Concerns About Immigrant Security in LA
With a new federal administration entering office in January 2017, our country faces many questions in the coming months. One of the questions that is particularly critical to Los Angelenos is immigration.
Los Angeles has many immigrants from Mexico, Central America, Asia, the Mideast, North Africa, and beyond. At this point, no one has an answer about how undocumented people will be treated after President Obama leaves Washington DC, but there are resources to turn to for help, for support, and for practical guidance.
The list below offers some options for us, our friends, families, and neighbors during the days ahead. So if you need assistance or know someone who does, please consult the resources below.
