According to Indivisible activists, about 100 to 150 people rallied this morning at a press conference held on the steps of the County Administration Building to protest opposition to the anticipated Supervisor vote on whether to oppose Brown’s sanctuary laws.
After the rally — where a number of people spoke — the crowd went upstairs to the Supervisor’s chambers on the third floor. There were so many people that the spill-over room had to be used.
Indivisible activists from the 49th Congressional District who usually meet outside Rep. Darrell Issa’s office on Tuesdays rented a bus to attend the protest and vote.
According — again — to Indivisible activists, Supervisor chair Kaspar intentionally placed the controversial item at the end of the agenda and their vote on it is not expected for hours. Once the public comments are over — the Supes are expected to excuse themselves and meet privately to vote on the matter. The reason? They consider it a legal matter — subject to a non-public vote. Which is bullshit, according to Indivisible activists.
