Senate Bill 54
- Senator Kevin de Leon (D Los Angeles). Giving illegal immigrants immunity. Existing law provides that when
there is reason to believe a person is under the influence of a controlled substance and is in this country illegally, law
enforcement shall notify the appropriate agency of the United States having charge over deportation. Senate Bill 54 repeals this
provision. It replaces it by taking away law enforcements authority and ability to arrest, detain, or investigate any person believed
to be here illegally. SB 54 requires that law enforcement, school officials, and security personnel stay
out of immigration matters. They would be barred from acting on immigration status issues. SB 54 creates a state mandated
program. SB 54 would take affect immediately as an urgency statute.
StancoInsider strongly opposes SB 54! It gives illegal immigrants an unfair advantage by giving them the power to circumvent
laws that American citizens must follow. It grants illegal immigrants privileges not available to US citizens. It is a violation of
our consutitutional rights under the 14th Amendment- The Equal Protection Claus.
Assembly Bill 729
, introduced by Assemblyman Adam Gray (D-Merced). This bill would require a licensing authority to suspend the
license for a violation of engaging in nonmedical marijuana commercial activities with a person under the age of 21. A
license may be permanently revoked prior to a 3rd violation when the circumstances warrant that penalty. The bill would require a
licensee to post a sign, visible from each public entrance, and a similar sign inside the premises that reads “No Person Under 21
Allowed”. It would also require a recreational marijuana establishment to provide unobstructed physical access to law enforcement
with clear windows for visual inspection. The bill would authorize a licensee to refuse to sell marijuana to a person who is unable
to produce adequate personal identification showing that he or she is 21 years of age or older. This bill would prohibit the
sale, or distribution of marijuana or marijuana products in a vending machine.
StancoInsider supports Assembly bill 729
Senator Scott Weiner (D-San Francisco) introduced legislation (SB-239
), that would change California law by reducing penalties for
someone intentionally/ knowingly infecting another person with HIV.
SB-239 would reduce this macabre crime from a felony to a slap on the hand misdemeanor. We wonder if Senator Scott Weiner would
feel the same way if it was his child that was deliberately infected. Make no mistake: This is yet another attempt by a San
Francisco politician to side with the perpetrators of this gruesome crime and leave the victims on their own to
die a slow horrific death.
We are appalled that SB-239 was even introduced and we fully expect Governor Brown to veto this horrific legislation.
