Jerry Brown recently signed into law a bill that prohibits California law enforcement agencies the authority to hand over illegal aliens unless the aliens have committed a major crime.
This will make the federal government’s border patrol, and the immigration control organization, the major source of any arrests. They will get no further cooperation from California law enforcement authorities.
Any private employer who threatens an illegal immigrant with deportation can lose his business license.
Illegal immigrants are also entitled to get driver’s licenses. This was another law signed by Gov. Brown.
Still another law offers this career opportunity: if an illegal immigrant goes to law school and earns a degree, and then passes the bar exam, he can become a licensed lawyer. Brown just signed a law to this effect.
So, other states now have an opportunity to re-direct illegal immigrants to California. State officials can provide bus fairs to California for illegals caught in their states. The illegals will be given a choice of final destinations in California: Los Angeles, San Francisco, Riverside, or Sacramento.
Brochures in Spanish can be provided with a summary of the new laws in California. Call it the “California, here we come” program.
States could eliminate most of the costs associated with arresting, processing, and transporting illegals back to Mexico. The deportees may try to cross over again. Far better to provide information on career opportunities in California.
Arrested illegals would be given a choice: Mexico or California.
