Alameda County moves to protect immigrants in Trump administration’s bullseye

On February 7th, the East Bay Times reported on Alameda County’s decision to allocate $1.5 million to provide legal and other services for immigrants, funded in part by a $750,000 grant from The San Francisco Foundation. “I think we have a moral as well as a practical obligation to protect our immigrant citizens; this is just a start,” said Alameda County Board of Supervisors President Wilma Chan. “We will continue to resist,” she added. “This isn’t going to go away in a year. The issues for immigrants are going to go and on for the next couple of years.”
