California Governor Signs Bill to Put Immigration Enforcement in Hands of Illegal Aliens

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Map of California StateCalifornia Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 2792 (AB 2792) on Wednesday, to allow criminal aliens in law enforcement custody to refuse any interview with federal immigration.  By giving criminal aliens the ability to opt out of a meeting with ICE, AB 2792 essentially allows even the most dangerous criminal aliens to be released back into California communities after their sentences are served.

California law already requires state and local law enforcement officials to refuse cooperation with ICE in almost all cases, unless the criminal alien has been convicted of a serious or violent crime. AB 2792, however, goes farther and requires state and local law enforcement officers to provide any criminal alien in custody notice that an interview with ICE is optional and gives them the ability to refuse any interaction with ICE while in law enforcement custody. By doing so, AB 2792 essentially allows deportable aliens to choose whether ICE has access to law enforcement facilities and allows criminal aliens the ability avoid the enforcement of immigration law.

Despite serious public safety concerns regarding the failure to enforce immigration law against convicted criminals, Governor Brown categorized AB 2792’s passage as a “measured approach to due process and transparency principles.”  ICE has yet to comment on the bill.

    How ignorant is this? First thing CA needs to do is GET RID OF JERRY BROWN First… Illegals next

    Jerry Brown is senile and needs to step down. He is not concerned about the welfare of the State of California, he is only concerned about the benefit he received from being in office. As far as Mexicans in California is concerned the state is already a lost cause forget it. California continues it’s downward death spiral.The majority of the population is now Mexican in the State.. Sorry California, it won’t be long before they own the legislature. The people of California are the only ones to blame for this, they let this happen with their liberal agenda policies.

    This is unconstitutional. It is replacing federal law about foreign dealings with state law.

    Our governor needs to be impeached. He passes laws that most Californians would object to. Another politician who thinks he knows better than the people. This is why we vote. Trump 2016 for a safe US

    Does this mean DOJ / DHS is able to withhold funds from them as they are not allowing federal law to be abided by? We would sure like to see money withheld from sanctuary cities / states.

    You have to check YouTube because there is proof that Hillary cheated during the debate by using what may be a small
    teleprompter. There are other things that was seen during the debate that is on both YouTube and Facebook. That’s why she kept such a smug look on her face through most of the debate she also looked to me like she was reading something because she kept looking down between questions.

    I am ,as are many people are ,sick and tired of illegals coming into this country and not vetted as they say, a thorough investigation on “everyone” bar none, who are sneaking or coming into this country from a foreign country, should be thoroughly investigated, and as I see it ,our future as a free country is at stake. I am so leary of what this country is becoming, with all these illegals coming in and receiving all they need at taxpayer exspense that it does not seem like the country I was born in. and to me that is a death knell of this great, formerly free country. that’s a misnomer now and will continue to get seriously worse if this condition goes on as it is right now. say goddby to AMERICA. it was nice knowing you”

      Did you see the story of Mary Campos of Los Angeles, a million mile flier with United. She showed up for a flight and was told she had been moved from her assigned seat. When she asked why they told her two Pakistani men refused to sit next to a woman. The answer to them should have been you can find other transportation.

      This is why we need NeverHillary. She will continue the same appointments of leftist judges who likely will be defending the “rights” of these foreign citizens to demand that. If Trump resigns or get impeached after 6 mos, that means we have Pence. I can easily live with that, just not her.

      There was also that tape recording just released of her when she thought she was speaking off the record back in February. She said millenials “are living in their parent’s basements” and they expect “free college education” which we can’t afford. But in the last couple weeks she’s proposed free tuition for nearly 90% of them. Just another example that she has no scruples and will say whatever it takes to get a vote.

        So Hillary wants taxpayers to pay for free STEM degrees for young Americans, while simultaneously supporting bringing in cheap foreign H-1B workers to take the jobs we are paying to train them for. Wouldn’t it be a lot cheaper for American students to skip the step of earning a STEM degree, and start working at Starbucks as soon as they graduate from high school, instead of earning a STEM degree and then getting a job at Starbucks?

        Also, does Hillary want to pay all of the costs for the thousands of students from China at our universities, a number of whom are here to steal our technology? And some of them are learning skills they will take back to China and use to build our competitors as well as weapons designed to fight the US military.

        As one related example, Taiwan’s semiconductor industry was built by students from Taiwan that graduated from Stanford’s engineering school and then returned to Taiwan after they graduated. So we used one of our top engineering schools to build our competitors in Taiwan, a country we now have a trade deficit with. Yeah, we’re smart.

          She has never directly said she would reduce H1B visas, like Trump has. She never says anything til she’s forced into it, like the TPP trade deal, which she previously supported.

          Just as an example of how everything she does is so calculated, a few months ago when the Senate held those hearings on laid off Disney tech workers, she put out a statement saying their stories were “heartbreaking” without saying she would reduce the visa workers who replaced them. She’s as superficial and scripted as the average Hollywood blockbuster. Lots of shiny special effects but no real plot line when you get down to it.

    Well well well, what’s this? Remember when Trump said his mic had problems and Hillary made her mocking comments, which the media repeated continuously? Turns out he was right. Let’s see if this gets an equal amount of media attention:

    “Regarding the first debate, there were problems regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall,” the Commission on Presidential Debates said today.

    Deliberate? Probably not, but would I be floored if it was? No, because liberals justify anything since everyone but them is an ignorant rube. Only THEY should decide.

    Case in point, California. Illegals can break any law they like, steal anyone’s identity, and it’s perfectly fine with the voters of that state. The state is out of water, housing prices are unaffordable except for the rich like Zuckerberg who just buys up an entire block to keep the peasants away, and roads are gridlock all day, and they insist all this is not a by product of an increasing population fueled by immigration. Zuckerberg also recently put up his own wall across his property in Hawaii, to the complaints of long time residents who said it cut off their view of the water.

    There was a recent $ 22 million settlement in Palm Beach Gardens Fl between residents of the San Matera condos and builder Kolter Homes because of leaks in roofs, walls and windows that have ruined their homes. This is becoming an extremely common problem across this country. These builders thought is was so smart to hire illegals for nothing and that drove the long time experienced American workers out of the business.

    Trump needs to start running ads showing Hillary’s hypocrisy. About how she said in 2003 “I am, you know, adamant against illegal immigrants.” Plus she voted for the Secure Fence Act of 2006 which mandated 700 miles of double layer fence along the border, which is a wall by any definition.
