Socialist California Comes Closer to Becoming a Sanctuary State


Senate Bill 54, the “sanctuary state” legislation, bans California state and local law enforcement from helping federal immigration agencies.

The Senate passed the bill by a 27-12 vote on Monday, sending it to the state assembly, The Associated Press reported.

It was advanced by Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de  León, a leftist who has half his family living here illegally. That’s what happens when you don’t have borders – foreigners decide the country’s policies.

Listen to him say his family is here illegally.

“We will cooperate with our friends at the federal level with serious and violent felons,” de León told reporters. “But we won’t cooperate or lift a finger or spend a single cent when we’re talking about separating children from their mothers, mothers from their children.”

“That’s not who we are as a great state,” he said.

That’s nice of him.

The controversial bill blocks law enforcement from detaining a person due to a request from ICE, or other federal agencies. It also bars local authorities from responding to federal immigration officials’ requests for notification or providing information about an individual’s release date unless that information is already publicly available or, as previously stated, they are a convicted or violent felon.

“Our precious local law enforcement resources will be squandered if police are pulled from their duties to arrest otherwise law-abiding maids, busboys, labors, mothers, and fathers,” de León said in a statement. “Trust will be lost. Crimes will go unreported for fear of deportation. Criminals will remain free to victimize others.”

In other words, illegal criminals won’t leave either and the argument that crimes won’t be reported is bogus. There will be fewer crimes if the criminals are shipped out but they won’t be under these circumstances.

“By passing this today, you’ll be kicking the president right in the groin, and I can imagine he’s going to strike back,” state Republican Rep. Jeff Stone said.

It’s time to defund these people. We will have a lot more money for states who do the right thing by Americans.

As Stone said, it provides shelter for violent offenders.

“We’re prohibiting local and state unfettered communications with federal authorities in getting many dangerous and violent felons out of our communities,” Stone said.

The state lawmaker claimed de León’s changes to the bill don’t address other serious crimes, such as human trafficking, child abuse, and assault with a deadly weapon, which under state law, can be defined as either a misdemeanor or felony.

“How many more Kate Steinles do we need?” Stone asked.

About one-quarter of the U.S. population of illegals live in California,  according to a March report from the Public Policy Institute of California. And several cities, such as San Diego, Santa Clara, Monterey, and Los Angeles, already have “sanctuary city” policies.
