#SanctuaryState bill headed to Brown

California lawmakers early Saturday sent Gov. Jerry Brown a “sanctuary state” immigration bill that he is expected to sign after demanding changes that some advocates said weaken its impact.

Senate Bill 54 will place limitations on how state and local law enforcement officials can communicate and coordinate with federal immigration authorities. Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León said the measure “is needed now more than ever” in light of President Donald Trump’s decision to step up immigration enforcement and end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
