Oppose anti-immigration measure

We urge you to contact your legislators in opposition to SB 275 and AB 190. These "anti-sanctuary city" bills promote undemocratic and unsafe immigration procedures. If enacted, this legislation would break up families and make our communities less safe. Of the many reasons to oppose these bills, these stand out:

  1. Municipalities should have the ability to protect local individuals and families from fear and predation.
  2. Public health and safety are threatened when people are afraid to seek healthcare or call the police.  
  3. Increased local militarization and prison growth will only drain our economy.
