In an attack on sanctuary cities, the change purports to prohibit a wide range of state and local policies limiting collaboration in deportations. Coming in response to growing local opposition to the Trump deportation agenda, the change follows an apparent retreat yesterday from the Attorney General in the wake of a federal court decision enjoining Trump’s previous attempt to cut federal funding to sanctuary cities, which the court found likely unconstitutional. In response to the proposal, Jessica Bansal, Litigation Director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network issued the following statement: “Scapegoating immigrants and sanctuary cities has been a centerpiece of Trump’s agenda since he announced his candidacy. But Jeff Session’s recent memo and the White House budget make several things clear: First, sanctuary policies that prevent police from collaborating in Trump’s deportation agenda comply with existing law. Second, to make Trump’s rhetoric about sanctuary cities a reality, the law would have to change. But the Trump Administration cannot change the law by fiat. Thankfully, neither a proposed budget nor a vituperative White House press release can alter the Constitution. The Tenth Amendment prohibits the President from conscripting state and local police into his deportation force. Third, the more the White House tries to shape local police in the image of Sheriff Arpaio, the more states and local governments will rebel by passing policies that protect immigrants and public safety. In California, lawmakers are well under way to doing just that.” ###

Jerry Brown: The California Values Act is Good Law and Good Policy Los Angeles – On Wednesday, over 100 law professors from across the United States, including Dean Chemerinsky of UC Irvine and Dean Johnson of UC Davis, sent a letter to California Governor Jerry Brown and members of the California legislature affirming that California has full legal authority to adopt Senate Bill 54, the California Values Act, which would limit use of state and local resources to assist Trump’s deportation force. As sanctuary policies gain steam across the nation, the letter affirms that SB 54 will “ensure compliance with the constitution.” This show of support for the Values Act from some of the nation’s top legal minds comes one week after the Sheriff of Santa Cruz County endorsed the bill. The letter is laden with citations to cases from the United States Supreme Court and other authorities affirming that, under the Tenth Amendment, “California is entitled to be free from federal coercion” when it comes to its own police powers. This includes the right to ensure that public  institutions “remain safe and accessible” to all California residents. The letter also details recent cases holding local law enforcement liable for detaining people for federal immigration authorities and suggests that the Values Act is necessary to uphold California residents’ Fourth Amendment rights. Christopher Lasch, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, said: "The Constitution is clear about California’s authority to lead the way in resisting mass deportation through SB 54. This important legislation is not only fully within California’s power, it’s actually necessary to honor the demands of the Constitution and bring a a much-needed dose of justice to temper the racialized, out-of-control immigration enforcement we are seeing under the Trump administration.” “Trump is attempting to bully local governments into acting as his deportation force” said Jessica Karp Bansal, NDLON Litigation Director. “But as today’s overwhelming show of support from legal scholars makes clear, the law is not on his side.  California can—and must—protect its residents by passing SB 54 and keeping our schools, health facilities, and police out of the deportation business.” ###

Safe jobs are every worker’s right” said Flor Rodriguez from the CLEAN Carwash Campaign. Every day, about 13 workers die from workplace injuries, with Latino immigrant workers at a particularly high risk. Unions, worker centers, health and safety experts, and other worker advocates have seen a surge in fear from workers given the current anti-immigrant climate from the Trump Administration. “Given the current political context and persecution of immigrants, bad employers feel emboldened to disregard labor regulations and the safety of workers. We must fight alongside workers that stand up for their rights.” Loyda Alvarado, Workers Rights Organizer, NDLON “Today, on Worker Memorial Day, we urge the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency to show leadership in the face of the harmful and misguided policies from the Federal Administration. When immigrant workers are afraid of reporting poor conditions, all workers suffer,” said Maria Elena Durazo, General Vice President for Immigration, Civil Rights, and Diversity for UNITE HERE. Advocates are highlighting the critical need for trust between immigrant workers and state agencies as spelled out in SB-54 (Sen Pro Tem Deleon– CA Values Act) – to prevent worker exploitation and to ensure safe jobs for all workers. And speakers invited the public to gather May 1st at MacArthur Park at 11 am in solidarity with worker and immigrant rights groups.“Given the current political context and persecution of immigrants, bad employers feel emboldened to disregard labor regulations and the safety of workers. We must fight alongside workers that stand up for their rights.” Loyda Alvarado, Workers Rights Organizer, NDLON Speakers include Maria Elena Durazo, UNITE HERE; Flor Rodriguez, CLEAN Car Wash Campaign, Loyda Alvarado, NDLON; Maegan Ortiz, IDEPSCA; Kevin Riley, UCLA-LOSH; Jose Ponce, a former Millennium Reinforcing worker; and David Huerta, SEIU-USWW on behalf of the May Day Coalition.…

