Advisory: Senator de León Meets with Californians to Call for Action on Broken Immigration System

Senator de León Meets with Californians to Call for Action on Broken Immigration System SACRAMENTO – Tomorrow, President Trump will coordinate with Republican politicians from the small coalition of anti-immigrant cities and counties in Southern California, to overturn SB 54. The California Values Act keeps California communities safer by securing a baseline of trust between residents and law enforcement by preventing ICE from commandeering officers for its deportation force. It is clear President Trump has no interest in talking to real law enforcement experts, such as LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, as to why these policies make our communities safer. The cherry picked group of politicians he plans to meet with do not represent California’s support for immigrant communities and are actively engaged in misrepresenting the substance of SB 54. He has not met with police chiefs, has not spoken with local leaders, and has not made any effort to understand policing on a community level. Hardworking immigrant families in America contribute to our society, build our economy, and make this state and our country great. Tomorrow, real people impacted by America’s broken immigration system will meet in the heart of Los Angeles with Senator de León for a press availability to discuss the need for comprehensive immigration reforms.
