SACRAMENTO -- Immigrant activists met with members of Gov. Jerry Brown's office on Wednesday as they continued pushing for legislation aimed at reducing deportations.
One of the activists said the meeting went well, but the staff members would not pledge Brown's support for the current version of the legislation, known as the Trust Act.
Neidi Dominguez of the California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance said she still wants to sit down with Brown directly.
“He needs to meet with the people affected," she said. "That’s a very logical step.”
A spokesman for Brown, Evan Westrup, declined to comment on the governor’s feelings about the bill.
Activists already held a sit-in at the governor's office earlier this month.
The bill (AB 4) would limit local law enforcement from working with federal authorities to detain immigrants who are in the country illegally unless they commit certain crimes.
Since Brown vetoed the bill last year, it's been revised to expand the number of situations where local law enforcement could trigger deportation proceedings.
The bill is on the Senate's agenda for Thursday but it may not come up for a vote.
