‘It applies to serious crimes’
PERINO: "Fox News has learned that progressive Los Angeles County DA George Gascon sent a directive to prosecutors asking them to avoid filing charges against suspects that could lead to deportation. Why? Well, William La Jeunesse live in L.A. with more. Hi, William."
LA JEUNESSE: "Good morning, Dana. Sources within the L.A. DA's office say this new directive from George Gascon allows anyone under criminal investigation to contact the DA's office before a case is filed and notify them that charges could have quote, 'adverse immigration consequences.' And if alternatives exist, DAs are told to pursue those instead.”
