Scrivner explains county’s opposition to SB 54

After passing a resolution that casts Kern County’s Board of Supervisors in opposition to a Senate Bill that could grant statewide sanctuary status to illegal immigrants, Board of Supervisors Chairman Zack Scrivner said he will go to Sacramento to discuss possible changes to the bill that would strengthen a list of felonies that would compel local and state law enforcement officers to work with federal law enforcement officials.

During an appearance on the May 10 edition of “The Ralph Bailey Show,” Scrivner said he hopes to convince the bill’s author Kevin De Leon to make changes to the controversial Senate Bill 54, which has passed the Senate, but has yet to gain approval in the state Assembly.

“We are going to sit down and see if we can effect some meaningful change to the bill,” said Scrivener, who added he believes SB 54 is a bad bill.

The county’s official opposition to SB 54 came after Sheriff Donny Youngblood encouraged the county to draft a resolution to make the county a “law and order county.” While the supervisors rejected that measure, they did vote 4-1 earlier this week to opposed the Senate Bill. Supervisor Leticia Perez voted against the resolution.
