FRESNO, California (KSEE) – Fresno City Council has voted to join dozens of other cities to collectively support the thousands of DACA recipients in their battle against the U.S. Supreme court.
The amicus brief was started by the City of Los Angeles along with the County of Los Angeles and councilmembers in support of the move say participating in it will not cost the City of Fresno.
The 5-1 vote on Thursday was welcomed by Mi Familia Vota. California state director Samuel Molina said he is proud to see the council move in this direction.
“In 2015, the City of Fresno signed a resolution unanimously supporting DACA and in 2017, one of the first Dream Centers for students K-12 was established right here in the city of Fresno.
“We must continue to do more as a city and as a community to stand up for the rights of the others that are all too often under attack.”
