The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to sue the Trump administration over its handling of asylum-seekers.
The chair of the board released a brief statement regarding the vote taken in closed session.
“The Trump administration created this crisis by releasing asylum-seeking families into our community without providing critical resources or even places to shelter,” said Supervisor Dianne Jacob. “The federal government has failed to consider the impact of its own actions on public health and safety, and the lawsuit is an effort to hold the feds accountable.”
