Supervisors to Back Appeal of Immigration Decision

By City News Service

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to sign on to an amicus brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to review the decision blocking President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration.

If the U.S. Supreme Court agrees to review Texas v. United States, county counsel has been directed to join Los Angeles, New York and other jurisdictions and organizations who have added their names to the amicus brief, which seeks to reverse the Fifth Circuit’s decision.

“It is important for Los Angeles County to voice its support because immigrant integration is about laying the foundation for equality and justice,” said Supervisor Hilda Solis, who introduced the motion.
