Officials call for California to withdraw from controversial illegal immigration enforcement program
Seven Democratic members of California's Congressional Delegation called on Gov. Jerry Brown Friday to suspend California's participation in the Secure Communities immigration enforcement program.

In recent weeks, governors in Illinois, New York and Massachusetts sought to suspend or declined to enter into Secure Communities participation agreements. Earlier this week, the Los Angeles City Council voted nearly unanimously to support legislation allowing communities to opt out of the program.
