Los Angeles city leaders are considering a series of moves designed to protect immigrants in this city illegally in the wake of Donald Trump’s election, including the hiring of an immigration advocate and policies to prevent L.A. residents from being deported. 
Worried that Trump will pursue mass deportations once in office, Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson announced the effort Thursday, saying Angelenos are “deeply concerned” about changes to federal immigration policies under Trump.
“These concerns should not be underestimated,” he wrote.
Wesson said he wants the City Council to create a new position of immigrant advocate and come up with strategies for protecting all federal grants, loans and other funds during the Trump administration. He also asked city analysts to provide a formal definition of “sanctuary city” and determine how such a term might affect Los Angeles.
