A huge "Thank You" to Chief's Lansdowne and Bejarno!
The Trust Act will go far to protect immigrant families and make our communities safer for us all.
So many families have been torn apart under the Secure Communities program -- even families where a spouse or children are American citizens. This has led to an atmosphere of mistrust of law enforcement and a fear that cooperating on solving legitimate crimes could bring unwanted attention to family members who are undocumented.
Above and beyond the compassion the Trust Act shows toward immigrant families, it makes us all more secure.
Again, many thanks to the Chiefs.
