LA, NY, ATLANTA LEAD CITIES AND COUNTIES ACROSS NATION IN SUPREME COURT AMICUS BRIEF ON IMMIGRATION

Updated: Feb 13

LOS ANGELES – An amicus brief led by the office of Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer, the Corporation Counsel of the City of New York, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, and joined by 84 cities and counties across the county (including Los Angeles) was filed today, urging the U.S. Supreme Court to lift a nationwide injunction against implementing a federal immigration enforcement policy proposed by President Obama.

"The President's immigration directives are lawful and fair, providing important opportunities for qualifying immigrants to contribute to their communities," said Feuer. "I'm very proud that cities and counties across our nation are standing together to support a crucial immigration policy that promotes public safety, economic development and family unity."
