Tuesday, December 6, 2016

SACRAMENTO - (INT) - State lawmakers have reconvened amid a flurry of proposed bills, some demanding immediate action.

Following the swearing-in of new and re-elected lawmakers, the Assembly and Senate joined together to take immediate action that could inoculate the potential impact of President-elect Donald Trump’s stated plans to deport up to 3 million undocumented residents. New bills were introduced to strengthen due process rights and protections for undocumented residents should President-elect Trump pursue overly aggressive immigration enforcement actions.
