What will happen if California becomes a sanctuary state.
A very complicated subject with no easy answers. I would assume California would lose Federal Funding for most everything if they were to do this. That would have a serious impact on the citizens. They would be forced to make up the difference somehow, most likely by raising taxes.
I would honestly hate to see them take a drastic step such as this. The citizens of California would suffer because of this.
Norma, Senate Bill 54, if it passes will only affect the local authorities who before the bill passes are required to hold non-citizens/illegals who are in their custody and call U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), but California cannot stop federal immigration officers from conducting raids to deport people who are here illegally.
Becoming a Sanctuary state only limits/prohibits cooperation with Customs officials, but I do not believe that the local authorities would interfere with ICE’s raids or deportation.
You missed the point of the question. It concerns Illegal Aliens Convicted and served time in US prisons and jails. What is the value not cooperating with ICE to deport them? Many of these are gang members, and many working to the drug cartels
brad, I didn't miss the point. ICE wants the police of the state of CA to do their job for them i.e. apprehend illegal immigrants and the job of state police and local authorities is the protection of all citizens, not policing for ICE!
One reason ICE wants the states to do their job for them is cuz then the states pay the bill & it doesn't come out of ICE budget. So-called sanctuary cities have always cooperated with ICE when it comes to known criminals, not mere jay walkers.
California has become part of Mexico in the last forty years Illegal Aliens are given de facto US citizenship. These Aliens are allowed to openly protest in the streets of Los Angeles and burn US flags, while flying their Mexican flag, and DEMANDING freebies and citizen status.
What is wrong with any US state, or local government that would Protect Illegal Aliens that have been Convicted of felonies and spent time in US jails and prisons. Why would they want to keep these known Illegal felons in the US, instead of deporting them.
And these illegals have broken federal laws, and why shouldn't the state, and local governments want to honor these federal laws?
They are also the ones that gave Hillary the popular vote because they are allowed to vote.
And if California would have Voter ID we would be able to prove it. The hispanic population in CA is equal to or greater than the white population.
California will never have voter ID period.
I agree. BTW look at the The REAL ID Act 2005, and why can't that be made applicable to voting. I need to show ID to get a library card from my local library?? Doesn't that discriminate??

Can the courts make providing sanctuary to illegal aliens permissible, or is it aiding/abetting?

What do you all think about this one? Seems like some good fodder for my fellow hubbers.
