California Governor Jerry Brown has signed several bills regarding immigration laws.

Governor Jerry Brown signed the ‘Trust Act’ yesterday, which prohibits the LAPD and other local law enforcement agencies from detaining people for deportation if they are arrested for a misdemeanor.

The bill is one of a number of immigration-related laws the governor signed in the last couple of weeks, including one that would provide special driver’s licenses for undocumented Californians. The governor, however, vetoed a bill that would have let non-citizens serve on juries. Here to tell us more about the immigration-related bills that the governor signed--and did not sign--is KPCC’s Leslie Berestein Rojas.
