-- any impact segment tonight as we've been reporting the state of California seems to be legalizing.
Sacramento -- has a number of laws that will give undocumented aliens driving privileges college educations protect them from deportation.
Here's our extreme things are.
A proposed new law in California would prevent prevent police -- cooperating with the federal government on illegal alien criminal cases.
Democratic politicians in California obviously doing this to strengthen their base among -- from south of the border.
Joining us now from Washington Julie Myers would former head of immigration and customs enforcement so obviously California's subverting federal law RMI wrong -- Absolutely California saying we know best we know best federal government and frankly we leave Sacramento no better than the California -- -- down on the ground.
And are worried about threats to their community from unauthorized and illegal immigrants yeah I even -- the chair for marine county just north of San Francisco perhaps most liberal counting the -- that was.
We can't even put a hold on these criminals now because of Sacramento.
But this is all about politics it's not about what's good for the country -- what's good for the state of California.
This is the Democratic Party saying we want to become the party of the Hispanic.
People because there's so many of them in California and that's what they're doing.
Am I wrong on that analysis.
A lot of second guess why they're doing and a bad but I'll tell is there any -- frustrated is there any reason to.
To do to institute all of these things that are costing.
That taxpayers -- -- when -- billions of dollars is there any other reason other than politics to do it.
Well I think I think raising the flag and saying our federal system is -- -- and we saw Arizona do it in a different way and they say we let things be different and if you're not act congress and congress is not acting on any thing is we CNET.
The -- say we're gonna take it into our own hands should any attorney general -- go in and say to California you can't do this.
You can't not cooperate with federal people.
Ice when you have a criminal situation and at -- we'll sue you if you continue this policy shouldn't the attorney general do that.
They should absolutely do that and it unites states vs Arizona.
That department -- was very very clear that it was important to enforce federal equities and enforcing immigration law.
And Arizona that they made a different choice at DOJ -- an NC they should -- the exact same thing here in California we can't -- -- state to say we're not an honor.
You know US law enforcement -- states that -- too much of a danger to public safety and the fact that this can go on after 9/11 that they can discourage law enforcement to talking to a tether.
It's really appalling and -- years -- a dangerous for everybody because how can have illegal aliens crossing state lines.
They get him on a beach in California and ice is an even got to know about it.
And that's against federal law.
And and Governor Brown a -- -- there -- no I don't prayer.
Because they know all -- not all that the attorney general all is a very liberal man and he's not likely to go after them.
And again we go back to politics this would.
Well and you know what they -- take they take -- 150 million dollars or so a year and ordered a house.
I'm authorized immigrants you know they take that money it's a California have an obligation.
Because it takes that's -- money and the fact that they're moving for the trust -- I think is very disturbing and I hope that -- -- We'll come forward and say as a matter of public safety if you got a little.
We are the -- doing -- you know the game in DC you know the players what are the odds of the attorney general as you rightly pointed out did sue Arizona this.
Same same issue your cameraman -- federal law you can't do that what -- they got they hands and -- same thing to Jerry brown and the people in California.
Well -- I don't think the odds are great but if if they -- to be consistent with their principles and if they really care about these public safety concerns.
They would step forward and I know that John Morton the former had advice was very concerned about these kinds of things in the Obama administration so what -- That the administration will look seriously at the -- -- and try to persuade Governor Brown.
Or take legal action if they have to do that and I we're gonna call the attorney general's office and see a -- and the federal lawsuit will be filed against a state of California.
For failing to cooperate with the -- -- with thank you.
