SACRAMENTO, CA – The California Senate today passed Assembly Bill 4 (Ammiano), the TRUST Act (Transparency and Responsibility Using State Tools), on a 25-11 vote. The bill, in the works for three years, now heads back to the Assembly for a concurrence vote. The TRUST Act will end the abuses under the federal government’s Secure Communities (S-Comm) program. Under the program, local law enforcement has used local resources to hold people – many of whom are never charged with a crime – for federal immigration purposes.
