California's "Anti-Arizona Law" Meant to Protect Undocumented Immigrants From Deportation

The California State Senate passed a bill Thursday that is being called the "anti-Arizona law" by pro-immigrant activists.

The TRUST Act, as it is officially known, would set higher standards for placing immigration detainers on suspected undocumented immigrants when they are arrested by local police.

California participates in the federal program known as Secure Communities. When local police arrest a suspect he or she is background-checked against the FBI's criminal database to determine if the detainee has a criminal record and is unlawfully present or otherwise removable.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement then decides if it wants to put a "hold" on the detainee, so local cops do not release the individual until he or she is interviewed by ICE. 

Ultimately, ICE determines whether to place the person in deportation proceedings based on a number of factors.

The bill still needs the California Assembly's final approval and Governor Jerry Brown's blessing for it to become law. 

But if it does become law it would not allow California police to turn over suspected illegal immigrants to ICE unless the person has been convicted of a violent crime.

Ironically, this would put into practice the Obama administration's stated policy of prioritizing the removal of aliens convicted of serious crimes, a policy pro-immigrant activists claim is more lip service than reality.

The California Law DOES NOT change or modify what the Feds have instituted as THEIR POLICY, it mirrors EXACTLY what the Feds wants so no, no lawsuit, unlike Arizona's law that CHANGED and ADDED several key points that were NOT in the Federal Law, it made it a crime to be in the state undocumented when in FACT the FEDERAL LAW CLEARLY STATES that a person residing in the country without permission of guilty of a CIVIL MISDEAMENOR. P.S. Nice of you to translate your name into Spanish, George.

California is actually not that bad a place. A buddy of mine took a $100,000/year job in CA when he was making about $25,000 in Arizona.

Good strategy! Jerry Brown we need this plan put in place here in AZ. Jan Brewer is overwhelmed and is embarrassing us!

Good point!  If the law passes, the DOJ must sue California for interference of federal immigration policy.

It will never become law because police in California cannot dictate what ICE can or cannot do.  Jailers cannot release any prisoner with an ICE detainer.

