  • California AG: 'We will prosecute' employers who violate sanctuary laws

    Under what authority can a state AG go after people for abiding the law?

    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.

      This madness is exactly why I think the feds ought to throw these arse*oles into jail. The Federal laws as they stand give them the power to do exactly that.

          A simpler move would be to cut off all Federal funding to the Caliban.

          For all their bragging about their economy, their state government is nearly broke.

            I'd rather the feds come and teach them about the rule of law and put a bit of fear into these louts.

                My state of Kalifornia has been taken over by Fascists. Time for the Feds to step in and take control of the situation. Jail, Bayonet or Bullet is fine with me.

                    When will the California National Guard fire on Fort Sumter?

                    It's one thing when a state refuses to enforce a Federal law, as controversial as that may be -- but threatening to prosecute a citizen for obeying a Federal law sounds like a loser from "go." I'm thinking that I should go to California right now, finger some illegals to the Feds, and when the State of California charges me with a crime under state law for obeying Federal law, I'll sue the living sht out of them in Federal court. I'll be owning the whole state within a year.

                      And people worry about Trump.

                      I can't wait to see california try to prosecute someone for following federal law.
                      When there is conflict between federal law and state law, federal law is, and always will be, superior. The Constitution directly addresses this.



                      This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

                        Yeah, it appears to be getting really bad. Insanity in government level. Time for some harsh action to cleanse that rat's nest out.

                            It's getting harder for such a thing to happen. The USN has left the state except for San Diego and a few other remnants here and there. The US Army, likewise has closed most of their bases. The Marines are still at 29 Palms and in San Diego.
                            But, for the most part, the state's been denuded of DoD activities in good part due to California's onerous environmental laws.

                            Like other businesses, the DoD is fleeing California where they can.

                              They can't. Federal law trumps state law, and the states cannot pass a law cancelling a Federal law. They can make a law more strict, but cannot lessen in any way the Federal law.

                              And if an employee's Federal superior orders him/her to provide information, the employee must comply.

                              There will be a test case, California will lose, and that will accelerate the long slide into darkness that we have already begun.
