In Richmond, the bill sponsors are Councilmember and AD 15 candidate Jovanka Beckles and Councilmember Ada Recinos.
This will be the first Deport ICE ordinance in the Bay Area, but more are coming in Alameda, Berkeley and Oakland.
We need to support our elected officials all over the Bay Area in standing up with our immigrant communities to the deportation machine.
