Late last week, the California Assembly passed a bill prohibiting state and local law enforcement from honoring most US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) requests to hold arrested illegal aliens for transfer to federal custody. If AB 1081 is signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown, California law enforcement will not even be required to detain illegal aliens convicted of or arrested for serious or violent felonies.
