Battling Trump: San Francisco Supervisor to Seek Funding to Block Deportations

San Francisco Supervisor David Campos plans today to propose spending $5 million to provide legal representation to immigrants in the city living in the country without documentation who face deportation, reports The San Francisco Chronicle.

According to the Chronicle,  Campos is hopeful there will be a vote on the legislation by the Board of Supervisors by Dec. 13, his last scheduled meeting before being termed out of office and less than six weeks before Trump’s inauguration.

Immigration is a complex issue, certainly far beyond the comprehension of Campos, and there is the bigger question as to why exactly SF residents have to pay for legal representation for the undocumented.

That said, it is good to see governments battle.
