California Immigration-Enforcement Initiative Filed

NumbersUSA has not endorsed this initiative, but is forwarding information to California members who may be interested.

Dear California activist,

The organization Taxpayer Revolution is seeking signatures to place the “Protection From Transnational Gangs Act of 2012” on the November ballot in California. If passed by the voters, the initiative would:

Require full cooperation with the federal Secure Communities program, which verifies lawful status of all booked into jail;

Require illegal aliens with immigration detainers to be transferred to federal authorities;

Authorize federal 287(g) program training and allows law enforcement officers to perform certain immigration enforcement functions, including verification of immigration status;

Prohibit illegal alien sanctuary policies; and

Require the verification of information submitted in driver’s license/ID applications and makes licenses/IDs expire when a temporary visa expires.

When there are sufficient volunteers, proponents will seek the signatures of 504,760 registered California voters in order to qualify the measure for the ballot. A higher number is needed because some signatures are typically ruled invalid.

An activist's organizational meeting will be held on Saturday, April 21st, 3-5 p.m. in the California Room of the Hacienda Hotel, which is located at 525 N. Sepulveda Blvd., El Segundo (one mile south of Los Angeles International Airport). The meeting is co-hosted by Ted Hilton, Taxpayer Revolution Committee, and Mike Alexander, President of Tea PAC. Mike has a list of 5,000 signature volunteers. The petition drive will begin when there are enough committed volunteers.
