Thankfully, Trump/Gaspar Lawsuit Defeated


In 2018 Supervisor Kristin Gaspar led the effort to have the County of San Diego join Donald Trump in his lawsuit against State of California protections for immigrants. Today, the Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal on this case and with that action strikes a blow to the Trump/Gaspar approach and validates the State of California protection for immigrants. Below is Supervisor Nathan Fletcher’s statement: 

“Today was a good day for our county, our state and our community. I was proud to see the Supreme Court reject the anti-immigrant efforts of President Donald Trump and Supervisor Kristin Gaspar who sought to abolish California’s protections for immigrants. This is a victory for those who believe immigrants make our community stronger and a defeat for those who use immigration to divide us based on race and hate.”
