U.S. Customs Denies L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer's Request for Access to Secure Areas at LAX; Feuer Appeals Denial

March 31, 2017

Los Angeles—After being denied access in January to secure areas at Los Angeles World Airport where dozens of immigrants were unlawfully detained, City Attorney Mike Feuer applied for a security clearance provided to other law enforcement officials. This week, federal officials denied Feuer’s application. Feuer is appealing the decision.
 

"When the City Attorney of the nation’s second largest city cannot gain access to all areas of the airport located in his jurisdiction, something is terribly wrong," said City Attorney Mike Feuer. "I went to LAX in January because I wanted to secure the release of the detainees. I also wanted very direct answers to basic questions. A security clearance would have provided me with access to the detainees so I could have assessed their situation and well-being."
