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
organization supports deporting anybody who presents a threat to the community, like killers and kidnappers.
