A community meeting to organize a plan in response to President-elect Donald Trump’s agenda is set to take place Saturday in Boyle Heights. A flyer for the “Eastside Emergency Call to Action” at Salesian High School says the meeting is meant to “give direction and directive to city and state elected officials.”
Some groups have already alerted that Trump will be in the White House but he cannot undo local or state laws that already provides benefits to immigrants such as California’s AB 60, which allows undocumented immigrants to get a driver’s license.
Community groups across the state have reportedly been meeting to strategize in response to Trump’s presidency. The President-elect campaigned on the promise of deporting undocumented immigrants and building a wall between the United States and Mexico. Advocates for immigrants say the best thing people can do now is familiarize themselves with their rights.
The Eastside Emergency Call to Action happens Saturday, Dec. 3rd 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at Salesian High School, 960 South Soto Street.
