Los Angeles — In response to the Trump administration filing a lawsuit against the State of California over its laws protecting immigrants, Anjuli Kronheim Katz, Southern California Regional Organizer of Bend the Arc Jewish Action, released the following statement:
“California has been a leader in the effort to oppose the Trump administration’s radical, anti-immigrant policies. Now, the administration is seeking to compel our state and local authorities to participate in its racist, destructive agenda of immigrant detentions and deportations.
“The California Jewish community unites in solidarity with the targets of Trump’s dangerous attacks on immigrants. We are committed to resisting and defeating these attempts to make our state a place where immigrants feel threatened and unwelcome.”
