RELEASE: ICE out of California prisons and jails

Los Angeles, CA – In support of the introduction of the California VISION Act by Assembly Member Rob Bonta, NDLON campaign director SG Sarmiento released the following statement:

“We are grateful to Assembly Member Bonta for his leadership in introducing the California Vision Act. We look forward to working with lawmakers in Sacramento to build upon the progress we have made in making California a sanctuary state. Community safety is improved for everyone when we have a criminal justice system that treats everyone equally, whether immigrant, citizen, or visitor.

“While Donald Trump calls attention to his failed war on sanctuary cities as a part of a racist election strategy, we anticipate support will continue to grow throughout California to kick ICE out of prisons and jails.

“And for those coming to visit soon, know that we defy Donald Trump’s hate, and we welcome you to the sanctuary state.”
