VIDEO: ICE Monster Needs To Go; TRUST Act is the right choice for California!

In California, the State Legislature, and more importantly, the people, have spoken: we need to stop ICE from separating our families in California. The answer is simple: AB 04, the TRUST Act, must be signed by Governor Jerry Brown. The “ICE Monster” has deported hundreds of thousands in California since President Obama took office and over 1.5 million (and counting) immigrants have been deported. Some of them were deported for simply selling fruit on the street – we are better than that as a society!

Watch the video to see what exactly is happening in California and what the TRUST Act can help prevent if signed!

Short bio on Victor Narro:

Currently a project director for the UCLA Labor Center, Victor has been involved with immigrant rights and labor issues for many years. At the UCLA Downtown Labor Center, Victor Narro’s focus is to provide leadership programs for Los Angeles’s immigrant workers and internship opportunities for UCLA students. He is also a lecturer for the Chicano/a Studies Department, where he teaches classes that focus on immigrant workers and the labor movement. Over the past few years, he has worked with janitors, hotel workers, laundry workers, sanitation workers, port truckers, and more recently, car wash workers.

Victor was formerly the co-executive director of Sweatshop Watch. Prior to that, he was the workers’ rights project director for the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA), where he was involved with organizing day laborers, domestic workers, garment workers, and gardeners. His work in multi-ethnic organizing led to the creation of the Multi-ethnic Immigrant Workers Organizing Network (MIWON) in collaboration with KIWA, Garment Worker Center, and Pilipino Worker Center. Through Victor’s leadership, the day laborer project was able to grow into the National Day Laborer Organizing Network that today includes forty community-based worker centers from around the country. Before his tenure at CHIRLA, Victor worked in the Los Angeles regional office of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF).
