The bill will prohibit additional jail time meant to allow immigration enforcement officials to take undocumented immigrants arrested for other reasons into custody.

In arguing against the measure, Republicans in the Assembly invoked the 2015 shooting of Kate Steinle by an undocumented immigrant in San Francisco, arguing that sanctuary protections make communities less safe.

The bill will prevent local police from becoming "cogs in the Trump deportation machine", de Leon said.

California lawmakers punctuated the end of the 2017 legislative season by passing a comprehensive immigration bill that makes the state one of the nation's most hostile to federal immigration authorities. "With SB 54, California will meaningfully improve state law to keep families together and communities whole-and not a moment too soon as the Trump administration continues its draconian and indiscriminate crackdown on immigrants".

Brown has backed the bill and is expected to sign it into law, despite the Trump Administration rejection of sanctuary cities and states.

The bill does allow California police officers to communicate with federal agents about those convicted of hundreds of felonies within the past 15 years.

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 time for political posturing is over, guys", said Assemblyman James Gallagher, R-Yuba City.

IL recently passed even more protective legislation that bars law enforcement from detaining immigrants exclusively for deportation, said Shiu Ming Cheer, senior staff attorney at the National Immigration Law Center.

The changes did not mollify U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Thomas Homan, who said the bill will deliberately destruct immigration laws and shelter criminals.

Proponents of the California Values Act cited residents' fear of law enforcement amid the looming threat of deportation as a vital reason to pass the bill.

The legislation passed early Saturday drastically scaled back the version first introduced, the result of tough negotiations between Gov.
