Hot Air readers, Erika Johnsen turn their backs on millions of Americans in California ("anti-Arizona" immigration bill) - 07/06/12
The California state senate recently passed a bill called the TRUST Act which seeks to prevent localities from contacting the Department of Homeland Security about all but the most dangerous illegal aliens.

They just care about undocumented persons: San Francisco Supervisor Tom Ammiano is drafting legislation to create a city identification card for immigrants unable to get traditional ID cards, a move likely to anger advocates of tougher immigration enforcement. The cards would be accepted by all city agencies and organizations that receive city funding...
The Bay City News Wire - apparently an even-further left version of the AP operated by KPIX/CBS 5 out of San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose, alerts us that "SF: PROTESTERS KICK OFF WEEK OF ACTION AGAINST IMMIGRANT ARRESTS". The verbage used is similar to that from their "investigative reporter" Anna Werner, but the author isn't known. As with the article at the link, they don't seem to understand this whole "immigration law"/"city laws vs.
