One day after President Trump visited California to talk about the border wall, California appointed an undocumented immigrant to a student aid advisory committee, the first time in history an undocumented serves on a state post. Also, two farm worker parents were killed in a car crash after fleeing an ICE patrol, leaving six children behind. Also, Democratic congressmembers are calling the House leaders to attach the Dream Act to the omnibus spending bill that is scheduled for a vote this week. And a federal appeals court upheld key provisions of Texas’ draconian SB4 law, while warning about the risk of constitutional violations. And the cities of Denver and Baltimore each created a 200,000 fund to provide legal aid to undocumented residents who face deportation proceedings.
