Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors Weighs Sanctuary Policies
A few weeks ago, CAPS alerted its Central Coast activists to a protest at the Santa Maria courthouse during the arraignment of two illegal alien criminals who allegedly raped and murdered 64 year-old Air Force veteran Marilyn Pharis while she was sleeping in her home in Santa Maria.  The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors is meeting on Tuesday, September 22 at 9:00 am to discuss sanctuary policies. 

What you can do:
1. Phone calls needed!  If you live in Santa Barbara County, you may receive an automated phone call that will give you talking points and connect you directly with a Board of Supervisor's office.  If you would like to call directly, please see numbers below.

CAPS' Activists on National Stage
Rally at GOP Presidential Debate

CAPS Activists joined hundreds of others demonstrators at the entrance to the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley before the Republican Presidential debate.  Media from around the world asked us about our banners calling for an end to birthright citizenship and for our opinions about candidates’ positions on immigration. Many of us proudly wore CAPS hats.  Thank you to those of you that were able to take part!

Thank you for standing strong with CAPS.
