Comment: Cities Will Protect Their Communities
Immigrants are integral part of the communities of all major US cities. Draconian deportation actions by incoming administration will disrupt the communities. Los Angeles launched a $10 million legal defense fund for immigrants facing deportation, officials announced on Monday. Tucson City Council passed an immigration rights resolution. Mayors of 17 major cities wrote a letter to President-elect Trump urging him to continue DACA, this included mayors of New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Houston, Boston, Seattle, Baltimore, Long Beach, Denver, Minneapolis, San Jose, St. Louis, Phoenix, Nashville and Providence. A vast majority of civic leaders understand the grave danger posed by Trump's deportation plans to their communities, and we commend them for acting forcefully to protect and preserve their communities.
