CITY ATTORNEY MIKE FEUER STATEMENT ON THE FLORES SETTLEMENT

Updated: Mar 5

"We'll keep fighting President Trump's unlawful attempt to flout court-mandated safeguards for immigrant children in federal custody. The President's new rule would toss aside critical protections for kids, consigning immigrant children to indefinite detention for which the Administration can offer no lawful justification. Los Angeles has taken the lead in providing key support for the plaintiff children in the Flores case (pending here in LA), with my office filing two amicus briefs within the last 14 months. We'll continue to strongly support the rights of immigrant children and their extended family members, many of whom call our city home."
