PETITION TO HUMBOLDT COUNTY'S BOARD OF SUPERVISORS, CITY COUNCILS, AND THE HUMBOLDT COUNTY SHERIFF

We, the undersigned, do hereby petition all law enforcement agencies and governing bodies of Humboldt County to cease collaboration with Federal Immigration Officers in all local law enforcement matters unless explicitly required by law, including but not limited to not sharing jail release dates, not sharing personal information, and not using ICE agents (or other immigration officials) as interpreters.

Furthermore, we implore local law enforcement to diversify their forces to ensure that Spanish speaking officers, as well as officers of color, are represented on all departments and task forces.

We also petition our local representatives to fully support California SB 54, which would repeal existing Section 11369 of the Health and Safety Code, which provides that when there is reason to believe that a person arrested for a violation of specified controlled substance provisions may not be a citizen of the United States, the arresting agency shall notify the appropriate agency of the United States having charge of deportation matters.

Signed,

    No Humboldt County Sheriffs nor any other local law enforcement officers should be allowed to participate in ICE enforcement activities. Our local LEOs should protect our neighbors and community members whose only transgression is being undocumented in favor of seeking a better life for themselves and their families. The vast majority of the 11 Million undocumented residents of the US are moral, ethical, law-abiding, hard-working, tax-paying contributing members of our society. These residents who have such strong and upright characters deserve our respect, not to be tossed away like chaff, with utter disregard. Not on our watch!

    It is important to step forward to protect our local immigrants. They bring much to this county and in many cases do the hard work no one else wants to do. My organization Locally Delicious, Inc., is partnering with HSU to bring together students of color with families in our communities to make them feel welcome and a part of us. Many of them are scared and worried and have no one to turn to. These students are our future, working hard to get educated and to give back to our communities. They need our community support. All of us in our family history came from somewhere else. It’s time to open our arms to those who want to succeed and come here for that purpose.
