The California Legislature Saturday passed a "sanctuary state" bill to protect immigrants without legal residency in the US, part of a broader push by Democrats to counter expanded deportation orders under the Trump administration.
It prohibits law enforcement officials from asking about a person's immigration status or participating in immigration enforcement efforts.
The legislature also passed a package of bills aimed at increasing the availability of affordable housing in the notoriously expensive state, and approved a plan for spending $1.5 billion in income from the state's cap-and-trade air quality program, which raises money by selling businesses limited rights to emit pollutants.

The measure cruised through the Senate and was expected to pass the Assembly before Brown blocked what many expected to be an easy lay-up to victory for de León and advocates for the undocumented community.
After talks with Brown, amendments to the bill made this week would allow federal immigration authorities to keep working with state corrections officials and to continue entering county jails to question immigrants.

In an emotional debate that brought lawmakers on both sides to tears, supporters said the law is needed now more than ever. "It sends a very clear message to the Trump administration that in California we value inclusivity, we value diversity", De Leon said.
