The Remembrance Project Headed To Sacramento Federal Hearing Opposing Sanctuary State Law

The morning of the hearing, members of The Remembrance Project and We The People Rising will hold a press conference in front of the Robert T. Matsui United States Courthouse in support of the Trump administration’s lawsuit opposing the California Sanctuary State Laws. The federal government’s lawsuit, filed in early March, targets three recent California laws: the Immigrant Worker Protection Act (HB 450), the Inspection and Review of Facilities Housing Federal Detainees law (AB 103); and the Sanctuary State Law (SB 54).

U.S. District Judge John Mendez scheduled a hearing for June 20 on the federal government’s motion for a preliminary injunction blocking three California Sanctuary State laws.

“The Remembrance Project  members will stage in front of the courthouse,” Robin Hvidston, CA State Coordinator for The Remembrance Project, said. “As a visual, in support of the federal lawsuit, we will display the Stolen Lives Quilts, banners that honor American citizens who have been killed by those illegally in this country – permanently separated from their families through no fault of their own. The Stolen Lives Quilt banners will include American citizens who lost their lives in sanctuary cities, such as Sacramento and San Francisco.”

In addition, The Remembrance Project members have been active at the local level.

Organizations such as We The People Rising, LA County for Trump and The Remembrance Project have been involved in the revolt at the local government level in California opposing SB 54, the Sanctuary State Law, which shields criminal aliens from deportation. More then 40 California cities and 13 California counties have signed ordinances opposing SB 54 as well as signing onto an amicus brief in support of the federal lawsuit.

“Our members have attended city council meetings and county board of supervisors meetings in order to speak out in strong opposition to the Sanctuary State Law SB 54, that protects criminal aliens. The Remembrance Project families have spoken out against SB 54, at the local level as well,” Hvidston said. “Now during the federal court proceedings, we will have the opportunity to express support for the Trump administration’s lawsuit, in the name of public safety on behalf of our families, seeking to enforce federal immigration laws.”
