Gov. Jerry Brown Signs The Trust Act, Other New Laws

Hosted by

Immigrants’ rights activists are showering praise on Governor Brown for 8 new laws he signed into effect this weekend, including the Trust Act. It prohibits local law enforcement from placing 48 hour holds on undocumented immigrants when they’re been picked up for minor offenses.

Last Thursday at LA City Hall, the Governor ended a longstanding battle by signing another bill making undocumented immigrants eligible for drivers’ licenses. That’s likely to mean a lot of new business for the Department of Motor Vehicles.
