Immigrant Rights and Integration

When Santa Maria faced a decision on whether to construct a federal immigrant detention center, there was a historic grassroots opposition movement from the city's immigrant community. Thousands of community members turned out to city council and planning commission meetings to oppose the ICE facility, astonishing city officials and news media.
This year CAUSE is working to implement two California state laws signed in 2013 that mean huge changes in the lives of local immigrant families: AB60 and the TRUST Act.
In 2016, we will be working to support the roll out of two new major immigrants’ rights policies: President Obama’s executive order providing deportation relief to approximately 5 million undocumented parents of US citizen children and California’s new law called Health for All, which allows undocumented children access to MediCal.
Under the Trump administration, immigrant communities are in a state of terror over the promise of mass deportations by the federal government and hostility and hate-crimes in the streets and in schools and workplaces. More than ever, these times call for a movement to resist anti-immigrant attacks and defend the rights and dignity of our community.
