Support Bill To Make California A ‘Sanctuary State’

Target: Anthony Rendon, California State Assembly Speaker

Goal: Support proposed law that increases immigrant protections and makes California a “sanctuary state.”

The Trump administration has cracked down on deportation policies throughout America since Donald Trump assumed the presidency. In the wake of these sweeping changes (based largely on bigoted views Trump vocalized throughout his campaign), many states have begun to focus on legislation to protect immigrants within their borders.

The federal government’s new stance on immigration has put more immigrants in danger of being deported. To combat this, the California State Senate has approved a bill that increases protections for immigrants. The bill prevents local law enforcement agencies from using certain resources to investigate, report, detain or arrest people solely for immigrations violations.

This law effectively makes California a “sanctuary state”. Sanctuary cities throughout the United States have practices in place that shield criminals from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and prohibit agencies from complying with detainers from ICE. The new California law would prevent illegal immigrants from being turned over to ICE when they’re facing no criminal charges. The measure is now moving to the California State Assembly for a vote.

Sign the below petition to voice your support for this bill protecting immigrants in California.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Rendon,

The California State Senate has passed a bill that provides increased protection for immigrants in your state, effectively making California a “sanctuary state”. The measure prevents illegal immigrants from being turned over to ICE for deportation when they face no criminal charges.

Since Donald Trump assumed the presidency, his administration has made it a higher priority to seek out and deport illegal immigrants across the United States. This measure helps to protect immigrants from being targeted when they have not broken a law, a practice that has become a bigger problem under the Trump administration.

This measure is an important step toward making California a safer place for immigrants who are in danger of being separated from their families thanks to this administration’s harsh stance on immigration. I urge you to work in the California State Assembly to pass this measure protecting immigrants in California from deportation, and to continue combatting the bigotry-based immigration policies enacted by Donald Trump.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. California is to be commended for having the COURAGE and INTEGRITY to take a stand against the unfair and tyrannical actions being taken by the Trump administration against immigrants and refugees, and a stand against Trump’s attempts to demonize immigrants and refugees.
