Bill To Require Yearly Reports On Immigration Transfers Facing Friday Deadline

Among bills that must clear Friday’s legislative deadline to advance is one requiring police departments to inform lawmakers how many people they transfer to the custody of federal immigration authorities.

The measure, sponsored by Democratic Assemblywoman Selena Torres, mandates that local law enforcement agencies provide yearly reports on the number of people they transfer to federal custody for immigration enforcement.

The reports would not identify the people who are transferred.
