As Twitchy told you yesterday, proponents of “Calexit” can now begin collecting signatures to get California secession on the ballot. But California’s got another trick up its sleeve, too:

More from The Hill:

A state Senate committee will hear testimony on a bill offered by Senate President Kevin de León (D) that would prohibit state and local law enforcement agencies from spending money to enforce federal immigration laws. The measure would also ban immigration enforcement in state schools, health facilities and courthouses.

“We will not stand by and let the federal government use our state and local agencies to separate mothers from their children,” de León said in December, when he introduced what he calls the California Values Act.

The fight over sanctuary status could put billions of dollars in federal funding for California programs at risk. Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order pledging to withhold federal money from cities and states that do not comply with federal immigration laws. The order requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to designate so-called “sanctuary jurisdictions” that refuse to share immigration status information with federal officials.

Hate to break it to you, California, but this may not be one of your best ideas.

Still, if they insist, there are plenty of people who won’t stand in their way.
