California to Become Sanctuary State?  The California Legislature will today consider a bill to prohibit state law enforcement agencies from cooperating with federal immigration authorities which, if enacted, would effectively make California a sanctuary state.  CBS News LA reports  that SB54, introduced by Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, would protect illegals in the state from the President's promised crackdown on those who have been convicted of commiting crimes in the U.S.  The Senate committee  will also consider other legislation today which would provide state tax-payer funds to provide lawyers for illegals facing deportation.
