Proposed California Bill… Ban Contracts with Companies Sharing Data with ICE, Border Patrol

California may soon prohibit cities and counties from doing business with companies cooperating with the Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) and Border Patrol.

On Tuesday, the California State Assembly’s Committee on Justice is conducting a hearing on AB 1332, the Sanctuary State Contracting and Investment Act.

Assembly member Rob Bonta proposed AB 1332, which prohibits California cities and counties from entering into contracts with companies providing ICE or Border Patrol with data broker, extreme vetting, or detention facility services, “unless a state or local agency has made a finding that no reasonable alternative exists.” The bill also prohibits cities and counties from investing in these companies.

Bonta introduced AB 1332 in response to President Donald Trump’s 2017 executive order on border security and immigration enforcement. He noted that the President’s order created an increased “fear and insecurity among many immigrants” in California and across the country. Trump “assigned ICE officers with unprecedented powers to target and terrorize immigrant communities.”

    Evidently, some in the Lunkhead Legislature do not understand the requirement of following Federal Laws.
    Those having rational thought are departing Taxifornia in droves. This bill would increase the departures of both businesses and taxpaying voters.

    Three posts not posted? Seems my prediction re the integrity of this blog has come to pass.

    • Post Scripts says:

      Libby, I make every effort to monitor your comments and post them as fast as I can. Sometimes it might take a bit longer than others, but they get posted. Sorry for the delay, but its nothing to do with you personally.

      • Chris says:

        I also posted comments yesterday that did not show up. My comments today are showing up just fine. Seeing as Libby had the same problem, this is unlikely to be coincidence.

        No one is critiquing your effort, Jack. We are well aware that this is the work of the guy you recently chose as co-blogger, who absolutely does have a personal vendetta against us, as he has made very clear.

        • Post Scripts says:

          Chris its on me to approve comments. Sorry I’ve been late.

          • RHT447 says:

            My comment is missing as well. #Me too?

            Geeze, some people sure get pissy when the free ice cream is late. Press on, Sir. Or, put your feet up, take Porky Pig’s advice, and tell them to “b-dee, b-dee, piss off!”.

          • Chris says:

            It’s not about being late. I posted comments yesterday that never showed up, at all. It sounds like Libby is saying the same.

          • Joe says:

            Who are Chris and Libby to judge?

            They haven’t even paid their slavery reparations yet, and Jussie Smollett needs the money for that lawsuit.

            Lord all mighty, those whiny Lib’s y’all got out there are trigger quick, but aim poor.
            Throw blame at anyone and miss every time.

            Although they did give us hoot, didn’t they
