The Truth Act creates increased transparency and due process in the ways that local law enforcement cooperate and function with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The bill would require the local legislative body to hold a community forum annually if local law enforcement allows ICE access to any individual.


This bill would continue the success from AB 241 (2013), which granted overtime protections to California's privately hired domestic workers. This bill would remove the sunset provision and make the law's provisions permanent.
