      Briefing on Effort to Compel L.A. County to Send Bills for Immigrant Health

      WASHINGTON (August 2004) -- An unprecedented lawsuit that could force the
      U.S. government to enforce immigration law will be the subject of a briefing
      sponsored by the Center for Immigration Studies next Wednesday, August 18. Friends
      of Immigration Law Enforcement (FILE) has initiated a court action against
      Los Angeles County, which is providing health care to foreign nationals at the
      expense of American taxpayers. The lawsuit seeks to compel the county to seek
      reimbursement from the immigrants' sponsors for the services rendered, as
      required by Federal law.

      ''There is widespread disregard for enforcement of our immigration laws, and
      this suit has the potential to have serious repercussions both legally and
      politically,'' said Craig Nelsen, Director of FILE.

      Formed two years ago, FILE is a non-profit association of hundreds of
      attorneys, researchers, law enforcement officers, legislators, and others. It has
      focused attention on the U.S. government's failures to enforce immigration laws
      by filing briefs, drafting legislation, and initiating litigation.

      On Wednesday, August 18, at 9 a.m., the Center for Immigration Studies will
      host an hour-long briefing at which Mr. Nelsen will discuss the Los Angeles
      lawsuit, as well as FILE's involvement in the case of Yaser Esam Hamdi, an enemy
      combatant captured in Afghanistan who claimed U.S. citizenship. The case was
      decided by the Supreme Court in June.

      The briefing is free and open to the public. It will be held at the Center's
      offices at 1522 K Street NW, Suite 820, near the Metro's Farragut North and
      McPherson Square stations. For more information, contact John Keeley at (202)
