Governor Brown on U.S. Attorney General’s Plans to Sue Over Sanctuary State Legislation

Sacramento, CA...Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today issued the following statement on U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ announcement that he will file suit to block California legislation: “At a time of unprecedented political turmoil, Jeff Sessions has come to California to further divide and polarize America. Jeff, these political stunts may be the norm in Washington, but they don’t work here. SAD!!!”




The text of Governor Brown’s Senate Bill 54 signing message – issued last October – is copied below and clearly spells out what California law does and doesn’t do:

October 5, 2017

To the Members of the California State Senate:

I am signing Senate Bill 54, the California Values Act.

This bill states that local authorities will not ask about immigration status during routine interactions. It also bans unconstitutional detainer requests and prohibits the commandeering of local officials to do the work of immigration agents. The bill further directs our Attorney General to promulgate model policies for local and state health, education, labor and judiciary officials to follow when they deal with immigration matters.

In enshrining these new protections, it is important to note what the bill does not do. This bill does not prevent or prohibit Immigration and Customs Enforcement or the Department of Homeland Security from doing their own work in any way. They are free to use their own considerable resources to enforce federal immigration law in California. Moreover, the bill does not prohibit sheriffs from granting immigration authorities access to California jails to conduct routine interviews, nor does it prevent cooperation in deportation proceedings for anyone in state prison or for those in local jails for any of the hundreds of serious offenses listed in the TRUST Act.

These are uncertain times for undocumented Californians and their families, and this bill strikes a balance that will protect public safety, while bringing a measure of comfort to those families who are now living in fear every day.

Sincerely,

Edmund G. Brown Jr.

Dividing
Posted on: 2018-03-07 03:20:26   By: Anonymous
 
Jeff Sessions wants to divide law-abiding citizens from law-breaking people (I almost said 'citizens" but they are not). Jerry Brown is always trying to keep the two groups together.

History shows that dividing the two groups works better for the law-abiding group.

It's about time action is taken to bring the renegade and lawless state of Commiefornia into compliance with federal law. Libiots want to have it both ways. Commiefornia gets to ignore federal immigration law, while Arizona, trying to enforce federal immigration law, gets sued by the Obama DOJ. Moonbeam and Moonbean are going to run as fast as they can to the lawless 9th Circus Court of Clapping Seals where any and all law justice are quickly disregarded in favor of anarchy.

Most of the "illegals" rounded up by ICE in recent days were workers on farms. This is a conversation we've never adequately had - the fact that large farms depend on migrant workers to harvest the crops. It's not like our children are going to pick strawberries and lettuce. And guess what - you wouldn't be willing to pay the resulting $5 an avocado.

    "Most of the "illegals" rounded up by ICE in recent days were workers on farms."

    Of the 234 illegals arrested, 180 were either convicted criminals or had been issued a final order of removal and failed to depart the U.S.
    115 had prior felony convictions such as child sex crimes, assault, weapons charges, battery, burglary, d.u.i., etc., etc, etc.

    Yep, this sounds like the type of people we want in our neighborhood....

    WAKE THE FK UP BEFORE IT"S TOO LATE.

Guess what, if strawberries go to 20.00 dollars a basket, grapes go to $50.00 a lug something is going to have to give! This state is full of corporate farms owned by Drs. , lawyers, wealthy sports people, they could care less what you pay for the finished product! The pay to pick, prune irrigate , and so on is going to have to go up, and people that never thought they would take these jobs will be out there pruning and picking when they get paid justly todo so! Check and see who owns all the new almond orchards around Oakdale, Oprah, Conoleceza Rice, some of the 49er's, Raider's, it's a fact!

    You forgot to mention that most of the almonds, walnuts, and pistachios grown in California are shipped out of the country for a higher dollar than they can be sold here. The amount of irrigation taken to produce nut crops for other countries ends up taking away the quality of life for everyone in California. Most all of the lower dollar crops we eat daily (salads, vegetables) found at our grocery store are from Mexico. Farm irrigation water should first go to crops that feed our state.
