Skip to comments.California Law is Just Like Arizona Law (California Penal Code 834 b.)
Posted on 06/11/2010 12:28:36 AM PDT by truth_seeker
834b. (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. 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.
(2) 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.
Brings to question why all local law enforcement agencies are not on board, following the law.
Noting reference to Calif. Attorney General, questions concern Governor candidate Jerry Brown's role in following or NOT following Calif. Law? I know Costa Mesa has been following this, since 2005.
Trying the link again
Yeah, but they don’t follow the law in CA if they don’t like it !!!
Anything in that same penal code that specifically addresses California state legislators and employees who ignore the very laws they are supposed to enforce?
Now you’re trying to confuse them with facts!
All it would take is one person who has lost a loved one because of an illegal alien to file charges for accessory to murder. Then a wrongful death in civil court.
Nancy Pelosi will have to answer for more than we know.
The Eyes Of Truth...Enigma
Quick! Someone call the mayors of LA and SFO and tell them to launch a boycott—of themselves. Hypocrites.
I heard this last month on KFI as well.
Why isn’t the msm press reporting this?
Ha! Californocrits! Hyponias? Hypofornocrits?
It’s all a result of the Drive-By Media running off half cocked with half the distorted information.
This is a letter just received by one of our friends at NAFBPO in response to his letter to ARNOLD. Worthless.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me about Arizona’s
immigration law. I always appreciate hearing from fellow Californians
about the issues that are important to them.
As an immigrant, I can identify with the desire to come to this
country. The United States - a nation of immigrants and a nation of
laws - is the most generous nation in the world, but our generosity
cannot come at the expense of the American people or the security of
our international borders. The federal government’s failure to pass
comprehensive immigration reform is a reality we live with everyday in
our schools, workplaces and hospitals. We need federal action that
secures our border, protects taxpayers and creates a forward-looking
policy to meet the labor needs of our economy.
It is encouraging that President Obama is committed to providing more
resources to secure the border, and I look forward to seeing the final
proposal. Previous federal programs to provide additional resources
to the southwest border states have been successful, and I’ve been
lobbying the federal government to restore the funding needed to
provide more security along our border. We must find a permanent
solution to our broken immigration system, and I will continue to call
on the federal government to take action on comprehensive immigration
reform. Our borders must be secured, and our businesses must have the
employees they need but have been unable to find in our existing
Thank you again for adding your voice to this important issue. I
appreciate your input and will keep your thoughts in mind.
Active MSNBC poll!
In July, Arizona will begin enforcing a new law that requires law enforcement officers to check someones immigration status if they have reason to suspect that he or she is in the country illegally. Do you think this is a good idea?
