Senator Gaines Reacts To Governor's Signing Of Sanctuary State Bill

Thursday, October 5, 2017

SACRAMENTO – Senator Ted Gaines (R-El Dorado) today reacted to Governor Brown signing Senate Bill 54 (D-de León), a bill that will turn California into a “sanctuary state.”

“I want to know what other crimes California is going to ignore?

“Senate Bill 54 will quickly transform California into a giant magnet pulling every illegal alien criminal in the country to our state. It will teach a horrible lesson to our children that they need to be protected from law enforcement, not by it.

“Ignoring federal law isn’t federalism, it’s criminal. Who gets to come to and stay in this country is clearly a federal responsibility, no matter how many ill-advised laws California passes.”
