TAKE ACTION! SUPPORT SB 54 TO PREVENT AVOIDABLE DEPORTATIONS IN CALIFORNIA
SB 54, the California Values Act, was introduced on Dec 5, 2016 and formally announced on Dec 7, 2016 by Senate President Pro Tempore de Leon. This important bill aims to get state and local law enforcement out of the deportation business. The current administration has made it clear where they stand on issues related to immigration. As such now more than ever, we need our state to take bold actions to protect all in our community against deportations. SB 54 cleared the Senate Public Safety Committee on Jan 31, 2017. It will head to the Senate Appropriations Committee next and then a full Senate vote as early as February 21st (tentative).PICO CA network, and our partners ACLU and the ICE out of CA coalition.
