Petition Text

Pass SB 54 so no California resources are used to support ICE detainers or deportations

Why is this important?

SB 54, the California Values Act, authored by President pro Tem of the State Senate, Kevin de León, prohibits state and local law enforcement agencies, and school police and security departments, from using resources to investigate, interrogate, detain, detect, or arrest persons for immigration enforcement purposes.

California needs to lead the way and "be the wall of justice" (de Leon) that protects, and advances, social equity and justice. The California legislature must immediately pass SB 54.

California, United States

Reasons for signing

  • I want our law abiding communities of undocumented immigrants to be protected from deportation, and I want them to know they are protected. It is not reasonable to punish good, hard-working people for trying to escape poverty and violence. Everyone deserves to feel safe and have their essential needs met, which this state can provide for many.
  • ICE should not be able have indiscriminate access to peoples private information or records just because. This destroys families and scares law abiding individuals who contribute to our society with their work and paid taxes. SB54 will prevent this.
  • People unite
