The fight to stop the Sanctuary State heads to the Senate Floor
Senate Bill 54 passed the Appropriations Committee hearing last week with a 5-2 vote, and despite amendmends, it continues to shield deportable rapist and child molesters serving as felons in our prisons.
Last week the San Diego Union Tribune published my op-ed titled ‘Sanctuary state bill protects felons from being deported’ and the East County Californian did a story on my efforts to stop the bill.
California Political News and Views published my interview with them in an article on their website. I also returned to the KFI AM 640 John and Ken show to give an update on where the bill stands. Since it passed the Senate Appropriations Committee, it will now move onto the Senate floor where it will be voted on.
Thank you for all of your hard work in helping me oppose SB 54 and for continuing to sign and share my petition.
It’s my continued honor to serve you,
Senator, District 38
