Resolution Denouncing the Deportation of Vietnamese Immigrants.


As recommended by the Rules and Open Government Committee on March 6, 2019:

(b) Acknowledge the rights of refugees and asylum seekers to pursue sanctuary and avoid the endangerment that may accompany a forced return to their country of origin;

(c) Direct the City Attorney’s Office to support any and all legal actions against the Trump administration in its attempt to deport Vietnamese Americans, including the filing of an amicus brief in the litigation filed by Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Atlanta.
