Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher Blasts SD Supervisors For Decision to Consider Joining Trump Lawsuits

Thursday, March 29, 2018

SAN DIEGO  – (Thursday, March 29, 2018) – California State Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher (D-San Diego) issued the following statement today following news that the San Diego County Board of Supervisors is considering the idea of joining the Trump Administration’s lawsuit against California and the state’s California Values Act.

“Given the diversity of our region, it’s unbelievable that our San Diego County supervisors would even consider the idea of joining Trump’s lawsuit against the California Values Act and our state’s other new immigration laws.  These law keeps immigrant communities safe by ensuring that people who witness crimes -- or who themselves are crime victims -- can call local police without fear of ICE agents raiding their homes or deporting their loved ones. As the supervisors should be aware, people who commit a serious or violent offense are not shielded or protected in any way by these new laws. I seriously hope the Board of Supervisors has the wisdom and basic decency to avoid linking arms with Trump and his fearmongering agenda.”
