On Monday I, along with 29 other state legislators, urged our Governor to rescind his agreement with DHS and tell Sec. Nielsen that California will not be a part of the immoral and inhumane treatment of women and children. It's time to recall the National Guard.

Don't be fooled by the President's sloppy executive order: Despite ending their inhumane policy of separating children from their parents at the border, the Trump Administration continues to pursue a zero-tolerance immigration policy and is now threatening to incarcerate tens of thousands of immigrants, including children, at internment camps across the country. Two of those camps have been proposed at California military bases.

Now, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is pushing the courts to allow indefinite incarceration of children with their parents. And as I write, 400 California National Guard members remain deployed, assisting the Department of Homeland Security in their mission to secure the border.

Instead of focusing on serious drug cartel and human trafficking cases at the border, the Trump Administration is using the California National Guard to free up federal resources so they can imprison women and children fleeing violence. That's unacceptable: No state resource, especially one devoted to protecting our civic union, should participate in the destruction of familial ones. View the Letter to Governor Brown

Yours in solidarity,

Senator Kevin de León
