The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision in United States v. California upholds the heart of AB 103, which gives the state attorney general the power and resources to monitor ICE detention. This is a significant victory for transparency and accountability.
California is proving to the rest of the country that independent oversight in ICE detention is not only possible, but it is our responsibility. States must continue fighting the Trump administration’s cruel and unlawful anti-immigrant agenda and protecting immigrant communities.
California can continue leading the way by championing measures that safeguard the civil and human rights of immigrants.
