California Senate approves bill protecting residents from deportation

California’s Senate has voted to to approve a bill that would protect local and state enforcement resources from assisting federal agencies such as ICE to deport illegal immigrants. Proponents of the bill argued that 70% of nationwide deportations happen with the cooperation of local enforcement agencies.

The bill, called the California Values Act, also ensures that the state’s residents have access to all vital public services such as schools, hospitals and police, regardless of their immigration status.
