The acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is criticizing California's new "sanctuary state" law.
Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Thursday called the "California Values Act," which gives more protections to undocumented immigrants in the state.
In short, the bill limits how California law enforcement can cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
It bars local and state authorities from using resources to "investigate, interrogate, detain, detect, or arrest persons for immigration enforcement purposes." It also bars authorities from asking about immigration status.
ICE head Tom Homan said Friday the bill undermines public safety and hinders the agency's ability to do its job — something Brown denied in a statement about the signing.
Brown said federal immigration authorities are free to use their own resources to enforce immigration law and emphasized that the bill doesn't block them from interviewing immigrants in custody.
Still, Homan said Brown is wrong about the bill and that it makes California a "magnet for more illegal immigration."
