LWVC Action Alert
Take Action to Protect Immigrant Families
Over 10 million immigrants live, work, and pay taxes in California. They are our family, our friends, and our coworkers. Recently federal agents have taken actions to detain and deport our law-abiding neighbors, tearing families apart. Undocumented residents are afraid to use community resources or cooperate with law enforcement efforts in their neighborhoods for fear of deportation. Take action here to protect our immigrant families and values!
A bill to create landmark protections for immigrant families living in California has passed the state Senate and is now in the Assembly. Tell your Representative to vote YES on the California Values Act (SB 54)! This bill will make sure our schools, health facilities, and courthouses are safe and accessible to all Californians and prevent state and local law enforcement from acting as federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to detain and deport immigrants.
The status of this bill is here
Federal Election Commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub has sent a letter, dated March 22, to President Trump insisting the president produce evidence to back up his outlandish claims that millions voted illegally in the 2016 election.The League is joining with allied organizations and calling for the President to produce evidence to support his unlawful voting claims – or put these claims to rest. LWV National is asking for your signature as co-signer of Commissioner Weintraub’s letter, please sign up here.
Update: On May 11, Trump ordered a voter fraud investigation, thrusting back into the spotlight an issue that few other Republican leaders want to tackle.
