Alameda County leaders rally for immigrant rights

On February 6th, the East Bay Times reported on nearly two dozen elected leaders, nonprofit organizations, immigrant advocacy groups, and religious leaders, who are backing an Alameda County measure to set aside $750,000 in funds to match a grant from The San Francisco Foundation to defend and protect immigrants and refugees in Alameda County. The proposed measure dates back to December, when county supervisors voted to create a committee on immigrant rights dedicated to “work on ways in which Alameda County can support its immigrant and refugee communities.”
