    ASSEMBLY BILL 26

    INTRODUCED BY Assembly Member Donnelly
    DECEMBER 6, 2010

    An act to add Section 53069.63 to the Government Code, to add Part 5.5 (commencing with Section 1550) to Division 2 of the Labor Code, and to add Sections 653.65, 653.67, 653.69, 653.71, 653.73, and 653.74 to the Penal Code, relating to illegal immigrants.

    LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST

    Existing law, held unenforceable as preempted by federal law in the case of League of United Latin American Citizens v. Wilson (1997) 997 F.Supp. 1244, prohibits any city, county, or other legally authorized local governmental entity from preventing or limiting the cooperation of any law enforcement agency with federal authorities regarding persons arrested and suspected of being present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws, as specified.

    This bill would prohibit public officials and agencies from adopting a policy that limits or restricts the enforcement of federal immigration laws or that restricts the sharing of a person's immigration status, as specified. The bill would allow any person to bring an action against an entity to enforce these provisions.
    Existing law generally regulates employment, including, but not limited to, the wages, hours, and working conditions of employees.
    This bill would prohibit an employer from knowingly or intentionally employing an unauthorized alien, as specified. The bill would establish a process for persons to file complaints of violations of these provisions with the Attorney General or a district attorney. The bill would make it a misdemeanor to make a false and frivolous complaint alleging a violation of these provisions by an employer. The bill would provide for the investigation of these complaints and specify consequences, including the suspension of certain licenses, for employers that violate these provisions. The bill would require every employer to verify the employment eligibility of employees through the federal E-Verify program and require employers to participate in the federal E-Verify program in order to be eligible for economic development incentives, as specified. Because this bill would impose new duties on local governments and district attorneys, it would impose a state-mandated local program.

    Existing law, held unenforceable as preempted by federal law in the case of League of United Latin American Citizens v. Wilson (1997) 977 F.Supp. 1244, requires every law enforcement agency, with respect to any person who is arrested and suspected of being present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws, to, among other things, attempt to verify the legal status of such person and notify the Attorney General and federal authorities of any apparent illegal status. Existing law makes it a felony, punishable in the state prison for 5 years and a fine of $25,000, for any person to use false documents to conceal his or her true citizenship or resident alien status.
    This bill would make it a misdemeanor for a person to be present on any public or private land while at the same time the person is in violation of specified federal immigration laws. The bill would make it a felony to be in violation of this provision if the person is in possession of specified drugs, weapons, or property, as specified. The bill would make it a felony for a person to intentionally engage in the smuggling of a human being for profit or commercial purposes, as specified, and would provide differing penalties depending on the circumstances of the offense. The bill would make it a misdemeanor for an occupant of a motor vehicle to attempt to hire persons for work if the motor vehicle blocks or impedes the normal movement of traffic. The bill would also make it a misdemeanor to enter a motor vehicle in order to be hired by an occupant if the motor vehicle blocks or impedes the normal movement of traffic. The bill would make it a misdemeanor for a person who is unlawfully present in the United States and who is an unauthorized alien, as defined, to knowingly apply for or solicit work or perform work as an employee or independent contractor.
    The bill would make it a misdemeanor to transport or move or attempt to transport or move an alien when the person knows, or recklessly disregards the fact, that the alien is in the United States unlawfully, as specified. The bill would make it a misdemeanor to conceal, harbor, or shield or attempt to conceal, harbor, or shield an alien from detection if the person knows, or recklessly disregards the fact, that the alien is in the United States unlawfully, as specified. The bill would make it a misdemeanor to encourage or induce an alien to come to, or reside in, this state if the person knows, or recklessly disregards the fact, that the alien would be entering or residing in this state unlawfully. The bill would make a violation of these provisions a felony if the violation involves 10 or more illegal aliens. Because this bill would create various new crimes, it would impose a state-mandated local program.
    The bill would require a peace officer to cause the removal and either immobilization or impoundment of a vehicle if the peace officer determines that a person is driving the vehicle while the person is engaged in certain acts involving an alien unlawfully in the United States, as specified.
    The bill would establish the Gang and Immigration Intelligence Team Enforcement Mission Fund to be funded as specified, and administered by the Department of Justice to be used, upon appropriation, for gang and immigration enforcement and for county jail reimbursements relating to illegal immigration.
    The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
    This bill would provide that with regard to certain mandates no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
    With regard to any other mandates, this bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs so mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.

