  • Bloggings: California Legislature Passes Anti-Detention Bill By Greg Siskind

    Bloggings on Immigration Law and Policy

    California Legislature Passes Anti-Detention Bill

    The California legislature has passed a bill that bars local law enforcement officials from detaining immigrants on federal deportation holds after they're released from criminal custody. The bar wouldn't apply to those who have committed serious felonies. The bill is now going to Governor Brown where it is expected to pass.

    The legislature is about to consider bills allowing deferred action beneficiaries to get driver's licenses as well as another to provide work permits to undocumented agricultural workers.

    Incidentally, California Democrats hold both US Senator seats, every statewide office including the Governor's office, 34 of 53 seats in the US House of Representatives, 25 of 40 seats in the State Senate, 53 of 80 seats in the State Assembly, Mayors in every large city except San Diego and no Republican has won the state's electoral votes since 1988. See a connection, Republicans?
