LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The first meeting of the Los Angeles City Council’s ad Hoc Committee on Immigrant Affairs will be held Wednesday in an effort to counter the changes in federal policy believed to be coming under President Trump.

Council members said the 6 p.m. meeting is a rare evening event, which aims to encourage the public to express their opinions about Trump and immigration issues.

Trump has taken a number of positions hostile to illegal immigration, including threatening to deport up to 3 million immigrants in the country, advocating for a wall to be built between Mexico and the U.S., and proposing a ban on Muslims entering the country.

Trump has also threatening to cut off federal funding to so-called sanctuary cities.

The agenda for the committee includes both symbolic and substantive motions on immigration, and reports from some key leaders.

    “Trump has also threatening to cut off……” …….where did you get your journalism degree? I guess spell checkers can’t really take the place of a functioning brain.

  2. Please waste your money trying to counter this. Drive your city further into bankruptcy. In the end illegals will leave, on their own, or in handcuffs. E-Verify, will be strongly used, and benefits will be cut to ALL illegals. Regardless of ethnic background. Latino, Asian, Caucasian,,,,ALL.

  3. Illegals….Try going to another country, say China : Leave, even as tourists we don’t like you, your men are like ours, you hit women, your rude, loud, stink. Philippines don’t like you. Germany likes the women only/. I could name more but the bottom line is, “Stay Home” since you love waving your flag outside your country, La Raza isn’t going to help you, its just a raising money machine with foul mouthed speakers for their version of the KKK against Americans. Your users, don’t want to abide just disrupt. There are more illegal alien gang members in this country than in any other country combined and Marco Rubio , Clintons and the rest of you Sanctuary City lovers trying to make citizens out of them to create a constituency base = voters for democrats, fk you. Do it the old fashion way which you cannot, convince the American people and stop importing votes.
