L.A. Schools to Consider Immigration Sanctuary


The ACLU and other activists, along with two Los Angeles Unified School District board members, said Tuesday they would ask the Board of Education to declare school grounds off limits to federal immigration agents and take other actions aimed at shielding immigrant students from enforcement.

A coalition called, "California Schools Are Sanctuaries," or CASAS, said it's trying to get similar policies implemented at school districts all over the state.

According to a statement, the group will ask the District to train school staff on how to respond if ICE agents appear on school grounds, how to refuse to provide immigration officials, "unfettered access to students or their information," and how to create plans to assist students or their family members detained by agents.
