INTEL REPORT—I am the author of a resolution by the Los Angeles City Council to oppose the administration's proposed rule change.
The Department of Homeland Security's proposed rule would have a devastating impact on the well-being of children and families in Los Angeles by punishing immigrants for providing food to their families, and who lawfully receive other public services.
It will also dissuade immigrants to file legal paperwork, because their permanent residency will be on the line.
This is why yesterday I was proud to introduce this resolution.
