3 LA immigration rights groups awarded $1.25M to help CD 9 residents

A $1.25 million Immigration Relief Fund was announced by Councilman Curren Price Wednesday to help people in his district, with the money split between three major immigration rights organizations in Los Angeles.

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights received $500,000, the Central American Resource Center received $500,000 and the Black Alliance for Just Immigration received $250,000.
