Immigration y ICE

Immigration can be a tough subject. We all want safe, secure borders and a dynamic economy. Yet, good-intentioned people can disagree on how to fix our immigration system and make it work for everyone. The current Administration's crackdown on undocumented Californians and their families, however, has left many living in fear. Over the years, politicians from both parties have tried to work on a legislation to address immigrants who came to the country with their parents when they were children (DREAMers), their families, residents on temporary protected status permits (TPS program), as well as other undocumented residents. That bill never materialized.

Now, the futures of over millions of people still await Congressional action...

And lives are left in limbo as the current administration continues to play political limbo... 

On a national level, we need to not only change the game, we need to change the players in the game so we may finally establish meaningful legislation that will create stability and safety in our communities, promote economic opportunity and provide required amnesty and citizenship paths for DACA and TPS applicants and their families.

On a state and local level, we need to support meaningful sanctuary policies, including maintaining & reinforcing school district policies, prioritize funding for rapid response programs and legal y support related organizations that provide legal and support services to defend undocumented immigrants facing detention &/or deportation. We also need comprehensive oversight of the implementation and enforcement of SB-54 including monitoring and auditing law enforcement's contact and dealings with ICE to ensure stated practices match with stated policies as well as the intent of the regulations. Such oversight must include a mandate to eliminate any voluntary cooperation between law enforcement and ICE, that Law Enforcement track and thoroughly report any and all interactions with ICE, and hold TRUTH Act public forums as mandated under the law. 

Additionally, we must ensure humane treatment of all persons being held in state and county detention centers and jails. All Law Enforcement personnel must be held accountable for any and all mistreatment/abuse of all persons, codified in a Detainees' Bill of Rights and legislation that ensure Detainees' due process.