    ASSEMBLY BILL 78

    INTRODUCED BY Assembly Member Mendoza
    JANUARY 3, 2011

    An act to submit an advisory question to the voters relating to
    immigration, calling an election, to take effect immediately.

    LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST

    AB 78, as introduced, Mendoza. Immigration: advisory election.

    This bill would, notwithstanding existing provisions of law relating to elections, call an election for the purpose of placing before the voters of the state an advisory question asking whether the President and the Congress of the United States shall create a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who have worked in this country for at least 5 years, have no felony convictions, have learned to speak English, and have paid all taxes for which they are responsible. The bill would require the Secretary of State to communicate the results of this election to the President and consolidate this election with the statewide direct primary election of June 5, 2012. By increasing the duties of local elections officials for an election on the advisory question, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
    The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
    This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to these statutory provisions.
    This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an act calling for an election.

    trafficking.

    LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST

    AB 90, as introduced, Swanson. Human trafficking: minors.

    Existing law provides that any person who deprives or violates the personal liberty of another with the intent to effect or maintain certain felonies, or to obtain forced labor or services, is guilty of human trafficking.
    This bill would additionally provide that a person who deprives or violates another person's liberty with the intent to effect or felony of making available to another person a person under 16 years of age for the purpose of any lewd or lascivious act, or the felony of the procurement of minors in the preparation of material depicting sexual conduct by a minor, is guilty of human trafficking.
    This bill would also expand the scope of the offense of human trafficking to provide that any person who causes, induces, encourages, or persuades a person under 18 years of age to engage in a commercial sex act, as defined, with the intent to effect or maintain specified felonies, or who obtains forced labor or services from a minor, is guilty of human trafficking.
    By expanding the scope of an existing crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
    The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
    This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this
    act for a specified reason.

    BILL NUMBER: AB 1081

    INTRODUCED BY Assembly Member Ammiano

    An act to add Chapter 17.1 (commencing with Section 7282) to
    Division 7 of Title 1 of the Government Code, relating to state
    government.

    LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST

    AB 1081, as introduced, Ammiano. State government: federal immigration policy enforcement.

    Existing law, setting forth the findings and declarations of the Legislature, provides that all protections, rights, and remedies available under state law, except any reinstatement remedy prohibited by federal law, are available to all individuals regardless of immigration status who have applied for employment, or who are or who have been employed, within the state, and further provides that, for purposes of enforcing specified state laws, a person's immigration status is irrelevant to the issue of liability, and prohibits, in proceedings or discovery undertaken to enforce those state laws, an inquiry into a person's immigration status except where the person seeking to make the inquiry has shown by clear and convincing evidence that the inquiry is necessary in order to comply with federal immigration law.
    This bill would state the findings and declarations of the Legislature with respect to a memorandum of agreement with the United States Department of Homeland Security, regarding the implementation of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Secure Communities program, that the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Information within the Department of Justice entered into on May 8, 2009. The bill would require the bureau to modify that agreement, according to specified requirements, or to exercise its authority under the agreement to terminate the agreement.

    ASSEMBLY BILL 1031

    INTRODUCED BY Assembly Member Donnelly

    FEBRUARY 18, 2011

    An act to add Section 23153.5 to the Vehicle Code, relating to
    vehicles.

    LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


    AB 1031, as introduced, Donnelly. Vehicles: driving under the influence (DUI): undocumented drivers.
    (1) Existing law requires an arresting agency to notify the appropriate federal agency if the arresting agency has reason to believe that a person arrested for the possession, transportation, sale, or giving away of specified controlled substances may not be a citizen of the United States.
    This bill would, in addition, require an arresting authority to report to the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement the presence of a person if the person is arrested for driving while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage or drug, or the combined influence of an alcoholic beverage and drug and the person fails to provide the arresting authority with appropriate documentation demonstrating his or her legal presence in the United States.
    Because an arresting agency includes a local agency, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program by increasing the duties of local law enforcement officials.
    (2) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
    This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to these statutory provisions.
