Orange-County-Courthouse-300x225California is gearing up for an immigration showdown with Washington.

A new bill, which recently passed through the State Assembly, seeks to provide a safe harbor for immigrants who are going to California courts. Under President Trump’s aggressive immigration policies, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents have detained undocumented immigrants for possible deportation at courthouses despite the fact that they were going to court as victims or witnesses to a crime.

If the bill passes, law enforcement officers would be prohibited from detaining victims and witnesses for immigration violations.
