Anti-Arizona bill working it's way through California Legislator

No wonder California is practically bankrupt. Other states are trying to deter illegal immigration. California seems to be trying to attract more.
(Reuters) — While America’s debate over immigration has been dominated recently by crackdowns in states like Arizona and Alabama, California legislators are trying to turn that tide with a bill to protect illegal immigrants that they dub the “anti-Arizona.”

Last week, the top U.S. court upheld the most controversial aspect of Arizona’s immigration statute: a requirement that police officers check the immigration status of people they stop, even for minor offenses such as jay-walking.

Enter California, a border state that is home to the largest number of illegal immigrants, most of whom are Hispanic, and is considerably more liberal than its neighbor Arizona.

A bill currently working its way through the California legislature would block local law enforcement from referring a detainee to immigration officials for deportation unless that person has been convicted of a violent or serious felony.

Translation: female Republican politicians from Arizona who closely resemble Emperor Palpatine will be stopped at the state line and turned away.
