Immigration advocacy groups are asking California Attorney General Kamala Harris to “block federal access” to the database containing names of gang members in the state.

The goal is to block access before President-elect Donald Trump is sworn in, thereby preventing his administration from seeing the names of individuals who could find themselves on a the deportation short list.

According to the Voice of OC (VOC), a 2016 report from the California State Auditor claims the CalGang database has problems because of “weak oversight.” This means the database reportedly contains some names that should have been removed and other names that ought not have been added in the first place
