Bexar County is moving a plan forward to provide legal representation to immigrants unable to afford it, despite the reservations of the lone Republican on Commissioners Court.
In a 3-1 vote Tuesday, commissioners agreed to seek proposals from nonprofits to provide legal services to indigenous immigrants in detention, facing deportation or at the risk of losing their immigration status. The action follows the approval in July of $1 million for the legal defense of indigenous immigrants.
