California Legislature Advances ‘Sanctuary State’ Bill

California to be sanctuary state

The legislation, authored by state Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, is a direct response to President Donald Trump’s anti-immigration policies, specifically his executive order targeting federal funding for localities with pro-immigrant policies.
