Law 360

Alex Westerfield was quoted in the Law360 article, “California City Barred From Using Prisons To Detain Immigrants.” The story covers a California federal judge's decision to block the City of McFarland from moving forward with plans to convert local prisons into immigrant detention centers run by GEO Group Inc., finding that advocacy groups posed "serious questions" on whether the public was properly notified.

Alex, who represents the advocacy groups Immigrant Legal Resource Center and Freedom for Immigrants that are involved in the matter, commented that his clients are “pleased that the court has halted the permit changes for the time being.”

David Lee and Elizabeth Key also provide counsel for the advocacy groups.
