LA County sheriff announces plans to limit cooperation with ICE

One of the hottest topics in last fall's election of a new sheriff for Los Angeles County was the vow of winner Alex Villanueva to limit the department's cooperation with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Trump rule to limit access to asylum seekers blocked by judge

President Trump's continuing effort to use administrative declarations to raise the barriers to lawful admission into the United States hit another roadblock in San Francisco on November 18.
