Assemblyman Russ Bogh (R-Beaumont)Sacramento -Assemblyman Russ Bogh (R-Beaumont) introduced Assembly Bills 331 and 332 today.

Violent Criminals have found a loophole in a federal treaty which allows Mexican authorities to refuse to extradite criminals to the United States if they face life imprisonment or the death penalty for the crimes of which they are accused.

Assembly Bill 331 prohibits the use of state funds for officials to travel to Mexico, unless it is a law enforcement official for purposes of travel to return an accused criminal to the United States to face justice.

AB 332 addresses concerns that police officers are not being allowed to use every resource available to them to protect the public from known criminals.

Assembly Bill 332 will prohibit any law enforcement agency or local governing body from implementing any rule or order that stops law enforcement officers from initiating action to find out a person’s immigration status. Any rule forbidding an officer from arresting someone for entering the county illegally would also be prohibited
