We've written frequently in recent weeks/months about the brewing battle between the Trump administration and so-called "sanctuary cities" where local police officers are specifically instructed to ignore federal immigration laws. Now, the leftist state of California is considering a new senate bill that would have the entire state become America's first "sanctuary state."

According to CBS Los Angeles, Senate Bill 54, written by Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon of Los Angeles, will come to the floor for it's first public hearing today. While Democrat-controlled cities like Los Angeles, San
Francisco and Sacramento are already considered sanctuary cities, SB54
would enforce the same protections for illegal immigrants on more
conservative California cities in the San Joaquin Valley and elsewhere.
