It is a good idea to separate different branches that deal with immigration issues, said Emilio Amaya, executive director of San Bernardino Community Service Center, a non-profit that provides immigration services to Riverside and San Bernardino county residents.
Its really a perception issue. People were reluctant to give out personal information at a facility that shared spaces with the enforcement arm, he said.
While Amaya liked the appearance of independence signaled by the new location and that it had plenty of free parking, he noted that it is isolated from public transportation a problem for those without access to vehicles.
But overall, this agency has really improved in the last 25 years. There has been tremendous improvement in their service to the community, Amaya said.

Were happy with the decision, said Emilio Amaya, a member of the Justice for Immigrants Coalition in San Bernardino and executive director for the San Bernardino Community Service Center, which provides free legal aide and other assistance to immigrants.
Amaya said Friday the actions of the Sheriffs Department have helped bridge a gap between local law enforcement and the community.
Our community no longer fears law enforcement, Amaya said. In the past, people wouldnt call police out of fear they would be arrested. Not anymore.

Emilio Amaya, director of San Bernardino Community Service Center Inc. called Rincons incarceration a violation of the Trust Act, which prohibits local authorities from holding those with questionable immigration status longer than necessary to transfer them to federal immigration officials, unless they are suspected of committing serious or violent crimes.
We are here today to ask the Sheriffs Department to follow the law and the Trust Act, Amaya said, later adding, They shouldnt be using resources to target people who are a low priority.
Straying from the message of not one more deportation presented by other pro-immigration reform groups at the protest, Amaya said his organization supports deporting anybody who presents a threat to the community, like killers and kidnappers.

Emilio Amaya, executive director of San Bernardino Community Service Center, an immigrant-assistance agency, said the new law is common sense.
"We strongly believe this is not an immigration issue, it's a safety issue," Amaya said.
Immigrant-rights activists opposed the notation but, said Amaya, "the benefits outweigh the concerns."

Even though Latinos are now a majority of San Bernardino County's residents, a much smaller proportion of the elected officials throughout the county are Latino, said Emilio Amaya, executive director of the San Bernardino Community Service Center, an immigrant-assistance group.
In some parts of the Inland area, that has led to a lack of attention to the needs of Latinos, especially Spanish-speaking residents who in some cities have trouble accessing many government services because of a lack of Spanish-language materials, Amaya said
"For us, this is an opportunity and a challenge," he said.
