Watsonville City Hall
250 Main Street
Santa Cruz to Watsonville from Highway 1 North: Exit at Highway 129, turn left on Main Street.
The MigraWatch Network calls for supporters of immigrant rights to come to the Watsonville City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 8 at 6:00pm, to ask that the City Council pass a resolution which will direct the Watsonville police to notify a human rights group when Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is present. It has been reported that when ICE comes into a community, they notify the local police department beforehand. Even in cities that have non-cooperation policies, like Watsonville and Santa Cruz, ICE is able to carry out their agenda without the aid of local law enforcement as evident in the raids in Santa Cruz County last fall.
