"I think we ought to try to work with this administration", he said.
The lawmakers also announced the introduction of two bills to help undocumented immigrants if Trump pursues his aggressive deportation plan.
As the Legislature reconvened briefly Monday, its two top leaders, Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon and Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, and others pledged to implacably resist Trump - to "fight in the streets", as Sen. "Immigrants also represent a large percentage of small business owners and create economy prosperity and needed jobs for everyone".

We will defend the interests of the political minority, the principles of liberty, and the ideal of republican self-government against Speaker Rendon and his party's neo-Confederate, tyrannical impulses. "Now this body has been called to service at a pivotal - some would say portentous - moment in our state's and our nation's history". "We are not going to allow one election to reverse generations of progress at the height of our historic diversity, scientific advancement, economic output, and sense of global responsibility".
