SACRAMENTO — California Gov.Jerry Brown signed a law that bans state cooperation with attempts made by the federal government to indefinitely detain people.
This law is in direct response to the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act.
The act allows the federal government to place people into indefinite detention without charges or a trail based on national security grounds.
Brown signed Assembly Bill 351 reads, “It is the policy of this state to refuse to provide material support for or to participate in any way with the implementation within this state of any federal law that purports to authorize indefinite detention of a person within California.”