WHISTLE BLOWER TELLS OF ILLEGAL ALIENS DEFRAUDING TAX PAYERS.   Although the truth seems to remain subdued, the illegal alien child tax credit is ready to resurface. My guess the IRS, the Obama administration prefer the truth not to come out.  This however is a very serious situation, especially when Whistle-Blower steps forward and tell the truth about this disgraceful state of affairs.  This is an article from the NumbersUSA website, which the open border fanatics would certainly not want you to see:   The Treasury Department’s Inspector General determined that $4.2 billion was paid in 2010, up from less than $1 billion in 2005. Leading Democrats are resisting a bill that would stop future payments. YOU MIGHT DEMAND FROM THE OBAMA INJUSTICE DEPARTMENT, WHY ARETHEY PURSUING ARIZONA, ALABAMA, GEORGIA, UTAH, SOUTH CAROLINA AND SOME OF THE OTHER STATES, WHEN THEY ARE  TRYING TO PROTECT THEIR LAWFUL INHABITANTS FROM THE ILLEGAL ALIEN FINANCIAL INVASION?   In WTHR’s latest report on Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) abuse and fraud, the Indianapolis NBC affiliate discussed revelations brought forward by an IRS whistleblower - "We were being told by upper management to ignore fraud, to assign ITIN numbers and...Pay out refunds to people who are laying…It's a license to steal when you allow that."   Howard Antelis, a tax examiner at the IRS's ITIN processing center in Texas, contacted WTHR after seeing its series on ITIN fraud. He and other tax examiners said that IRS managers, for years, instructed them to "look the other way" while processing ITIN applications that appear to be fraudulent – even if they contain clear signs of criminal activity.   One time, Howard decided to investigate ITIN applications for dozens of children attending the same school in South Carolina. (Adult tax filers can request an ITIN for a child in order to get child tax credits and a larger tax refund.) He discovered the school didn't exist, but his bosses ordered him to approve the scam applications anyway.   Howard said, "We're tax examiners but the truth is we're not supposed to look into anything…It's like an assembly line…Get it out of here and don't worry about the fraud. Fraud slows us down…We're supposed to protect taxpayers, so somebody had to say something." He decided to call the Inspector General's office in Washington, D.C.   The IG's office sent auditors to interview Howard and other tax examiners. They learned that IRS employees were actually encouraged to ignore signs of fraud. The final report on the investigation, which took over a year, will be released this summer. It's expected to show that millions of illegal aliens can get ITINs by filing fraudulent paperwork.   "It's pure negligence by management and they've been trying to keep it quiet," Howard said. "There is a criminal element that is defrauding the U.S. government by filing mountains and mountains of these fraudulent applications…[The IRS managers] don't want to deal with it. That's where all the fraud is. The fraud is in the fake notary stamps and fake documents which we've been accepting…There is a state-by-state list of notaries that shows which are registered and legitimate, but the IRS won't let us check those registries."   After WTHR first reported on ITIN mismanagement and fraud, the IRS sent senior officials to investigate the ITIN processing center. WTHR says this has led to tax examiners getting more training on identifying fraudulent paperwork and equipment to help them better inspect documents. Also, illegal aliens must now prove their identity through original, certified documents.   Howard’s revelations did not come without a cost to him personally. The IRS dropped his job performance rating, which affects his paycheck. The IRS claimed his job performance dropped from "exceeds fully successful" to "minimally successful." Still, Howard wants to continue his fight for ITIN reform. "I just want to see things fixed. We've been allowing the U.S. taxpayer to get robbed for years now and those days appear to be over."   If we are ever going to get out of this $16 trillion dollar mess, both party incumbents need to be thrown out of office. The only sanity left in Washington is the slow but growing group of Constitutional TEA PARTY leaders, who should replace not only the Democrats, but the majority of Republicans who don’t comply with the ‘Rule of Law’. If we just vote for the same mixture of low key criminals, we will never recover from the issues that plague us? Whether it’s the 20 million illegal aliens and the strong criminal element amongst us, they should not be rewarded for breaking our laws; the law abiding citizen and green card holder are carrying with financial support billions of dollars annually.  Nor should we forget the state, county and municipal governments, who are just as guilty in stealing, tax payer’s money, to support the illegal alien invasion.  Join the growing millions of TEA PARTY members at your local chapter, as this is the only way America can survive. WELFARE COSTS FOR CHILDREN OF ILLEGAL ALIENS EXCEEDS $646 MILLION IN JUST LOS ANGELES COUNTY ALONE– CAN YOU EVEN COMPREHEND THAT FIGURE?   SPEAK UP AND DON’T LET THESE MENTAL INCOMPETENT FOOLS GET AWAY WITH THESE LIES. NOT ONLY ILLEGAL ALIENS PILFERING EACH OF THE 50 STATES WELFARE, FOOD STAMPS, PUBLIC HOUSING, EDUCATION, HEALTH CARE, BUT NOW STEALING OUR TAX MONEY.   E-Verify are still currently voluntary, but if it were made mandatory, illegal migrants and immigrants would be locked out of the mainstream workforce, and change to the Birthright citizenship bill. A simple amendment would halt forever illegal aliens coming here and taking advantage by using their unborn children as a right to citizenship welfare. If E-VERIFY were passed by Washington as permanent and an amendment to the BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP ACT, it would definitely stem the millions of foreign pregnant Mothers who come here draining states and federal treasuries. You the voter have the power to stop the THEFT of your taxes.   I have no sympathy for the population of California, as they keep on voting for the same clowns in Sacramento with the approval of the head Clown Governor Jerry Brown signed what is called the anti-Arizona law. But remember in States where there is little or no    enforcement of voting laws such as the Socialist-Marxist –Liberal state of California—ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE VOTING. What is going to happen now with this ‘Sanctuary state’ is millions of illegal alien families are going to converge on California, as its open day for public welfare and other services.  In 2006 illegal aliens withdrew $1 billion dollars in state uncompensated assistance and that doesn’t include education.   NO COPYRIGHT.

LMAO was ignoring 400 + sex crimes to go after said illegals doing his jobs? Was charging judges who didnt vote his way with RICO charges that he had no evidence of doing his job? Was allowing the tampering/destruction of evidence with investigations of the many deaths in his jails doing his job? (and here i thought murder should be investigated properly, silly me) Was "misspending" nearly 100 million dollars doing his job? Was clearing 75% of their cases by exception doing their job? (keep in mind, that means they only really closed at max 25%) Is averaging 45 minutes to calls in their patrol areas, which they get millions to do, doing their jobs? You see a trend here grandma? I can gladly keep going if you like....
