ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has vetoed two bills supported by immigration advocates.

One of the bills vetoed Wednesday would prohibit local jails from entering into agreements with federal authorities on immigration-related detentions. The other would require state employees to deny inspection of records or use of facial recognition technology by any federal agency seeking to enforce immigration law without a warrant.

The Democratic-controlled General Assembly passed both measures with enough votes to override the Republican governor’s vetoes.
