ICE Director: Arrests Coming To California Neighborhoods, Workplaces

De Leon said the Trump administration attempts to create division through fear-mongering. It blocks the deputization of police as immigration agents and bars state and local law enforcement agencies from inquiring into an individual's immigration status.

In a signing statement accompanying the bill, Brown explained that the bill also prohibits the federal government from using local authorities "to do the work of immigration agents".

Instead, the officers must try to arrest them at their homes or jobs out in the community - where their family or other illegal immigrants around them could also be arrested.

Last month, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions publicly urged Brown to veto the bill, calling it "unconscionable".

Last month, federal agents arrested almost 500 immigrants in sanctuary cities and towns, including Baltimore and the District of Columbia, and vowed to return "every week" if they refuse to cooperate.

This is not the first time the nation's most populous state has defied the federal government.

The California State Sheriff's Association strongly opposed SB 54 saying, among other things, it protects so-called non-violent offenders including gang members, drug dealers and sex offenders from deportation. Since then, 29 states and the District of Columbia have passed laws legalizing marijuana in some form.

Meanwhile a number of legal challenges - both for and against sanctuary cities - are making their way through the federal courts. Only immigrants who have been convicted of certain crimes - mostly felonies and misdemeanors that can be charged as felonies, but not minor offenses - will be transferred to immigration authorities. And all law enforcement agencies will have to produce annual reports on their participation in task forces that involve federal agencies, as well as on the people they transfer to immigration authorities.

"California lawmakers are drawing their strength not from Trump, but from migrants who display a great deal of courage every single day", Alvarado said.

54, called by media as the "Sanctuary State" bill, was introduced by Democratic Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon on December 5 a year ago, weeks after the 2016 presidential election, to defy Donald Trump's campaign pledge to tighten immigration policy. "That's not fake news, but the Trump administration doesn't want you to understand that", De Leon said.

Pablo Alvarado, director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, said Trump seeks to cause distrust for political gain. "And I hope that California will push back on their governor's, I think, irresponsible decision moving forward".

A number of cities in California, such as Los Angeles and San Francisco, have already banned police officers from collaborating with ICE on operations to capture undocumented immigrants.

"This action protects public safety and ensures hard-working people who contribute to our state are respected", Brown said in a statement.
