Tell Governor Jerry Brown: Sign the TRUST Act Now
California is so close to passing the TRUST Act, an "anti-Arizona" immigration law that would stop police from detaining people who pose no threat to public safety and are unjustly targeted for deportation.
Under federal programs like "Secure Communities," 72,000 people have been deported from California despite 70% of them having no criminal record or having committed only minor infractions such as driving with a broken taillight.
This is unacceptable--which is why we need the California TRUST Act right now. It's already passed the state Senate and Assembly and all that stands in its way is a signature from the governor. Please sign this petition telling Gov. Brown to stand up for the safety and dignity of all Californians by signing the TRUST Act into law.Take action