NDLON Responds to DHS Creation of VOICE

In response, Salvador Sarmiento, National Campaign Coordinator for NDLON, issued the following statement: “The goal of this program is to instill fear of non-white immigrants. It is another deliberate step taken by the Trump administration towards creating institutions that legitimize racist propaganda. That’s what this is about, instilling fear in order to subject people to double suspicion, double punishment, and deprivation of due process.     It is blatantly racist and a dangerous new tool for extremists and white supremacists.   Trump’s weapon is fear. Trump wants white people to fear anyone who is not white.  And he wants all of us to fear him and his administration.    Our goal is to expose the truth about the Trump-Sessions agenda. Today, every one of us should be making it clear that we will not comply with that agenda, and that we will do everything we can to defy it.”   ###

Los Angeles – On Tuesday, Judge William H. Orrick issued an injunction blocking President Donald Trump’s threatened plan to take federal funding away from so-called sanctuary cities. Judge Orrick ruled, “[Trump's] Order cannot constitutionally place new conditions on federal funds.” In response, Pablo Alvarado, Director of NDLON issued the following statement: “Today's decision is vindication for those who are resisting President Trump’s white supremacist agenda.  Local governments don’t just have a legal right to fight back, they have a moral obligation to protect people most under attack. "To be clear, President Trump and Attorney General Sessions will continue their efforts to coerce and bully localities, especially those that take a stand for the values we most cherish, but they will only succeed if we let them.  Our responsibility is to protect our communities and to defend bedrock Constitutional rights. "While we salute Judge Orrick's decision, we cannot be complacent and rely exclusively on the courts. This moment must embolden all of us. No one should sacrifice their rights. And our political leaders must step into the fight against Trump’s racist agenda in defiance of his attempts to instill fear and terror in our communities. When the President is a conduit for white supremacy, local and state government must represent the people.” ###

NDLON May Day 2016

NDLON Message for May Day 2017 1) We support the call for a national general strike.   We are not here to ask for dignity, we are already dignified.   And we – immigrants in the US – already subsidize the U.S. economy.   We are here to demand the full equality that we are owed, and business as usual cannot continue if you do not recognize that. 2)  While our resistance is national, May 1st is a moment to advance our local demands and organizing.   There is NO excuse for local officials that have been complicit or silent in the face of Trump's offensive against immigrants and sanctuary cities. 3)  This is an opportunity to build with our sister movements, and across industries, neighborhoods, and ethnicities.   Our movement is stronger when it is diverse and inclusive, and when together, we reject the attacks on undocumented workers, black lives, the LGBT community, and women.  No one left behind. ###

According to the the LA Times, “the letters went to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, as well as officials in Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Miami, Milwaukee and New York City.” In the statement, the Department of Justice says that american cities are “crumbling under the weight of illegal immigration and violent crime” Pablo Alvarado, NDLONs Executive Director issued the following statement: "The DOJ’s attempt to scare local governments away from resisting Trump’s deportation agenda will most certainly have the opposite effect. It will likely embolden lawmakers to pass policies that protect public safety, as opposed to criminalize and target large portions of its community. In California, the CA Values Act, (Deleon, SB-54) does just that. Not only does it limit cooperation between immigration and local law enforcement, but it ensures that state and local institutions do not participate in Trumps deportation agenda." ### *** NDLONs Directors & legal team is available for comment.

