We are excited to announce that Senator Kevin De León, the President Pro Tempore of the California Senate, will be our featured guest on July 20, 2017 for a discussion on the important topic of immigration.
Senator De León is the author of SB 54, which ensures that no state or local resources are diverted to assist the federal government to carry out mass deportations and that our schools, our hospitals, and our courthouses remain as safe spaces for everyone in our community.
“California will not become a cog in the Trump deportation machine,” De León said. “This is not a monarchy, and I know he fancies himself as a king, but this is a republic.” “[Trump’s executive actions] are counterproductive. They are divisive and unnecessary. They won’t make us safer. They wont bring back jobs. They won’t solve our economic challenges.”
