The California legislature is considering making the entire state a so-called “sanctuary” for immigrants here illegally.
Several California cities, like Los Angeles and San Francisco, have policies sharply limiting cooperation between their police and federal immigration authorities. Under a bill introduced by Democratic state senate president pro tem, Kevin de Leon of LA, such a policy would extend statewide. But non-sanctuary parts of California don’t like the idea. We hear two perspectives on the issue.
Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles), California Senate President Pro Tem and State Senator representing the state’s 24th District; he introduced Senate Bill 54
Jeff Stone (R-Murrieta), State Senator for California’s 28th State Senate district, including Indio, Murrieta, Palm Springs, and other parts of Riverside County, and a member of the Senate Budget Committee
