Trump's Choice for ICE Leader Suggests Criminal Charges against Sanctuary Cities

"If he [Brown] thinks he's protecting immigrant communities, he's doing quite the opposite".

The law is not popular with law enforcement officers, but Brown said it will bring a "measure of comfort" to illegal aliens who are afraid of being deported. In November, a District Court judge in California became the latest to block enforcement of an executive order by President Donald Trump that would prevent certain federal funds from reaching sanctuary cities. Kevin de Léon, the California State Senate leader and author of the bill, told The Independent in an email. It also requires notification to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement of scheduled releases of people who have been convicted of violent felonies.

Second, ICE will continue to see who is arrested.

A California man whose son was killed by an illegal immigrant is taking action against California sanctuary city law. Undocumented immigrants still may face deportation if they have committed crimes or are swept up in raids by federal agents at workplaces, in neighborhoods or other venues or are arrested individually. "If we haven't done so already, Caltrans crews will take steps to remove them". Some police officials, including the chief of police in Los Angeles, endorsed the law for this reason.

"Part of the new state law is that schools, courthouses and hospitals are safe zones", said Cook. Jerry Brown signed SB-54 a year ago, which restricts cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities. Previously, state and local authorities could use their discretion in many circumstances. The more serious crimes don't have a time limit.

"They certainly know where to find me", Steinberg said. U.S. courts have repeatedly held feds can't force states/localities to do Trump's bidding on draconian deportation tactics. He also urged the Justice Department to look into whether state officials can be criminally charged for violating federal law. But the federal government's ability to act on that threat has been tied up by various courts in recent months.

Law enforcement agencies would be prohibited from asking about immigration status, giving federal immigration authorities access to interview a person in custody or assisting them in immigration enforcement, according to the bill.
