ICE Warns It Will Conduct 'At-Large Arrests' in California Neighborhoods and Worksites

  • California Governor Signs Bill to Become Official 'Sanctuary State'

("Collateral" in this context typically means undocumented individuals who weren't specifically targeted by ICE for having a criminal record, but were instead detained while other targeted arrests were being made). There is strong symbolism in the move, although California governments' actions relative to individuals in the country illegally will change little in many parts of the state.

California now contains at least 35 cities that have sanctuary status, with several facing off with the federal government over Attorney General Jeff Sessions' attempts to block federal funding from sanctuary cities. Of course, unless California just seceded from the Union that's not really true. Brown on Thursday, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump's administration is spending every day trying to find a path forward on immigration. "The governor is simply wrong when he claims otherwise", Homan said. But they want more.

For many supporters of the sanctuary state bill, SB 54 did not go far enough.

"California's local law enforcement can not be commandeered and used by the Trump Administration to tear families apart, undermine our safety, and wreak havoc on our economy", de Leon said at a news conference in Los Angeles, which was posted on his official twitter page.

In the sharply worded statement from acting ICE director Tom Homan, the agency threatened "additional collateral arrests" in response to the new law, and said that it would "undermine public safety".

A spokesman for Gov.

Brown said federal immigration authorities are free to use their own resources to enforce immigration law and emphasized that the bill doesn't block them from interviewing immigrants in custody.

SB54 will negatively impact ICE operations in California by almost eliminating all cooperation and communication with our law enforcement partners in the state, voiding the delegated authority that the Orange County Sheriff's Office has under the 287g program, and prohibiting local law enforcement from contracting with the federal government to house detainees.

"I know Trump supporters don't get this from their news, but immigrants commit far fewer crimes than citizens".

The California Police Chiefs Association takes a neutral stand regarding the bill, the Sacramento Bee reported, adding that the sheriffs' organization remains against it and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions had publicly urged Brown to veto it.

Assembly Bill 540, by Assemblyman David Chiu, D-San Francisco, forbids employers from sharing personal information with federal agents about employees or granting immigration officers access to workplaces without proper court orders. The federal authorities will no longer be able to know the release date of those in detention, the bill states the authorities can only ask the release dates ahead if the person in detention has committed a serious or violent crime.

Homan's statement signaled, however, that ICE would not be deterred from its mission. "With every new threat and every new raid, ICE is showing itself to be the conduit for a blatantly racist deportation agenda".

Brown, the state's Democratic governor, said Thursday he believes SB 54 strikes a balance between protecting public safety and bringing a measure of comfort to the families now living in fear of deportation.
