Jerry Brown Signs Bill Making CA Sanctuary State for Most Illegals

On Saturday, California Governor Jerry Brown (D) signed a bill that will ban state authorities from transferring illegal immigrants they arrest to federal law enforcement for potential deportation if those illegal immigrants have not committed “serious crimes.”  

Brown signed the “Trust Act” into law after he had vetoed similar legislation last year. Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and former Homeland Security Secretary and current University of California President Janet Napolitano expressed their support for the bill to Brown.

“While Washington waffles on immigration, California’s forging ahead,” Brown said. “I’m not waiting.”

According the Los Angeles Times, immigration activists cheered Brown–who also signed legislation that will allow illegal immigrants to get driver’s licenses–at rallies in California on Saturday after he signed the bill.
