Kamala formed partnerships to serve the immigrant community. For instance, she partnered with Service Employees International Union and Univision to host forums across the state to provide info about deferred action programs and help protect immigrants from fraud and wage theft.
In Dec 2012 #Kamala issued a bulletin to law enforcement agencies that compliance with an I.C.E. deportation program was not mandatory. Her review showed that 28% of those targeted for deportation in CA as a result of the program were not criminals. #KamalasRecord #KamalaHarris
As AG, #Kamala issued important bulletins and guidance to CA law enforcement agencies. One such example is her Oct 2015 guidance outlining the law enforcement agencies responsibilities to assist immigrant crime victims in applying for U-visas.
