Earlier this month, the Los Angeles Times reported the arrest of six individuals outside L.A. county jail as they protested immigration and law enforcement policies. One was accused of battery against a firefighter while the others were charged with failing to disperse.
The activists argued that Sherriff Lee Baca’s policies are, “destructive policies that have led to the deportations of thousands each year,” as stated to reporters. They are looking to have Governor Brown sign the Trust Act which would keep local authorities from having to adhere to federal detention requests except in cases where a serious or violent crime had been committed.
Sherriff Lee Baca has stated that he would not comply if the act was to be signed into law as he feels that it would require him to go against federal law which requires local law enforcement to share fingerprint databases with immigration authorities.
As things stand now under the current federal law, or the Secure Communities program, the Sherriff’s department has given immigration officials information on those who have been convicted of crimes and served their time in county jail. Protestors feel that the Sherriff’s deputies have help with the deportation of many with use of something like a minor traffic ticket.
