We, the citizens of the State of California, ask the members of the Assembly and the Senate to vote against Senate Bill 54. The bill undermines the security and safety of California residents, and further degrades our judicial system and the integrity of our laws.
We believe that SB 54 is a departure from California’s “Felons First” policy, and as such should be rejected by the California State Legislature.
We believe that SB 54 puts our state at significant risk of losing federal funding for programs such as the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program and the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program for Local Sheriffs.
As such, we urge our elected state legislators to vote NO on SB54.
