California Sheriffs Oppose Bill on Illegal Immigrants
"Some California sheriffs are pushing back against a proposed state law that would bar law enforcement officers from detaining illegal immigrants for deportation if they have not been charged with serious or violent crimes. The bill, which the Legislature sent on Friday to Gov. Jerry Brown, would create what opponents have called a "sanctuary" for illegal immigrants statewide. It sets up a new fight over immigration enforcement that comes as Republicans vow at their national convention in Florida to impose sanctions on states, cities and counties that adopt similar measures," Post-Gazette.com writes.
