Lawmakers Vote To Make California A ‘Sanctuary State’

California is poised to become a so-called “sanctuary state” after its legislature passed a bill Saturday that would establish new protections for people who are in the country illegally, sending a clear signal of defiance against the Trump administration’s tough approach to immigration enforcement.

The California Values Act would forbid state and local law enforcement agencies from providing information to or acting as the deputies for federal immigration authorities. The bill also prohibits police and sheriff officers from inquiring about a person’s immigration status.

The bill was introduced just before President Trump’s inauguration and met opposition from some in California law enforcement, including many local sheriffs who lobbied California Gov. Jerry Brown to intervene, as KQED’s Scott Shafer reported.

A compromise hammered out earlier this week between Brown and California Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León carved out exceptions to the new restrictions.

    It has been ruled that federal money cannot be withheld from sanctuary cities but I wonder why there was a glitsch in the system to caused the funding to be delayed for a few months. Maybe the allocation was “bleached” accidently by hilliary before she left, wink, wink.

    California has become America’s toothache! Constant chaos for Trump and his party, but this was the plan of the Dem. party so Trump couldn’t get things done and a congress that has now been really exposed for what it is and it’s NOT for America and it’s people!! No wonder we’re doomed to fall, greed and power has destroyed the best thing to happen to the world!!

Those IDIOTS think the US Taxpayers should help pay for a whole GD state that has the MOST ILLEGALS IN IT?? Yeah the LEFT LOVES THEM because as that DACA poster child who’s illegal !was found to have VOTED IN THE 2016 POTUS ELECTION! SHE ACTUALY GAVE MONEY TO THE LEFT! WHICH ARE BOTH ILLEGAL! No wonder the Left doesn’t want voter I.Ds! Because they would loose millions of ILLEGAL VOTES!! & that’s why in the 2020 Potus election the Dems/libs are going to innundate both KALIFORNICATION & NY! Because if their 100% LEFTIST BS &:ILLEGAL POPULATION, that DACA poster child was just one of MANY ILLEGALS WHO VOTED IN 2016! & was shown! & the illegal donations! + going on frigging ( go-fund-me) to raise funDs to travel the USA & even Mexico!

Yeah our GD system is BROKEN! If known illegals are able to visit other countries & come back into the USA even as ILLEGAL! REALLY REALKY MAKES ME FEEL SAFE ( NOT) LOL

        I couldn’t agree more my friend, by voting in Trump it saved our country for a while, but if or when we ever have another Dem. President there will be a war from he$$ for us to survive what they will put on this country! They mean to bring down this country any way possible and I took an oath to defend this once great place and it was for life and they’re passing Bill after Bill to keep weapons out of the hands of Vets., they don’t want people that know how to fight back!!

  • Pete Bundy says:

    Maybe California needs to split into three separate states. LA and the surrounding counties can have all the illegals, San Francisco and surrounding counties can have all the fruitcakes and the rest can just be normal citizens. T

    When they build the southern wall, they need to extend it all the way up, with CA on the outside!

    1. Jan says:

      Actually the interior of California, minus Sacramento, is more conservative than the coast I live on. Just split it North to South and call it The People’s Republic of Califormex in the West and just California in the East.

      1. gvette says:

        Good idea, but that’ll never happen. Ole Moonbeam wouldn’t like it.

    2. Rodney Steward says:

      And take all the muslims in this country and put them inside that wall and tell them to have at it!!

    3. Patriot068 says:
