CHD Supports California Values Act

BE IT RESOLVED that  the  Board  of  Directors of California Human Development  hereby  supports  SB 54  the California Values Act which  would  prevent  the use of state and local public resources to aid federal immigration and customs enforcement (ICE) agents in deportation actions. SB 54 is consistent  with  our  values of  supporting  the millions  of undocumented residents  that  are here in California  pursuing  and contributing to the  American Dream.  We note  that  the  California Values Act does not prevent state and local departments or agencies from complying with a  judicial   warrant   to  transfer   violent   offenders   into   federal  custody  for immigration enforcement purposes.  We also note  that SB 54 supports public safety  because  when  victims  of  crime  do  not  come  forward for  fear  of immigration consequences, the negative impact on public safety impacts all of us.

Duly adopted  by the  Board of Directors  of California  Human Development  at the Regular Board meeting in Santa Rosa,California on January 28th, 2017.
