Who needs a hard #CalExit when California can enjoy all the benefits of being part of the United States while rejecting the authority of the Federal government where it conflicts with the politics of the Sacramento Dem junta.
And so California business owners are greeted with the bizarre spectacle of being threatened by the Attorney General of their state if they cooperate with the Attorney General of the United States.
We haven't seen anything like this since the civil rights movement.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra warned employers Thursday of legal repercussions if they assist federal immigration officials in an impending crackdown in the sanctuary state, The Sacramento Bee reported.
Under a new state law – the Immigration Worker Protection Act – employers and businesses could face fines of up to $10,000 if they provide employee information to U.S. Immigration Customs, Becerra said.
If employers “start giving up information about their employees or access to their employees in ways that contradict our new California laws, they subject themselves to actions by my office. We will prosecute those who violate the law,” he said at a news conference.
Under Obama, states were told that they weren't allowed to enforce immigration laws. Now, states are actively threatening businesses that comply with Federal enforcement of immigration laws.
According to leftist judges, states don't have the right to enforce immigration laws, but do have the right to prevent them from being enforced. The obvious conclusion is that the left just believes that enforcing immigration law is illegal.
