SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – California lawmakers are proposing urgent bills to fund immigration lawyers and assist public defenders in helping protect immigrants in the state from President-elect Donald Trump’s plans for more deportations. State Sen. Ben Hueso, D-San Diego, said Monday he is proposing the measure to fund lawyers for immigrants in deportation proceedings. Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Alameda, has introduced a bill to help public defenders assess the immigration consequences of criminal convictions. The measures are among a series of proposals being discussed by lawmakers and immigrant advocates in California. Other ideas include protecting immigrants’ information in state databases and further limiting law enforcement collaboration with deportation agents. California has more than 10 million residents who are foreign-born.
