Gov. Brown Signs Bill to Make California a Sanctuary State
Ben Adler of Capital Public Radio reports on 10/5/17:
“California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill that places sharp limits on how state and local law enforcement agencies can cooperate with federal immigration authorities, placing California squarely and provocatively in conflict with President Donald Trump and his calls to deport millions of immigrants in the country unlawfully.
“These are uncertain times for undocumented Californians and their families,” the governor said in a signing statement that laid out what the measure will – and will not – do. “This bill strikes a balance that will protect public safety while bringing a measure of comfort to those families who are now living in fear every day.”
