Proposition 187

1994

A rise in anti-immigrant sentiment spurs the passage of Proposition 187, which denies all public services to undocumented immigrants. APALC works in coalition to oppose Prop 187, which passes, and also plays a supportive role in Gregorio T. v. Wilson, the constitutional challenge to Prop 187, which results in the federal courts invalidating Prop 187 as an improper exercise of state power over immigration.
