Statement by Los Angeles Labor Leader Rusty Hicks on Trump Administration Attacking California’s Sanctuary Laws

Los Angeles, CA – The following statement was issued by Rusty Hicks, President of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, following tonight’s announcement by the Trump administration to file a suit against California’s sanctuary laws:

“The irony! For decades, Donald Trump has used the courts as a financial sanctuary for his bankrupt businesses.

“Now, he wants to use the courts against California for daring to protect innocent people from his wanton abuse of power.

“The Los Angeles County Federation of Labor welcomes the chance to join in the defense of our rights as Californians.”
