A Republican California lawmaker with tea party support has started the long uphill battle to pass Arizona-style immigration laws in a state that’s home to several sanctuary cities.

Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, a San Bernardino County Republican who patrolled the California-Mexico border with the Minutemen citizen group, sponsored a rally for his immigration bill at the state capitol Monday, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday. The rally attracted about 100 supporters, many wearing tea party T-shirts.

The bill would require law enforcement to verify the immigration status of anyone who is arrested and suspected of being in the country illegally. It also would make it illegal to limit the enforcement of federal immigration laws, such as sanctuary cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles do. And it would require employers to use the E-verify system while barring them from hiring anyone they know is not here legally.
