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.
