The TRUST Act, passed by the California state Assembly, awaits a vote by the state Senate.
California lawmakers are considering a new bill [The TRUST Act] that could create a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants seeking protection from Arizona’s strict immigration law.
The Transparency and Responsibility Using State Tools, or TRUST Act, which is currently making its way through the California legislature, would prohibit local law enforcement from turning over illegal immigrants for deportation except for those with serious felony convictions.
Debate over the bill comes after the nation’s highest court last month upheld the most controversial provision of the Arizona immigration law — requiring local police to check the immigration status of anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally. Federal immigration officials have said they will be selective in responding to those calls and have already moved to shield some categories of illegal immigrants nationwide from deportation, but the provision is still on the books in Arizona.