But this initiative- meant to intimidate and bully local officials-  has had the opposite effect.  It is unaccountable even by Trump Administration standards, and it has exposed the Administration’s inability to control the growing rebellion against Trump’s xenophobic agenda.     “In California, for example, SB54 ("CA Values Act”) will likely pass, and when it does,  it will constitute a repudiation of President Trump’s criminalizing agenda.   As long as Trump advances an agenda fear and hate, the consensus against it will only grow stronger and louder.”   ### Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued remarks on Tuesday morning “renewing the administration's commitment” to “criminal immigration enforcement” citing a series of new priorities issued towards federal prosecutors. NDLON Directors are available for comment.***

"This bill stands for the proposition that immigrants should not be subject to double suspicion and double punishment.  Instead, immigrants deserve the same due process and right to rehabilitation as the native born.  This bill is about equality. "As SB54 moves to the Assembly and then to the Governor's desk, it will invariably come under attack from the same forces that propelled Trump into office.  We expect Governor Jerry Brown and our Assembly Members to show the same courage that immigrants like Romulo Avelica's family and thousands more across California demonstrate every day.  Lawmakers owe it to them, and to all the people of California, to stand strong and choose courage over fear." Jessica Karp Bansal, NDLON's Litigation Director, added: "SB 54 is a beacon of light and sanity in the face of the President Trump's cruel, dishonest, and unrelenting campaign against immigrants.  California has zero reasons to help Trump tear immigrant mothers from their children and—especially in the face of planned cuts to federal programs—hundreds of more important things to spend its time and money on. "Other states across the nation can and should follow suit.  Opting out of Trump's deportation disaster is not only their right, it's their obligation." For more information about the bill, see the linked factsheet here.   ###

Sarmiento, Legislative Director for the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) issued the following statement: "The Trump Administration appears to be good at doing two things:  stoking fear and issuing threats.  Today, Jeff Sessions did both in a blatant effort to change the story.  Immigrant-bashing has been Trump's most potent political weapon, and now sanctuary city-bashing is apparently Session's top priority. "The racist exploitation of tragedy helped propel Trump into office; and since occupying the White House, the Trump Administration has persisted in a divisive effort to make citizens scared of non-citizens and to make immigrants scared of government.  The Trump Administration is now trying to make sanctuary cities scared too.  Today, AG Sessions is bullying sanctuary cities by threatening to withhold money.  Tomorrow, the head of Trump's deportation force will take the unprecedented step of lobbying against California's SB-54, proposed legislation to wall off immigration from criminal law enforcement. "Federal courts will vindicate the rights of cities to refuse Trump's deportation agenda.  They will also likely find Trump's deportation policies in flagrant violation of the Constitution.  But make no mistake about it:  the political battle lines that have been drawn are between courage and fear.  Now is a time to affirm our shared values." ###
For Immediate Release // Please Excuse Cross PostingFebruary 18th, 2017Contact: Jose Eduardo Sanchez, Koreatown Immigrant Workers Alliance (KIWA), 323 905 4923; Armando Carmona, National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON), 323 250 3018; Thousands of Angelenos March to City Hall to Demand Sanctuary Policies Community Groups and Organizations Present Sanctuary Platform (Los Angeles) – Today, over 30 organizations join the people of Los Angeles in defining the term “sanctuary city” at the “Free the People Immigration March -  Sanctuary for All.” The groups are taking to the streets and call for sanctuary policies. Those targeted by the current federal government’s policies – including immigrants, Muslims, Blacks, LGBTQ individuals – are also declaring Los Angeles a sanctuary city. “We are here today to issue an urgent call to Mayor Garcetti and to all of our elected officials to protect us with more than words – we demand action, and we have provided a platform of concrete policies that, together, would transform Los Angeles into a true sanctuary city,” said Ameena Qazi, Executive Director of the National Lawyers Guild of Los Angeles (NLG-LA), one of the march sponsors. A broad coalition of organizations, representing many facets of our diverse city, are presenting a slate of policy demands that reflect a community vision of safety and protection. “We need bold leadership now from our elected officials. Los Angeles must be a beacon for its residents and for the nation by standing up to the Trump administration’s hateful agenda,” said Maegan Ortiz of the Instituto de Educacion Popular del Sur de California (IDEPSCA), another of the dozens of march sponsors. The Coalition demands that LA City and County leaders:   1. Enact unequivocal sanctuary policies that:    a.    Prevent collection of unnecessary information about immigration status;     b.    Protect private information collected about residents;     c.    Prohibit local resources (including law enforcement) from being used for federal immigration enforcement or         the establishment of a Muslim registry; and     d.    Establish a body to monitor and oversee immigration enforcement actions locally. 2. Refuse to enact the forthcoming national stop-and-frisk policy, which will exacerbate the targeting of communities of color, place the most vulnerable communities under increased threat, and feed mass-criminalization and mass-incarceration. 3. Disentangle local law enforcement from federal immigration enforcement: Get ICE out of Los Angeles Sheriffs Department (LASD) jails and modernize the Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) Special Order 40, the police policy…

