Protect Our Cities,
Say NO to SB54

SB54 is a departure from California’s “Felons First” policy under the Trust Act. By returning serious felons to our streets instead of cooperating with the federal government to have them deported, the Sacramento politicians are making our neighborhoods less safe.

Law enforcement will be forbidden from communication with federal agents regarding serious felons in their custody or allowing federal agents access to interview felons in their jails, those guilty of crimes such as:

  • Date rape
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Participation in criminal street gang
  • Shooting at an occupied car or home
  • Burglary
  • Assault with a deadly weapon

Mayor Bill Wells
City of El Cajon

My chief responsibility as a Mayor is keeping the people of my city safe. SB 54 undermines that foundational duty and puts lives at great risk. SB 54 forces cities to shield violent serious felons — rapists and child molesters  — who have served their sentence, are out on bond, or who are out on bail from federal immigration authorities. Under SB 54, No matter how dangerous such a person might be, cities must allow these criminals back into our communities. Perhaps this earns headlines for Sacramento politicians, but for the families I serve, it threatens their lives. Mayors for Safe Cities believes this issue is too serious for political posturing. Our residents have the right to live free from fear and from the danger brought on by this reprehensible policy
