Federal lawsuit regarding California’s SB 54

On Monday, April 23, 2018 the Yucaipa City Council considered whether or not Yucaipa would join with other cities in California in filing an amicus brief in support of the federal lawsuit against California over SB 54. Yucaipa City Hall was filled to overflowing with people, some local, many not, advocating for joining with the federal lawsuit and with those opposing doing so.

I was the last person to make a public comment, and I chose to draw attention to the larger issues of foreign policy that are seldom addressed in discussions about immigrants and refugees. To hear the recording of the council meeting and my comments, go to: http://www.yucaipa.org/wp-content/uploads/city_council/audio/04232018.mp3 My two minutes start at 1:40.
