California’s AG Xavier Becerra vowed that his office is looking to prosecute employers who dare to cooperate with ICE/federal immigration officials to deport criminal illegal immigrants from the US. The ultra-progressive and pro open border Democrat has said during a presser on Thursday that California now has new laws which ban businesses from providing help/information on illegal immigrants to ICE, intel which may help the federal agency with deportations/raids etc.

As per a NTK Network report, California’s Attorney General has said:
There are new laws in place in California now in 2018 with the advent of 2018. I mentioned two of them specifically, AB 450 and SB 54. AB 450 in particular deals with the workplace in particular and how we go about treating the information about the workplace and employees at the workplace by employers.What we’re trying to make sure is that employers are aware that in 2018, there is a new law in place. We will prosecute those who violate [California] law.
AB 450 bars employers from re-verifying an employee’s immigration status and from “providing voluntary consent to an immigration enforcement agent to enter nonpublic areas of a place of labor unless the agent provides a judicial warrant, except as specified.” California is now a de-facto sanctuary state under SB 54, which means public employees/officials are banned from turning over criminal illegal immigrants to ICE officials/agents.
Considering the latest developments, one may wonder if California is still part of the Union. I mean, prosecute business owners who obey Federal Law? This is what the 1965 immigration bill gave us. Anyone delusional enough to think this country survives exactly the way it is 20 years from now needs to have their meds checked.
First, what grounds does this AG have to prosecute? A state law that supersedes a Federal law. The Constitution is clear on who has the jurisdiction on immigration issues. What’s an employer to do? Clearly follow the federal law or be thinking in a Federal prison. I’m pretty sure the California AG is talking treason here.
