Professor Reynoso Publishes TRUST Act Commentary
Professor Emeritus Cruz Reynoso published a commentary on the TRUST Act, California Assembly Bill 1081, in the Sacramento Bee on September 21. Professor Reynoso calls for Governor Jerry Brown to sign the bill, which "will set a reasonable standard for local law enforcement across the state, ensuring people may be held for extra time at immigration authorities' request only if the individual is charged by a district attorney or convicted of a serious or violent felony."
A member of the UC Davis School of Law faculty since 2001, Professor Reynoso is an internationally known civil rights leader, the first Latino to sit on the California Supreme Court, and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor. He has been awarded the UC Davis Medal, the university's highest honor, and the Law School has established the Cruz & Jeannene Reynoso Scholarship for Legal Access to help students with financial needs.
