San Dimas City Council to take up SB-54 at April 24th public meeting

While San Dimas Mayor Curt Morris and Dennis Bertone don’t believe that “a brief opposing Senate Bill 54” should be taken up, Councilman Ryan Vienna, a Lieutenant with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, “personally signed a brief opposing Senate Bill 54” and – has been pushing the council to do the same (resulting in another public meeting on the issue on April 24th).  Other cities, such as San Gabriel and Santa Ana have approved “safe cities” resolutions “affirming the city’s commitment to its immigrant population.”  The city council in Pomona, in putting this affirmation into action, went as far as to pass an ordinance that includes “the development and implementation of training materials for city personnel as they pertain to the requirements of SB 54.”
