The TRUST Act

On Thursday, July 5, the TRUST Act was approved by the California senate.  The TRUST Act challenges ICE’s dependence on local police officers to detain those who are suspected of being undocumented immigrants for deportation review.  The TRUST Act would ensure that once undocumented immigrants were eligible for release, they will not be detained for an immigrant hold unless the individual committed a serious or violent felony.  The continued detention must not conflict with federal, state, or local law.
