Conservative Activists Want to Overturn California’s ‘Sanctuary State’ Law Through a 2018 Ballot Measure

Marco Gutierrez, the founder of Latinos for Trump, gained overnight notoriety during the 2016 presidential campaign when he warned against the spread of his culture.

“If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner,” he said on national television.


Gutierrez and a handful of conservative activists from Fresno filed a referendum to allow voters to block the implementation of California’s landmark “sanctuary state” law. Supporters would have to collect 365,880 voter signatures by early January to qualify the measure.


The law, signed earlier this month by Gov. Jerry Brown, will limit law enforcement agencies from questioning and detaining people for immigration violations.
