SACRAMENTO, Calif.—California Governor has signed another piece of legislation to protect people living in the country illegally.

Governor Brown signed the bill into law Thursday and it will go into effect immediately.

It requires lawyers to get permission from a judge before asking someone their immigration status in court.

Some lawmakers pushed for the law saying it prevents victims and witnesses from feeling scared to testify in court.

However, critics argue it gives illegal immigrants too many protections.
