Governor Brown: Cpl. Singh's killing has 'nothing to do' with sanctuary state law (ABC 10)
During his final 48 hours in office, California Governor Jerry Brown responded to criticism of the state's "sanctuary state" law, saying the death of Newman police Corpora Ronil Singh had "nothing to do" with the law.
"No, I don't think so," Brown said when asked if California's "sanctuary state" law, SB 54, could lead to bad actors falling through the cracks.
"I think people now are looking to blame somebody because of the terrible things that happened," he continued later, "but it had nothing to do with the law of California."
