For over thirty years Oregon law has prohibited the use of state and local resources to enforce Federal Immigration law if a person’s only crime is being in the country illegally. The original bill passed the Oregon House by a vote of 58 to 1 and the Senate by 29-1 in 1987 and was signed by Governor Neil Goldschmidt.
