Reuters reports that on Monday leaders of both houses of California’s legislature introduced two bills to protect undocumented immigrants in the state from efforts to deport them once President-elect Donald Trump takes office on January 20, 2017. One measure would set up a fund to pay for lawyers for immigrants facing deportation. The other would train criminal defense attorneys in immigration law. “Immigrants are a part of California’s history, our culture, and our society,” stated Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon. “We are telling the next administration and Congress: If you want to get to them, you have to go through us.”
