Trust Act signed into law

The Governor signed legislation – known as the Trust Act – that will prevent law enforcement officials across the state from detaining individuals based solely on their immigration status.

Opponents, such as Sen. Righter, say Senate Bill 31 might be well-intended, but the legislation goes too far because it prohibits state and local law enforcement, or government officials from cooperating with other government agencies. By prohibiting law enforcement agencies from cooperating with federal immigration law, opponents say this legislation could present potential unknown, long-term public-safety consequences.
