California Bill Protects Undocumented Immigrants Who Are Victims or Witnesses of Crime

The California State Assembly on Thursday passed a bill that prohibits law enforcement agencies from detaining for immigration purposes undocumented immigrants who are victims or witnesses of crime.

Bill AB493, sponsored by Assemblyman Reggie Jones-Sawyer, aims to allow immigrants to cooperate with law enforcement and report crimes without fear of getting detained for immigration violations.  

The bill will need to be passed by the state Senate and signed by Governor Jerry Brown before it becomes law.

Congratulations the State of California. You are most sensitive and creative state in the entire USA! The myopic and conservative states are found among the eastern states and the most conservative states and myopic sates are found in the South! These are the states where the KKK thrive and terrorize the minorities!
