Organizations Will Rally to Demand That the Board of Supervisors to Vote ‘No’ on Proposal to Join Trump Lawsuit Against California

SAN DIEGO – Organizations from throughout San Diego will rally outside the County Administration Center on Tuesday calling on the County Board of Supervisors to vote against joining the Trump administration’s lawsuit against the State of California.

On March 6, 2018, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions filed a lawsuit targeting the landmark California Values Act (SB 54) and two additional laws that seek to protect the state’s immigrant and refugee communities from mass detention and deportation.

Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Kristin Gaspar, who is running for Congress, proposes to have San Diego County join the Trump administration’s lawsuit.

The lawsuit is an affront to California values of fairness, inclusion and compassion. It is also a baseless assault on the state’s economy, public safety and worker rights.

WHAT:
Organizations will rally to oppose Board Chairwoman Gaspar’s proposal to join the Trump administration’s lawsuit

WHEN:
Tuesday, April 17, 2018, 8:00 to 10:00 am

WHERE:
San Diego County Administration Center, Waterfront Park
1600 Pacific Hwy
San Diego, CA 92101

WHO:
Invest in San Diego Families
San Diego Organizing Project
ACLU of San Diego and Imperial Counties
North County Immigration Task Force
SEIU 221
San Diego Border Dreamers
