Over 10 million immigrants live, work, and pay taxes in California. They are our family, our friends, and our coworkers. Recently federal agents have taken actions to detain and deport our law-abiding neighbors, tearing families apart. Undocumented residents are afraid to use community resources or cooperate with law enforcement efforts in their neighborhoods for fear of deportation. Take action to protect our immigrant families and values!

A bill to create landmark protections for immigrant families living in California has passed the state Senate and is now in the Assembly. Tell your Representative to vote YES on the California Values Act (SB 54)! This bill will make sure our schools, health facilities, and courthouses are safe and accessible to all Californians and prevent state and local law enforcement from acting as federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to detain and deport immigrants.

Passing SB 54 in the Assembly is not guaranteed! Tell your Assembly member to vote YES on SB 54, the California Values Act!

Find out more about SB 54 in our recent San Jose Mercury News op ed. Stand with the League! We won’t stand for families being torn apart.

Sincerely,

Helen Hutchison
