It’s the Trog-style Free State Project, illegal immigration edition
Or it will be. Once again, California proves that no policy is too liberal for them:
In response to the Supreme Court’s ruling on Arizona’s SB 1070 law earlier this month, in which the justices (minus Kagan, who recused) unanimously upheld its core provision, the state of California is looking to reverse the trend of states cracking down on illegal immigration. On Thursday, the state senate passed a bill that would instead shield illegal immigrants from status checks.
They will, however, be checking to see who came from Arizona. Because some people you just wanna keep an eye on.
The Democrat-led state Senate voted 21 to 13 to approve the California Trust Act, dubbed by supporters as the “anti-Arizona” bill.
The “California Trust Act?” What does that even mean?
It blocks local police from referring a detainee to immigration officials for deportation unless that person has been convicted of a violent or serious felony.
“Today’s vote signals to the nation that California cannot afford to be another Arizona,” Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, a Democrat who sponsored the measure, said in a statement…
“Can’t afford to be another Arizona.” But they can afford to support all the international trespassers they’ll attract by doing this.
On the other hand, California’s economy is heading south faster than a Mexican national who just realized he can make a better living back home than in California. So maybe this Assemblyman Ammiano is just taking advantage for a little risk-free political correctness.
