HOLLYWOOD HILLS—On Saturday, October 5, Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. signed immigration legislation to ease the conditions of Immigration Workers. This prompted a rally to celebrate immigration rights.
Legislation signed by Governor Brown, according to a press release from the California Government website, include AB 4 which stops police from arresting immigrant workers based on their immigration status; and only allowing detainment if they are suspected of committing a crime.
AB 524 prohibits threats of exposing an immigrant’s status, viewing it as a form of extortion. AB 666 suspends or revokes an employer’s business license as a form of retaliation if an establishment refuses to allow an immigrant a job based on immigration status.
