    Jerry Brown vetoes 'Trust Act' bill targeting immigration holds

    Jerry Brown vetoes 'Trust Act' bill targeting immigration holds

    Gov. Jerry Brown has vetoed legislation designed to curtail the deportation of undocumented immmigrants arrested on minor or non-violent offenses.

    Assembly Bill 1081 would have prohibited local law enforcement agencies from holding arrestees for federal immigration authorities unless the crime or conviction involved a serious or violent felony.

    Known by supporters as the "Trust Act," the measure was touted by its author, Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, as a way to save money and police time by limiting use of local jails for immigration enforcement, an obligation of the federal government.


    Brown, in vetoing AB 1081, applauded the role that undocumented immigrants play in the state's economy and expressed support for comprehensive immigration reform, including a path to citizenship.

    "Until we have immigration reform, federal agents shouldn't try to
    coerce local law enforcement officers into detaining people who've been picked up for minor offenses and pose no reasonable threat to their community," Brown wrote in his veto message.

    But Ammiano's bill was flawed because its definition of serious or violent omitted many major crimes, he said.

    "For example, the bill would bar local cooperation even when the person arrested has been convicted of certain crimes involving child abuse, drug trafficking, selling weapons, using children to sell drugs, or gangs," Brown wrote.

    "I believe it's unwise to interfere with a sheriff's discretion to comply with a detainer issued for people with these kinds of troubling criminal records," he concluded.

    Brown vowed to work with the Legislature to correct such deficiencies and craft a law that he can sign in the future.

    Ammiano, D-San Francisco, had hailed AB 1081 as California's counter to a controversial Arizona law, upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, that allows police to check the immigration status of people they stop in the normal course of their duties.

    AB 1081 would have curtailed the practice of local law enforcement agencies holding an arrestee who is an undocumented immigrant for 48 hours upon request by immigration authorities for possible deportation.

    Ammiano contended that routine use of immigration holds by local communities has prompted some Californians to hesitate in reporting crimes for fear that they or their loved ones could be deported.

    AB 1081 would have applied both to offenders who were convicted of certain crimes but served their sentences and to arrestees accused but eligible for release on bail pending court proceedings.

    Opponents said that assisting the federal government in enforcing immigration laws is good public policy. They said AB 1081 would make communities less safe by releasing undocumented offenders rather than enabling their deportation.

    SACRAMENTO (Reuters) - California Governor Jerry Brown vetoed an immigration measure dubbed the "anti-Arizona" bill late on Sunday that would shield some illegal immigrants from federal status checks.

    The bill would have prohibited local authorities from honoring federal detention requests, which may lead to deportation proceedings, on illegal immigrants unless those individuals were charged or convicted of a serious or violent felony.

    Supporters said the measure would have served as a counterpoint for what they say is racial profiling inherent in an Arizona law that cracks down on illegal immigration that was allowed to stand by the U.S. Supreme Court earlier this summer.

    In his veto message, Brown said that, while he supports comprehensive immigration reform, the bill was "fatally flawed" by exempted individuals who had committed crimes such as child abuse, drug trafficking and selling weapons.

    "I believe it's unwise to interfere with a sheriff's discretion to comply with a detainer issued for people with those kinds of troubling criminal records," he said.

    Brown's veto sparked ire among immigrant-rights groups who sponsored the measure and had been lobbying the governor to take a lenient stance toward illegal immigrants.

    "Governor Brown has failed California's immigrant communities, imperiling civil rights and leaving us all less safe," Pablo Alvarado, executive director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, said in a statement.

    If Brown had signed the bill, California would have stood apart not only from Arizona, but also Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, South Carolina and Utah, which have all adopted strict laws in the past two years to try to discourage illegal immigrants from settling there.

    California has the largest population of undocumented immigrants in the United States, with nearly 2.6 million at the start of 2010, according to government figures.

    California Governor Brown vetoes bill that allowed towns to release undocumented immigrants

    By Miranda Leitsinger, NBC News

    California’s governor late Sunday vetoed a bill that would have allowed local authorities to free undocumented immigrants from custody despite requests by immigration officials to hold them for possible deportation proceedings.

    The controversial practice has long been criticized by immigration advocates who say the federal requests, known as detainers or holds, cast a wide dragnet that ensnared even those who had committed minor crimes or no offenses. But Immigration and Customs Enforcement had said the program was instrumental in helping enforce immigration laws and in getting violent offenders off the streets.

    In his veto message, Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. said he could not sign the bill as written because under it “local officers would be prohibited from complying with an immigration detainer unless the person arrested was charged with, or has been previously convicted of, a serious or violent felony.

    “Unfortunately, the list of offenses codified in the bill is fatally flawed because it omits many serious crimes,” he said. “For example, the bill would bar local cooperation even when the person arrested has been convicted of certain crimes involving child abuse, drug trafficking, selling weapons, using children to sell drugs, or gangs. I believe it's unwise to interfere with a sheriffs discretion to comply with a detainer issued for people with these kinds of troubling criminal records.”

    Brown noted he would work with lawmakers to improve the legislation and said undocumented immigrants “play a major role in California's economy, with many performing low-wage jobs that others don't want.

    “Comprehensive immigration reform -- including a path to citizenship -- would provide tremendous economic benefits and is long overdue,” he wrote. “Until we have immigration reform, federal agents shouldn’t try to coerce local law enforcement officers into detaining people who’ve been picked up for minor offenses and pose no reasonable threat to their community.”

    Immigration activists denounced Brown’s veto, comparing it to Arizona’s controversial immigration law that includes a provision forcing those stopped by police to show their immigration papers.

    "By vetoing the Trust Act Governor Brown has failed California's immigrant communities, imperiling civil rights and leaving us all less safe. The President's disastrous Secure Communities program is replicating Arizona's model of immigration enforcement nationally, causing a human rights crisis. Immigration and Customs Enforcement strong-armed the Governor to defend its deportation quota instead of defending Californian's rights,” Pablo Alvarado, executive director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, said in a statement.

    “On this sad day, we renew our commitment to fight to keep our families together despite the Governor and the President's insistence on seeing them torn apart.

    Alvarado was referring to ICE’s “Secure Communities” program, under which the FBI shares fingerprints of those arrested with federal immigration authorities who check to see if the person is not legally in the U.S. or if they can be removed due to a criminal conviction.

    ICE says it prioritizes the deportation of those who present the most significant threats to public safety, and that it has deported more than 147,400 convicted criminal undocumented immigrants, including more than 54,200 individuals convicted of violent offenses such as murder, rape and the sexual abuse of children, under the program.

    In a statement last week, ICE Deputy Press Secretary Gillian Christensen said the agency doesn’t comment on pending state legislation.

    “The identification and removal of criminal offenders is ICE’s highest priority and over the past three and half years, ICE has been dedicated to implementing smart, effective reforms to the immigration system that allow it to focus its resources on priority individuals,” she wrote in a statement, noting that the Department of Homeland Security would continue to exercise prosecutorial discretion for certain people who came to the U.S. as children and other individuals who were “low priorities.”

    “The federal government alone sets these priorities and places detainers on individuals arrested on criminal charges to ensure that dangerous criminal aliens and other priority individuals are not released from prisons and jails into our communities,” she added.

    Several counties and cities have enacted ordinances that limit police cooperation with federal immigration authorities, The New York Times has reported.

    Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, a San Francisco Democrat who sponsored the legislation, told The Times that they were “trying to bring some sanity and clarity to a program that I frankly think has gone rogue.”

    “We want police to distinguish between the woman selling tamales and the gang member who has a record,” he said.