This statement comes as ICE agents repeatedly attempted to counter claims made by immigration advocates and lawyers regarding the arrests of “over 100 immigrants” through home raids in several cities in southern California. In response, David Abud, Regional Organizer from the National Day Laborer Organizing Network issued the following statement: "We recognize these raids as an effort by ICE and the new administration to sow chaos and intimidate our communities. They are attempting to normalize these attacks towards our community and we must be ready, at a moments notice, to mobilize and resist. In the face of these efforts, we will remain vigilant, focused, and organized. We are now more than ever emboldened to fight every single deportation and all further attacks on our communities in whatever form they may appear." “Ironically, this most recent attempt to terrorize Los Angeles residents will likely compel local elected officials to take more aggressive actions themselves.  When Mr Trump was first elected, we heard many statements offering moral support for communities the has threatened.  Now it is time for leaders to action and to demonstrate the courage that immigrants are showing in response to Mr Trump’s bullying.” “In Los Angeles, we will continue to push for Universal Representation and to make it a Sanctuary City that provides safety for all of its residents. Throughout California, a consensus is emerging in support of SB-54 (The "Values Act,” Senator de Leon) which would ensure public safety for all Calfornia residents.” ###

We have an obligation right now to stand with those who are already being targeted and to defend our shared values of inclusion and equality." ###

In the speech, President Trump issued a “call to action” to form a “new beginning” between the relationship between law enforcement and communities across the US. Only a day before, Senator Jeff Sessions, current nominee for Attorney General met with Sheriffs from some of the largest counties of California to discuss ways to expand law enforcement authority in detaining and transferring immigrants to ICE. In response, Chris Newman, Legal Director at the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) issued the following statement: “Today’s speech lays bare that Mr. Trump’s strategy is to terrorize the American public as a political response to his own plunging popularity. However, Mr. Trump's effort to sow fear as a means of asserting executive authority will be met by resistance from protesters, from local lawmakers, and from the courts.  Underneath Mr. Trump's racist rhetoric and his weaponization of fear lies a more sinister  agenda to have the federal government take over local policing.  Ironically, Mr. Trump’s policy will balkanize immigration policy and undermine national unity, and it will erode public safety by widening distrust of law enforcement agencies.   Invariably though, some sheriffs will accept Mr. Trump’s invitation to join his mass deportation force, and they will likely suffer the same fate as Joe Arpaio in Arizona.  But the ultimate effect of today’s speech will likely be to strengthen the resolve of local lawmakers seeking to defend their communities from Mr. Trump’s reign of terror.   In California, for example, today’s speech will only further propel an emerging statewide consensus in favor of sanctuary state legislation that will separate criminal and immigration law enforcement.” ### For more information see: CA Values Act Clears State Senate Public Safety Committee The Human Rights Consequences of Sheriff & ICE Collaboration in Los Angeles In Face of Trump’s Threats, California is Doubling Down- Not Backing Down- on Sanctuary protections
