The CA Legislature sent two bills to Governor Brown that will stengethen sanctuary protections statewide.
The first, Senate Bill 349, will prevent arrests or detention for civil immigration violations from occurring at any California court, declaring such an action by ICE or any other federal agency to constitute contempt of court.
The second, Senate Bill 244, will protect documents given to the Department of Motor vehicles or California hospitals to establish identity or residence, from being shared with any third party, including ICE, without a subpoena, warrant or court order.
Both bills were authored by Senator Ricardo Lara. California governor Jerry Brown has until September 30 to enact them into law.
