민족학교 외 11개 단체, 트럼프의 공적부담 확대안에 위헌 소송 제기

민족학교를 비롯해 전국이민법률센터 등 흑인, 라티노, 이슬람계, 일하는 가정, 농장 노동자들을 대변하는 전국의 12개 이민자 권익 및 민권 단체들은 최근 발표된 트럼프 행정부의 "공적 부담 확대안" 규정이 미국 수정 헌법 5조의 평등보호조항을 위반하는 인종차별적인 요소를 담고 있어 트럼프 대통령, 국토안보부와 이민국을 대상으로 위헌 소송을 8월 16일 제기했습니다. 트럼프의 인종차별적인 언사와 행정부의 인종차별적인 정책, 그리고 공적부담 확대안이 일하는 가정, 유색인종 이민자들에게 더 큰 영향을 끼친다는 것을 인정한 행정부의 행보를 종합해 볼 때 이번 확대안이 인종차별적인 의도를 가지고 추진되었다는 점은 자명합니다.

Proposed LA Rules Affecting Homeless People Will Fail (Invisible People)

Picture this: you’re an unhoused person living in Los Angeles, and you’ve found a spot to bed down for the night. It’s quiet, it’s grassy, you feel somewhat safe there, even if just for the night. Then, a police officer comes to rouse you, waking you up and telling you that you’re in violation of LAMC 41.18(d) because you’re only 450 feet away from a nearby school, and not the 500 feet required by the new law.

Holt lawsuit highlights fight for transparency & adoptee rights (The Korea Herald)

The presiding judge in the Seoul Central District Court opened session Tuesday by noting the unusual audience as the small courtroom overflowed with over 60 South Korean-born international adoptees and adoptee rights advocates. The hearing was the first in a landmark lawsuit filed by deported Korean American adoptee Adam Crapser against the Korean government and Holt Children’s Services. In the US, groups such as Adoptees for Justice, KoRoot and the National Korean American Service & Education Consortium are mobilizing with the aim of passing a law retroactively granting citizenship to all adult international adoptees and allowing deportees like Crapser to return home. 

Trump “Public Charge” Regulation Unlawful, Lawsuit Claims: Nonprofits aim to block policy targeting millions of families of color

SAN FRANCISCO — Nonprofits serving immigrant communities and advocates for racial equity, health, children, farmworkers, and working families today filed suit to block implementation of the Trump administration’s “public charge” regulation, which threatens millions of immigrant families — disproportionally families of color. La Clínica de la Raza et al. v. Trump et al., filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, asks the court to declare the regulation issued by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) unlawful and unconstitutional. DHS finalized the regulation on August 14, 2019. 

In addition to La Clínica de la Raza, the suit was brought by African Communities Together, the California Primary Care Association, the Central American Resource Center, the Council on American Islamic Relations - California, Farmworker Justice, the Korean Resource Center, the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County, and Maternal and Child Health Access. The plaintiffs are represented by the National Immigration Law Center, Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Los Angeles, the National Health Law Program and the Western Center on Law and Poverty.
