Did you hear CA is looking a passing an immigration law just like AZs?

Oh wait, they didn't have to, because their state law already SAYS THE SAME THING!

Section 834b in the California Penal Code: a) Every law enforcement agency in California shall fully cooperate with the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service regarding any person who is arrested if he or she is suspected of being present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws. (b) With respect to any such person who is arrested, and suspected of being present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws, every law enforcement agency shall do the following: (1) Attempt to verify the legal status of such person as a citizen of the United States, an alien lawfully admitted as a permanent resident, an alien lawfully admitted for a temporary period of time or as an alien who is present in the United States in violation of immigration laws

  • Munch--You're assuming that California law makers have actually READ or refreshed themselves on the laws that are ALREADY on the books! LOL

    Reading doesn't seem to be the mainstay of liberal politicians (or the public for that matter--based on the outrage in Arizona)

  • The verification process may include, but shall not be limited to, questioning the person regarding his or her date and place of birth, and entry into the United States, and demanding documentation to indicate his or her legal status

  • Notify the person of his or her apparent status as an alien who is present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws and inform him or her that, apart from any criminal justice proceedings, he or she must either obtain legal status or leave the United States. (3) Notify the Attorney General of California and the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service of the apparent illegal status and provide any additional information that may be requested by any other public entity. (c) Any legislative, administrative, or other action by a city, county, or other legally authorized local governmental entity with jurisdictional boundaries, or by a law enforcement agency, to prevent or limit the cooperation required by subdivision (a) is expressly prohibited.

  • Those who complained about AZ law being racist, are you know going to boycott CA as well? 


    Oh wait, you would have to boycott all 50 states, since federal law says the same thing.


    When will you admit this uproar was about nothing?

  • It truly makes you wonder about all those who screamed "racist" and thought people would be rounded up off the streets.

    Remember people on CM accusing AZ of "Show me your papers!" and "Nazi-state". Yeah, that is exactly what CA is like. Right.

    Talk about over-reaction.

  • Fact is EVERYONE has a law just like that. There is a national law that is just not enforced. I think it's important we make sure that it is enforced with the next President. It should be mandatory to get Conservative votes.
