These are treacherous times and the most vulnerable in our communities are at risk. Rather than honoring the contributions of our diverse populations, the Trump administration is pursuing inhumane policies that are spreading fear and uncertainty throughout immigrant communities and threatening to tear families apart.
SB 54, the California Values Act, would prohibit state and local law enforcement agencies, and school police and security departments, from using local resources to investigate, interrogate, detain, detect, or arrest persons for immigration enforcement purposes.
