California's state legislature on Thursday night passed AB 60, a bill written by Assemblyman Luis Alejo, D-Salinas. After the measure was approved, Gov. Jerry Brown issued a statement suggesting that he intends to sign the bill into law.

"This bill will enable millions of people to get to work safely and legally.  Hopefully, it will send a message to Washington that immigration reform is long past due," Brown said in the statement.
