PROTECT UNDOCUMENTED CALIFORNIANS: STOP AB 1416

A horrific proposed bill, AB1416, would prevent Californians from being able to stop the sale of our personal information if the company is selling the information to the government. 

Any agency of the government. Including ICE.

One of the biggest supporters of the bill is Thomson Reuters, the huge Canadian-based multinational corporation with long-term contracts to sell personally identifying information culled from public and private records to ICE.

A sole source contract issued to Thomson Reuters in 2018 from ICE says: "ICE relies on continuous access to commercial database aggregators. Information from Thomson Reuters helps to leverage emerging technology to ensure that ICE can continue to expand its information database coverage nationwide in a cost-effective manner."

California's CCPA would let Californians send an opt-out request to Thomson Reuters instructing them not to sell their information - to ICE or to anyone else. 

AB 1416 wants to take that right away.

The bill could hit the floor as soon as Wednesday

Write to the Northern California delegation in the Assembly right now and tell them to stop Assembly Bill 1416 in its tracks.
