California Dem bill appears to allow illegal immigrants become police officers

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
A new California bill appears to allow illegal immigrants to become police officers in the state. “Existing law, with certain exceptions, prohibits a person who is not a citizen of the United States from being appointed as a member of the California Highway Patrol. This bill would remove that prohibition, and would make conforming changes,” the bill states. SB 960, proposed by Democrat Sen. Nancy Skinner, would remove the provision that an individual must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States in order to become a police officer.TEXAS BORDER RESIDENTS FED UP AS MIGRANT INFLUX WORSENS: ‘WE DON’T KNOW’ WHO’S COMING INThe bill was previously voted on at the end of March, with four ayes and one no. Democratic Sens. Steven Bradford, Sydney Kamlager and Scott Wiener, along with Skinner, all voted in favor of the bill. Sen. Rosilicie Ochoa Bogh, a Republican, voted no.The bill only allows for legal immigrants to become police officers, a source familiar with the bill told Fox News Digital. However, language in the bill itself does not specify that illegal immigrants are barred from doing so. The term “illegal immigrant” was unnecessary to include as other sections of federal law already barred illegal immigrants from becoming officers, the source continued.The bill received its second reading on Tuesday and is now onto its third reading.
