With new year, California becomes 'sanctuary state'

California became a "sanctuary state" Monday, as a bill that Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law in October officially took effect.

The law bars police in the nation's most populous state from asking people about their immigration status or participating in federal immigration enforcement activities in most cases, Fox News reported.

The Golden State is home to an estimated 2.3 million illegal immigrants.

“These are uncertain times for undocumented Californians and their families, and this bill strikes a balance that will protect public safety, while bringing a measure of comfort to those families who are now living in fear everyday,” Brown said on the day he signed the bill.

Everyday I get more proud of our state. We can have nice things if we elect Dems. Don't be a single issue or a purity voter. Nothing comes unless we have the power to make change and that means majorities in assemblies and congress.

Forget your pet peeves and vote this year for every Dem you can!

1. Time for a little California housecleaning: #1: Nunes; #2: Issa; #3: Rohrbacher

Let's run the table, Californians! And I have to give a proud shout-out to Amanda Renteria, who is presently chief of operations for the California State Attorney General’s Office. Amanda is one of our State's best political resources.

4. Sad necessity but true

I used to not look too closely at party affiliation, back when individual party members seemed to vote their conscience sometimes. But since the repugs banded together and sold their collective souls I vote straight democrat.

5. Same here.

I've found that voting republican is a sure sign of terminal stupidity...........even Obamacare can't fix it.
