Tomorrow! July 25th at 5:30pm at 300 W. 3rd St. Oxnard City Council.
As we collectively advocate for sanctuary school zones, safe hospitals, safe courtrooms and safe communities the community of Oxnard is requesting our support at their next City Council Meeting as they need Ventura County residents to support the first City Council VOTE for a Sanctuary/Safe city in Ventura County.
We will meet outside City Hall at 5:15 pm with positive signs demonstrating our committment to SAFE/SANCTUARY Cities in Ventura County.
August 23rd 5:30 to 7:00pm in Westlake. When we meet on the 23rd our California Assembly will have returned from their summer recess. We will share and provide updates on Immigration policy and updates on bills in both the Assembly and the Senate.
Other things to do:
While our state Assembly is on summer recess:
Continue to contact, engage, and encourage Assemblypersons Irwin and Monique Limón to value our Immigrant communiites in their districts by voting “YES” on SB54.
This is a overview of a speech given by Congressman Luis Gutierrez after meeting with the Dept. of Homeland Security after meeting about DACA. Watch the video with the link at the bottom.
The “Bridge Act” (S.128), supported by our Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, would grant legal status to immigrants brought to this country at a young age.
But Trump and his far-right supporters have already hinted that they won’t support this version of the Dream Act without adding more funds to hunt down and deport other immigrants.
To win permanent protection for all of our communities as well as our DACA youth, we need bold leadership from our Attorneys General.
What should you say? Quote this verbatim if you’d like:
“Hello, I’m calling to ask the Attorney General to come out publicly to defend the DACA program.
(If you’re feeling feisty, add this…)
This program has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of immigrant youth across the country and it must be protected. I expect my attorney general to support the immigrant community and protect DACA.”
