California AG threatens to prosecute employers who obey federal law, assist feds with immigration crackdown

On Thursday, Xavier Becerra, Attorney General of the Sharia-compliant sanctuary state of California, threatened to prosecute employers who dare to obey federal immigration laws and assist authorities in a potential immigration crackdown.

“It’s important, given these rumors that are out there, to let people know – more specifically today, employers – that if they voluntarily start giving up information about their employees or access to their employees in ways that contradict our new California laws, they subject themselves to actions by my office,” Becerra said, according to the Sacramento Bee.

“We will prosecute those who violate the law,” he added.

San Francisco Democratic Assemblyman David Chiu issued a series of bullet points in California’s new law, the “Immigrant Worker Protection Act,” which he authored and was signed by Democrat Gov. Jerry Brown last year and went into effect on January 1.

  • Requires employers to ask immigration agents for a warrant before granting access to a worksite.
  • Prevents employers from voluntarily sharing confidential employee information without a subpoena.
  • Requires employers to notify their workers before a federal audit of employee records.
  • Gives the attorney general and labor commissioner exclusive authority to enforce new provisions of state labor laws.
  • Prohibits employers from re-verifying information on employment verification forms, unless compelled to by federal law.

Becerra, the Bee said, admitted that reports of crackdowns are “rumors” and said the state Department of Justice was not aware of planned sweeps targeting Northern California.

Naturally, this didn’t sit too well with many.



More like a “crazy” state.

It’s California, so…



Worse yet, business owners now face the very real prospect of being shut down and prosecuted for following the law.
