During a press conference on Thursday, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said employers who follow federal immigration law would be prosecuted by either him or “local prosecuting authorities.”

Becerra clarified that two recently passed immigration laws in California are now being implemented in 2018, A.B. 450 and S.B. 54.

“A.B. 450 in particular deals with the workplace and how we go about treating the information about the workplace and employees at the workplace, by employers,” Becerra said.

“Such that we try to protect the privacy interests of the people who work there,” the California AG continued. “And we’re not sharing information in ways that would violate the rights – the privacy rights – of those individuals and the ability of folks to work free of coercion and free of fear at the workplace.”

Translation: Illegal immigrants now have a state-protected right-to-work.

“So what we’re trying to make sure is that employers are aware that this is 2018 and there’s a new law in place,” Becerra added.

Employers throughout the state of California are unable to report the citizenship of their workers, because if the worker is in the country illegally, it would violate the new statute.

“Ignorance of the law is no excuse if you violate it,” the California AG concluded.

He transparently said, “We want our employers who are working really hard to keep our economy going and employ more folks.”
