California Education Leaders to President Trump:
We Will Protect Immigrant Students from Discrimination and Attack
Local School Districts Support Challenge to Arbitrary 'Sanctuary Jurisdictions' Executive Order
WHAT: Representatives from the San Diego Unified School District, Sweetwater Union High School District, San Diego Community College District, and Southwestern Community College will hold a press conference to announce their signing of an amicus brief on behalf of schools and educators supporting Santa Clara County's challenge to President Trump's executive order targeting sanctuary jurisdictions. The school districts will also assert their commitment to protect their student's civil rights, regardless of immigration status.
As President Trump threatens to retaliate against certain jurisdictions who refuse to coordinate with federal law enforcement to identify, surveil, detain and deport undocumented immigrants, education leaders across California have come together to send a strong message: Leave our students and their families alone.

Sylvia Torres-Guillen, Director of Education Equity for ACLU of California
WHEN: Wednesday, March 22, 2017 11:30 a.m.
