LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer today announced that the City of Los Angeles, in partnership with L.A. County, is leading 105 cities and counties in an amicus brief at SCOTUS in support of DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. While roughly 13% of DACA recipients, known as the Dreamers, live in L.A., the 105 cities and counties are from 30 different states and represent a wide spectrum of economic, political and cultural perspectives. The lawsuit, Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California, was filed in 2017 in response to the Trump administration's rescission of the program.
"I stand with dreamers," said Feuer. "This strong nationwide coalition stands with them, too. DACA recipients exemplify core American values of hard work, education and belief in a better tomorrow. That’s why we’re united in fighting the Administration’s unlawful, immoral attempt to rescind DACA’s protections."
