Religious Leaders Urge Support for SB54 Immigrant Protections

Religious leaders are urging Governor Jerry Brown to support Senate Bill 54, a measure often referred to as the “Sanctuary State” bill. The measure would limit police cooperation with federal immigration officials. The religious groups say they want to be sure California continues to welcome people fleeing poverty and violence in their homelands, and to assure immigrants and refugees are treated with dignity and respect.
