Donald Trump’s Presidency poses a direct threat to immigrants, Muslims, people of color, LGBTQ+ people, women and many others. And he's not wasting any time to take executive action that attacks undocumented people, refugees, the muslim community, and more. California legislators must do all they can to aggressively disrupt Trump’s plans and stand with our must vulnerable communities.
Following the election, California's Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de León introduced the California Values Act (SB 54), a bill that's critical to protecting immigrant communities in California.
The California Values Act would would resist Trump’s efforts by:
- Prohibiting state and local resources from being used to investigate, detain, detect, report or arrest persons for immigration enforcement purposes.
- Banning state and local resources from being used to facilitate the creation of a national registry based on religion.
- Preventing state agencies from collecting or sharing immigration information unless necessary to perform agency duties.
- Ensuring that California schools, hospitals, and courthouses remain safe and accessible to all California residents regardless of immigration status.
