"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".

Trump has said he would focus on deporting illegal immigrants who have been convicted of crimes in the United States and that there are probably 2 or 3 million of such people in the country.

"I'm proud to support a package of bills that protect California's immigrant population and challenge our society to end policies of profiling and discrimination based on race or religion".

The fourth-term governor's remarks were in line with his initial statement on Trump's election, in which Brown quoted Abraham Lincoln's warning that "A house divided against itself can not stand" and said California would do its part to find common ground. Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Oakland), also introduced legislation to create state-funded regional centers to train defense attorneys and public defender's offices on immigration law and the consequences of criminal convictions.

Gov. Jerry Brown, in his most extensive remarks since the election last month, took a measured approach to President-elect Donald Trump on Monday, breaking with fellow California Democrats by avoiding partisan rejoinders while pledging not to retreat from the state's progressive policy approaches on issues from immigration to health care. A 2014 study conducted by the University of Southern California and the California Immigrant Policy Center found undocumented immigrants made up almost 10 percent of California's workforce and contributed $130 billion annually to the state's GDP.

The son of immigrant parents, Becerra said he hopes his historic appointment "opens up doors" for every Californian. "Californians do not need healing, we need to fight", said Rendon.

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".

States' rights do not extend to areas under the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal government - which include immigration, as Democrats once insisted, when Arizona attempted to enforce federal immigration law.

"The fear in our communities has reached an all-time high in the aftermath of the November 2016 election, and California must protect our residents' due process rights in these life and death proceedings", Hueso's office said in a fact sheet, cited by the San Diego Union-Tribune.
