This anti-immigrant bill was sidelined by the novel coronavirus pandemic. Lawmakers will make bills like this a priority for the next legislative session.

We oppose Senate Bill 1, the Family Separation Bill, and any legislation that could lead to family separation, unconstitutional detentions of foreign-born Kentuckians, racial and ethnic profiling, and weakened trust between local law enforcement and the communities they serve.
