JAISAL NOOR: This is the Real News Network. I'm Jaisal Noor. Defying the deportation machine in the age of Trump. California has become the first so-called sanctuary state with Governor Jerry Brown signing a measure that would block cooperation between local and state law enforcement and federal authorities among almost a dozen other measures that would protect the State's undocumented immigrants. That's despite threats from Attorney General Jeff Sessions to cut funding from jurisdictions that defy calls to deport more undocumented immigrants.
