This bill reforms the impact of S-Comm in California. S-Comm has been devastating to immigrant communities. It also has not made anyone safer. Instead, mind S-Comm destroys TRUST between immigrant communities and local police, and unfairly burdens local governments.
The TRUST Act brings national attention to the movement, spearheaded by NDLON, to “uncover the truth” about this dangerous program. The Governors of Illinois, Massachusetts, and New York all announced last Spring that they demand to “opt out” out of S-Comm as a whole. California also must push back against this deeply flawed program.
This reform is needed more than ever because California is leading the country in the number of deportations under this program. But together, we can turn California into “leader” in challenging these deportations
