As a sanctuary state, illegal immigrants have new protections, even if they commit additional crimes.
I doubt anyone is surprised that Governor Jerry Brown signed the sanctuary state legislation. How else are Democrats going to stay in power in California? As more citizens wake up they are going to need new votes from South of the border to prevent a Republican backlash.
The only silver lining here is that the most productive and valuable citizens are going to flee the California disaster to boost the economies of other states.
California became the first “sanctuary state” for undocumented immigrants Friday, a decision criticized by the Trump administration which believes the move will compromise security.
California’s governor, Democrat Jerry Brown, signed the landmark legislation — Senate Bill 54 (SB54) — which grants better protections to people who are in the US without permission, including those who have committed crimes.
It also limits cooperation between local police forces and federal authorities in operations to track down undocumented immigrants.
The legislation, which will come into effect on January 1, 2018, is part of a series of laws which protect the almost 3 million undocumented immigrants living in California — most of whom are from Mexico and Central America.
