California Values Act signed into law, makes California a sanctuary state

California Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 54, the California Values Act. [Signing Statement] The Act, reportedly the most far-reaching of its kind in the country, forbids local and state law enforcement officers from carrying out practices such as asking about someone’s immigration status, handing a person over to federal immigration authorities if there’s no warrant or establishment of probable cause and disclosing personal information about someone if it isn’t already public information. The law also prevents local and state law enforcement from detaining someone over an immigration hold request. — Joe
