Statement From California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman on SB 54 Sanctuary State Agreement


Los Angeles
 – California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement in reaction to the announcement that Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de Leon and Governor Jerry Brown have reached agreement on final language for SB 54, Senator de Leon’s legislation to make California a Sanctuary State:

“From the moment Donald Trump won the White House, California Democrats have been tirelessly working to protect and shield undocumented Californians from the federal Government. One of the cornerstones of that effort is SB 54 by Senator Kevin de Leon, and California Democrats are deeply grateful that he and Governor Brown have reached agreement on final language that ensures California’s law enforcement agencies are not used as instruments of federal immigration enforcement. Californians welcome our undocumented brothers and sisters, and the use of California’s peace officers against our own brothers and sisters would have been unconscionable and dangerously corrosive to the trust law enforcement needs from the community to keep Californians safe. This is a powerful message of inclusion and reassurance to Undocumented Californians, and I urge the Legislature to approve this bill as swiftly as possible.”

WATCH: Update from the road


The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.


Have you watched John’s video yet?

John released a short video rundown of his last three months on the road — and I wanted to make sure you didn’t miss your chance to watch it!

Watch the video now — then chip in to help John keep the journey going:

John’s been doing things a little differently in this campaign, just like California’s been taking been taking a different road from the folks in Washington.

While some candidates wait for voters to come to them, John is filling the gas tank and hitting the road to make connections with the people who are making our state better and stronger.

But as John’s finance director, I need to make sure we have the resources to keep the camper rolling — and to keep this campaign running the right way.

Will you watch John’s video now and then chip in to keep the engine of this campaign running strong?

Thanks for helping to make this journey possible,

Lisa Cassinis
Finance Director
John Chiang for Governor
