On Wednesday, there was a federal court hearing on three of California’s “sanctuary state” immigration laws.

The laws in question: AB 450, which limits federal agent access to workplaces, SB 54. Which limits local law enforcement cooperation with ICE and AB 103, a law that allows state officials to inspect federal detention centers.

U.S. District Judge John A. Mendez was hearing the case, which may be appealed and be bumped up to the ninth circuit.

We check in with John Myers of the L.A. Times, who was at the federal court hearing yesterday.
