California’s attorney general: ‘We are very confident’ of finding a way to keep undocumented immigrants from California
California’s Attorney General Xavier Becerra said Thursday that his office has reached an agreement with a group of immigrant advocates to allow them to continue to represent undocumented immigrants in the state’s legal system.
Becerras office said the agreement covers all legal matters including employment, immigration, housing, child custody and guardianship matters.
The agreement is a victory for immigrants’ rights advocates who have been working on a legislative fix for years.
Becers office also said he will sign an executive order to clarify that the state will not enforce immigration law against undocumented immigrants.
California’s Democratic governor, Jerry Brown, also signed an executive agreement with immigrant advocates.
He said the two agreements are a step in the right direction toward creating an environment where immigrants feel safe in the United States.
