SLNC Supports Free Legal Assistance for Immigrants Facing Deportation

The Governing Board of the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council has submitted a Community Impact Statement (CIS) to the Los Angeles City Council in support of CD13 Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell’s recent motion to develop recommendations and strategies that would provide free legal assistance to immigrants who may face deportation. The SLNC statement noted that, “Our Silver Lake community has long been a vanguard of tolerance, inclusivity, diversity, and compassion… We need to stand by our immigrant community, provide assistance, and help move people forward to become more successful and better members of our populace.”
