Tuesday, April 25, 2017

SACRAMENTO – California Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) issued the following statement in response to a federal judge’s ruling against President Trump’s order to withhold federal funds from jurisdictions that refuse to assist in the enforcement of immigration laws:

 “President Trump has tripped over the Constitution again. A federal judge has rightfully issued a constitutional victory for states, counties and cities. The state of California, along with our cities and counties like San Francisco and Santa Clara that value the contributions of their immigrant communities, will continue to protect all of our honest, hardworking residents against the cynical and destructive policies of this administration.”
