents", said Pasquarella. The attorney general also has broad authority under the state constitution to ensure that police and sheriffs agencies follow the bill's provisions should it be signed into law.

McDonnell had broken ranks with many other Los Angeles elected officials by opposing the initial legislation, arguing that if immigration agents could not pick up people from the jails, they would go looking for them in the streets.

The California Values Act would not necessarily make California the country's first "sanctuary state".

The compromise moved the California Police Chiefs Association's position on the bill opposed to neutral.

"The time for political posturing is over, guys", said Assemblyman James Gallagher, R-Yuba City. The Republican-controlled body is seeking to bolster federal criminal and immigration law enforcement.

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.

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

Brown and de Leon reached their agreement in the last week of the legislative year. We invite you to join us: At the next Summit, taking place November 2-3 in San Diego, housing leaders from across the state will have a chance to celebrate the progress made this year-and to craft a strategy for what must be done next to provide a way home for California.

The bill's passage comes less than a day after a federal judge in Chicago blocked the Trump administration's attempt to withhold grant money from so-called sanctuary cities.
