Sheriff McDonnell: Don’t Side with Trump Against California!

[Español más abajo]

Join us to protest LA County Sheriff Jim McDonnell for going against the CA Values Act!

(Please share this event with all of your networks)

SB54 – known as the VALUES ACT – is simple. It’s a California state bill that separates the criminal justice system and the immigration system. Think of it like a big, beautiful wall between local police and Trump’s deportation machine.

But at this critical time, LA County Sheriff Jim McDonnell has chosen to stand with Trump, and is actively instigating CA Sheriffs and Senators to oppose the bill. We need to make sure there is a strong response denouncing his about-face, and sending a clear message that Trump’s politics won’t be tolerated in California.

If we work together, we can pass SB54 in California and create a model for the rest of the nation, saying loud and clear “Our local police should protect ALL members of our communities, and not help enforce Trump’s agenda of hate”.

Please, join us to tell Sheriff McDonnell to stand up for SB54, the VALUES act, and stand with immigrant families!

SB54 – conocido como el VALUES ACT – es simple. Es un proyecto de ley del estado de California que separa el sistema de justicia penal y el sistema de inmigración. Piense en él como una pared grande, hermosa entre la policía local y la máquina de la deportación de Trump.

Pero en este momento crítico, el Sheriff del Condado de Los Ángeles, Jim McDonnell, ha decidido estar del lado de Trump, y está activamente instigando a los Sheriffs y Senadores de CA a oponerse a la ley. Necesitamos asegurarnos de que haya una fuerte respuesta denunciando su actitud, y enviando un claro mensaje de que la política de Trump no será tolerada en California.

Si trabajamos juntos, podemos pasar SB54 en California y crear un modelo para el resto de la nación, diciendo alto y claro: “Nuestra policía local debe proteger a TODOS los miembros de nuestras comunidades, y no ayudar a hacer cumplir la agenda de Trump de odio”.

¡Por favor, únase a nosotros para decirle al sheriff McDonnell para defender SB54, la ley VALUES, y estar con familias inmigrantes!

Learn How to Stop Deportations

Deportations are happening. Here you can see the heartbreaking video that a daughter took from the car while her father was being detained. The man was driving his daughters to school and has lived in the country 20 years.

LA Mayor Eric Garcetti spoke out and said, “We want more answers. And we need to make sure that this is not the beginning of a dangerous and dark time here, where people are afraid to go to school, people are afraid to drop their kids off, people afraid to go to work. That would be troubling for our economy and the safety of our streets.”

There were raids in Pasadena over the past few weeks. What can be done to stop this cruel and self-defeating policy?

Come to POP!’s Popular Assembly on March 18 to learn what can be done. Volunteer for the rapid response team when ICE threatens a Pasadena neighbor. Learn how to host an event for your religious, political, or social group joined by a representative from the immigrant community. Connect and see where your specific talents and professional skills can work to stop the deportation crisis.

Deportations are happening and it’s not enough for the mayor to speak out, though POP! would like to see 100 mayors from across the country band together to make a national difference quickly. This means putting pressure on OUR mayor and on City Council. Come learn how. We’ll see you March 18, 3 – 5 PM at the Pasadena Community Jobs Center at 500 N. Lake Ave. 91101.
