Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Trial court's judgment enjoining Governor Schwarzenegger and other defendants from enforcing Senate Bill No. 1137 sections 1-12 that sought to amend the Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act of 2000 (hereafter Proposition 36) is affirmed where: 1) certain challenged sections of the Senate Bill 1137 allowing incarceration for drug-related probation violations, when that sanction would be prohibited by Proposition 36, cannot be deemed to be consistent with the purposes of the Proposition; and 2) Senate Bill 1137's provision for a popular vote, if any part of Senate Bill 1137 is invalidated, is itself invalid.
