Moving across multiple fronts, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted today to intensify its support for immigrants in the face of federal efforts to roll back protections on vulnerable populations, including young “dreamers” studying and working under the DACA program.

The supervisors, acting on a motion by Supervisors Hilda L. Solis and Sheila Kuehl, voted unanimously to make immigration one of the county’s key priorities.

It joins other major issues such as homelessness, child protection, healthcare, justice reform and environmental oversight at the top of the action list for the local government serving the nation’s most populous county.

“As the rhetoric and negative action directed toward immigrants increases at the federal level, the county must become increasingly attentive to the crisis impacting more than one million of our residents,” the motion said. Identifying immigration as a priority will make sure the county’s cross-departmental focus on legislation, litigation, resources and services “remains concentrated and consistent.”

Supervisors also voted in favor of a motion by Board Chair Mark Ridley-Thomas to support litigation filed by the state of California and/or other states challenging federal government actions to rescind DACA.

That vote was 4-1, with Fifth District Supervisor Kathryn Barger opposed.

In addition, the board approved a motion by Supervisors Solis and Janice Hahn to impose a one-year restriction on most official county travel to nine states that threatened legal action to permanently end DACA, formally known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

Supervisor Barger voted against this motion, with Supervisor Ridley-Thomas abstaining.

Supervisors unanimously directed the county’s Office of Immigrant Affairs to continue its outreach and support for DACA recipients, and to work with the County Counsel to explore immigration relief and residency options for county employees in the DACA program, which the Trump Administration said it will terminate in six months.

The economic and human stakes are high, the motion said.

“Ending DACA and admonishing recipients from the labor force could cost the United States $460.3 billion in GDP and decrease Social Security and Medicare contributions by $24.6 billion over the next decade,” according to the motion.

“Every state in the U.S. will feel the economic harms from ending DACA. Los Angeles County, a virtual state in its own right, is especially susceptible to these economic harms and the human costs associated with them…Action by Congress in the next six months is critical to the future of this nation’s DACA recipients and the people of Los Angeles County,” the motion said.

  1. Hopefully legal immigrants

  2. What do you do for the rest of us???

  3. Why are they smiling?

  4. Takes steps to support new voters, while selling Americans down the river. There, fixed it.

  5. Sally Mehr Sally Mehr says:

    You are all crazy…stop…enough

  6. Dean Wise Dean Wise says:

    If the LA County Board of Supervisors, want to help immigrants then help them come here legally make the process easier but they should not help them in their illegal activities it is not fair to the rest of us the comply with laws of the United States of America

  7. Help legals instead….SCVTV Santa Clarita seems to have become a news source heavily biased toward progressive agendas. Time to unlike and unfollow.

  8. Vote these liberals out of office.

  9. Because the county has no other problems and taxpayers all want their dollars spent this way?

  10. SCV & it’s left leaning politics is your problem now, after 30 years in SCV and 58 total in California, we just left. Killing me to see where my tax dollars goes, Haters, you can flip for the bill now.

  11. Left & media never specifies legal vs illegal. Their wordplay shows that they know they lose the debate if they play it straight

  12. Sally Taylor Sally Taylor says:

    Why don’t they put this much effort for our homeless, and our Veterans.

  13. Lyn O Lyn O'Kane says:

    Total idiots, remember to vote and get them out

  14. If they are here legally…if not why are you supporting them instead of our own homeless peeps and the vets…

  15. More idiots in office
