Turning the Golden State into a Sanctuary State: Report on the Impact and Implementation of the California Values Act (SB 54) in California
In a recently issued report, Advancing Justice - Asian Law Caucus found that California's sanctuary state law, the California Values Act, has been effective in limiting deportations of immigrants. This finding is just one of many in the first ever detailed report evaluating the impact of the California "sanctuary" law, which went into effect in January 2018.
Titled "Turning the Golden State into a Sanctuary State: Report on the Impact and Implementation of the California Values Act (SB 54) in California" and developed in partnership with the University of Oxford Centre for Criminology, Border Criminologies, and the ICE Out of CA coalition, the report looks at what has happened since then-Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 54 into law in October 2017. It also makes a series of recommendations to fulfill the goals of SB 54.
