Stone outraged at Department of Homeland Security’s Actions

Thursday, February 23, 2017

“I am outraged after listening to the City of Santa Cruz’s press conference regarding the February 13th arrests. I am shocked and appalled that the Department of Homeland Security would so boldly violate the trust of our police department and community. The Department took advantage of a six- year criminal investigation and turned it into an immigration raid,” said Assemblymember Mark Stone. “This action undermines the trust relationship that has been built up with our public safety officials and creates a tremendous amount of fear that loved ones, neighbors and friends could simply be whisked away in the dead of night without warning and without cause. Not in Santa Cruz.”
