The purpose of this policy analysis was to examine Assembly Bill 4, the Transparency and Responsibility Using State Tools (TRUST) Act of California, signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown on October 5, 2013. The analysis attempted to explore the impact of the TRUST Act as it limits the power of the Secure Communities Program which pertains to unreasonable deportations of many undocumented people all over California for minor offenses.
The analysis begins with a historical and legislative overview of immigration policy in the United States. Following is a comprehensive policy analysis of the Act that was presented using Jillian Jimenez's policy analysis framework enhanced from David Gil's framework. Furthermore, based on the findings of this policy analysis, this researcher determined that the social, political, and economic benefits of the implementation of the TRUST Act would have a positive impact on United States society..
