When Donald Trump set his anti-immigrant agenda in motion, California lawmakers and Gov. Brown were among the first to stand up and say: Not in our state. We need to make sure they put their words into action now.
California sheriffs are ramping up their opposition to the California Values Act (S.B. 54), and Trump’s racist administration is doubling down on its threats to punish states that refuse to cooperate with immigration enforcement. Now it seems that California lawmakers and Gov. Brown are caving to the opposition’s pressure and trying to water down the bill.
To get all of the immigrant protections in S.B. 54 on the books, we must be relentless in our activism and show up in force on Sept. 7. Click here to RSVP

Trump’s war on immigrants is escalating. Last week, he pardoned the country’s number one racial profiler, former Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who abused thousands of immigrants in his horrific “Tent City” detention camp. And now, Trump is seriously considering ending Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals – a highly successful program that has given opportunity and peace of mind to nearly 1 million immigrants who came to the country as children.
California passing S.B. 54 could shift the momentum. The California Values Act would build a firewall between local police and immigration enforcement, prohibit state agencies and employees from sharing information about an individual’s immigration status with the federal government and, most importantly, it would serve as model legislation for other states resisting Trump’s hateful, anti-immigrant regime.
