State Senate Passes Bill to Make California A "Sanctuary State"

Apr 4, 2017

Senate President Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles, author of the sanctuary city bill, SB54, said the state must protect its immigrant communities and ensure those living in the country without documentation.

Lawmakers in the state Senate voted along party lines Monday to pass a bill that would prevent state and local law enforcement from using their resources to aid federal immigration enforcement.
