The California Senate on Monday passed a controversial “sanctuary state” bill that bars local and state law enforcement from using their resources to help federal immigration enforcement.

The 40-member body approved Senate Bill 54, introduced by Sen. President Pro Tem Kevin de León, on a 27-12, party-line vote. It now heads to the Assembly.

“We are trying to make our communities safer and be intelligent about this,” de León said. “No rhetoric and no bluster.”

Political science professor and Project Rebound Director Renford Reese strives to pave the way for formerly incarcerated CPP students.
