The California Values Act (SB54) ensures that no state or local resources are diverted to fuel any attempt by the federal government to carry out mass deportations. However, the Federal Government has filed a lawsuit against the State of California in reaction to the passage of this Act, and it has been announced that the San Diego County Board of Supervisors will consider joining the Federal lawsuit against the state.
The majority of The Board is considering taking a position that conflates the lack of legal status in the United States, an administrative law, with crimes against persons and property. The majority of undocumented Californians work hard to provide for families in and out of California without committing a crime defined by the state. Many of these people have dependent children who are U.S. citizens. The children know this and are affected by the terrifying notion of becoming de facto orphans.
Several studies have defined and followed what happens to children of undocumented immigrants after a parent is deported. These are some of the negative effects that they endure:
|Poor health||Food insecurity||Poor educational performance|
|Housing insecurity||Depression||Lowered conflict resolution capacity|
San Diego County’s social services have enough of a strain placed on them without self-inflicted injuries that would add to those loads. The California National Party calls on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors to
- take no action in support of U.S. vs. California, Brown and Becerra
- protect key legislation:
• No state or local resources are diverted to fuel any attempt by the federal government to carry out mass deportations and that our schools, our hospitals, and our courthouses are safe spaces for everyone in our community.
• Restricts employers from assisting immigration investigations without a warrant
• Mandates state monitoring of immigration detention facilities
• Restricts expansion of immigration detention facilities in California
- create a county that nurtures and supports children to become healthy and successful.
