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.

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.
