CA Legislature Set to Vote on 'Sanctuary State' Proposal

State Sen. Toni Atkins D San Diego thanks Assemblyman Marc Levine D San Rafael after he voted for her housing measure before the state Assembly Thursday Sept. 14 2017 in Sacramento Calif. Six bills aimed at addressing the crisis cleared the Assem

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. Many, they said, have been afraid to go to school or to take their sick children to the hospital since President Donald Trump - who promised widespread deportations as part of a crackdown on illegal immigration - has been president.

"I think this has been an historic year for all of our accomplishments", said Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) just after 2 a.m. on Saturday.

"While not flawless, [the bill] kept intact our ability to maintain partnerships with federal law enforcement officials who help us in the fight against gangs, drugs and human trafficking", McDonnell said in a written statement.

The bill prohibits law-enforcement from conducting front-line immigration enforcement but allows jail officials to notify federal agents about some people in detention.

The California Assembly has approved a multi-bill package to address the state's affordable housing crunch.

It's likely the Browns will add another pass rusher in his absence, and Nate Orchard and Carl Nassib each move up in the rotation. Kessler started in April and the No. 1 QB before being replaced by Brock Osweiler after 9 training camp practices.

This was the first year of the Legislature's two-year session.

The Assembly and Senate must approve the measure by Friday or delay action until next year.

The organization put out a release earlier this week, saying that "California's front-line law enforcement officers do not now engage in, and have no intention of engaging in, immigration enforcement in the field".

Some immigrant rights advocates who were previously disappointed with the list of offenses under the Trust Act, were dismayed to see the same exceptions applied in the so-called sanctuary state bill. "It's going to protect the criminal at the expense of the law abiding citizen". It also would limit police cooperation with immigration officers.

USA weighs sanctions relief while bemoaning Iran's behaviour
As officials have made clear for months, the White House is seeking ways to find that Tehran is not complying with the agreement. That would very likely shift the focus to Tehran - and to Congress, which could move to impose new sanctions on Iran.

The last minute vote on the bill comes after extended negotiations over the details.

But the activists generally praised the compromise with Brown.

He says California would follow the lead of nine other states with similar restrictions. "This is where the dragnet is".

Once released, the documents would appear on the California Secretary of State's website.
