While our current Attorney General was scheduled to speak at the law enforcement gathering where Attorney General Sessions announced his law suit against California, I was proud to be the only statewide law enforcement leader outside on the street with hundreds protesting AG Sessions.
We sent a clear message to Attorney General Sessions and President Trump.
California will not be bullied. We will defend our laws and our law abiding immigrant communities. We wont cooperate in the deportation of our neighbors, our co-workers, our classmates, or the parents of our childrens’ friends or their children.
As Insurance Commissioner, I lead a law enforcement agency. I have directed my law enforcement officers that we will not cooperate with ICE, consistent with the sanctuary state law SB 54. We wont be stopped by Attorney General Sessions lawsuit.
I was proud to stand with defenders of immigrants rights to support SB 54. As California’s next Attorney General, I will do everything in my power and in the law to defend California from the Trump Administration.
If you have not already done so, I hope you will join our campaign to elect a fighter, not a follower, to the office of Attorney General.
California Insurance Commissioner and Candidate for Attorney General
