Hello, my name is _______ and I would like to ask Supervisor __________ to support a fully inclusive implementation of the Due Process for All initiative. Providing legal counsel to all immigrants, especially those in detention, is a basic safeguard that will protect the rights of our immigrant community members and prevent injustices. No one should face imprisonment and exile without a lawyer. I also urge Supervisor ______ to draw a clear line between County resources and federal law enforcement. The county should not in any way be complicit in facilitating the separation of our communities through the deportation machine. Los Angeles County needs to do everything in its power to prevent people from being caught up in this unjust system in the first place.
