California Now Sanctuary State

Oct 7, 2017

Governor Jerry Brown signed a package of laws that protect illegal aliens. Landlords will be barred from “disclosing information about immigration status in order to intimidate, harass or evict tenants without following proper procedures.” Immigrants would be allowed to sue civilly if landlord violate their rights. Additionally, “no state office or entity in California [can] compel a landlord to obtain and disclose information on a tenant’s immigration status.” State legislators don’t want Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to enforce current federal law on illegal immigration. Assemblyman David Chiu said, “Trump’s escalating war on immigrants is ripping apart families and mass deportations could be our new reality.” The effect of the new laws puts the “interests of illegal aliens first, ahead of legal, law-abiding California citizens,” wrote former California Assemblyman Tim Donnelly.
