Los Angeles Approves $10M Funding for Children Separated from Parents at US-Mexico Border

Los Angeles Allocates $10 Million for Legal Aid to Help Migrant Children Separated from their Parents

The LA Justice Fund was founded in 2017 by the Los Angeles City Council and the LA County Board of Supervisors in response to the election of President Donald Trump and in anticipation of an immigration crack-down by the federal government. On Tuesday, July 3, 2018, the city announced it had approved the use of a $10 million endowment to expand the LA Justice Fund and provide legal aid for children who had been separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti explains the massive allocation of funds by saying, “[N]o child should endure the trauma of being separated from their parents or the terror of not knowing if they will ever see their families again…. Los Angeles is answering cruelty with compassion – by giving hope and assistance to people in desperate need.” Garcetti went on to add that, “[W]e should do everything possible to reunify these families now.”

The Trump Administration has issued an executive order calling for immigration officials to cease the separation of families at the border, but many children remain detained while their parents navigate immigration and criminal courts.
