LOS ANGELES COUNTY — In a motion to the Board of Supervisors, Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich announced his support for the immigration reform package proposed by a bi-partisan group of United States Senators, and asked that the board direct the county’s federal advocates to support this legislation by sending a five-signature letter to the County’s Congressional Delegation in support of the Senate’s proposal.

“This legislation is a comprehensive approach to immigration reform which includes a guest worker program, greater border security, and enhanced coordination of federal and local law enforcement,” said Antonovich. 

The motion also asked that the proposal include a trained reserve component patterned after law enforcement programs and requests that federal advocates and the CEO’s office report back to the Board monthly on the progress of Immigration Reform legislation and discussion.
