Requires all highway patrol, police, sheriffs and other sworn officers to investigate immigration status when they are reasonably suspicious that a person stopped is in the country illegally. Authorizes legal residents to sue any official or agency that adopts or implements policies that limit immigration enforcement, and specifies a $5,000 per day fine and attorneys' fees for violations. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Potentially significant cost savings in services provided to undocumented immigrants by state and local governments and reductions in state and local revenue to the extent this measure reduces the number of undocumented immigrants in the state. The net impact of this factor is unknown. Increased costs to the state and local criminal justice system, potentially exceeding tens of millions of dollars annually, from the arrest, prosecution, and detention of violators of the provisions of the measure.
