Anderson Responds to Holder on California Sanctuary State Bill

Monday, June 19, 2017

State Senator Joel Anderson issued the following statement in response to former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s letter to Attorney General Sessions today asserting that California’s proposed sanctuary law, SB 54, is constitutional and follows federal law:

“Sadly, SB 54 continues to shield felons, like human traffickers and child or senior abusers, serving in our state prisons from deportation. While state law enforcement should not do federal work, they should not be working to help undocumented felons avoid deportation.”
