Our Game Plan

In late 2017 a core group of Californians came together to file a Referendum to the passage of SB54
(DeLeon), the Sanctuary State Bill passed by both houses of the Legislature and signed very quickly
by Governor Brown. Within weeks this intrepid group soon realized that simply filing a referendum
and qualifying it on SB54 would not solve any of the problems facing The Golden State.
What’s the problem? In the last session of the Legislature, the Democrat supermajority passed two
bills affecting the safety of California children and families, and the previously-passed AB-60 (giving
illegal aliens drivers licenses) and the Motor Voter Act threatened to enable voter fraud on a scale
never before seen.
Per California’s Constitution and Elections Code, a referendum can only be filed within a certain
time period and can only pertain to one bill. Since we faced three separate issues – and knew one
was well outside the referendum eligibility time frame – we decided a statutory ballot proposition
would be the most effective way to deal with the issue of how California’s government should
interact with illegal aliens in the state.

THE BIG THREE

SB 54 “CALIFORNIA VALUES ACT”

State and local law enforcement officers cannot:
Honor immigration holds or make civil immigration arrests.
Ask people questions about immigration status.
Notify ICE of inmate release dates or personal information
Allow ICE to interview inmates
Participate in joint task forces with federal law enforcement

AB 450

California employers cannot voluntarily give federal immigration
authorities access to:
“Non-public” areas of the workplace
Employer-held employee records

Despite the assurances of legislators and “experts,”giving illegal
aliens drivers licenses has not made Californians any safer.The
available evidence shows that the OPPOSITE has happened.

And, we have no faith that the DMV has the proper procedures or
technology in place to prevent illegal aliens from being
automatically registered to vote.

California employers must:
inform ALL employees of a “Notice of Inspection” from federal
officials within 72 hours of receipt.
Not “re-verify” I-9 documentation, even if fraud or forgery is
suspected.

AB 60 + MOTOR VOTER

Despite the assurances of legislators and “experts,”giving illegal
aliens drivers licenses has not made Californians any safer.The
available evidence shows that the OPPOSITE has happened.

automatically registered to vote

OUR GAME PLAN

THE INITIATIVE

In our ballot proposition you’ll see that we’ve addressed the illegal alien issues by codifying what can and
cannot happen in California vis-à-vis illegal aliens and immigration enforcement.

Thus, our proposition repeals the sections of the California Code enacted due to SB 54 and, further,
requires state and local law enforcement to interface and work with federal officials. The initiative adds
criminal penalties for those rogue politicians who might still attempt to declare their jurisdictions a
“sanctuary” from the law.

It also completely repeals those sections of the Labor Code criminalizing a private employer’s cooperation
with federal immigration authorities. It revokes an illegal alien’s ability to obtain a California Driver’s
License or renew the one he/she possesses, putting an end to the State’s ability to automatically register
them to vote.

Three problems; one solution. We’re reminded of this quote by Thomas Jefferson, “In questions of power,
let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the
Constitution.” We’ve done just that.

QUALIFYING FOR THE BALLOT

We’ve drafted the solution to Sanctuary State, but our work is far from over. Now we must qualify our
initiative for the ballot.To do that we will need to present 365,880 valid signatures to the Secretary of State
within 180 days of receiving Title and Summary from the Attorney General’s office, meaning we’ll have to
gather over 500,000 signatures and preferably more!

We know that officials will find every possible reason to disqualify signatures, so we’ve set a goal to collect
700,000 signatures in the 180-day time period.

Impossible number? NO. Daunting? YES. To reach this goal, we plan to use a combination of paid and
volunteer signature gatherers. Though public opinion is firmly against giving criminal illegal aliens
sanctuary, we cannot count on that groundswell to provide us with the massive number of signatures
required statewide. For reference, the last initiative to qualify for the ballot on a strictly volunteer basis was
back in the mid 1960’s.

Based on our talks with the most successful and well-respected professional signature gathering firms in
the state, we’re projecting a cost of $4.50/signature, or $3,150,000 (assuming each signature gathered is a
paid signature). These signatures will be verified and properly caged.

While there will obviously be a crucial volunteer component to our effort, past efforts have demonstrated
that cannot be the sole component. In our experience, “When all is said and done, usually more is said than
done.” Volunteers will be the extra edge we need to qualify, not the basis upon which we qualify.

BY THE NUMBERS

Signatures Needed – 365,880
Signatures Presented (Goal) – 700,000
Time period for signature gathering – 180 days
Cost per signature – $4.50
Total budget for qualification- $4,000,000
