SAN ANTONIO (October 17, 2019) — City Council unanimously approved case Z-6 on today's Zoning agenda which requested future expansion of the offices of the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES). Located in the Five Points neighborhood in District 1, RAICES is the largest non-profit organization to provide immigrant legal services in the state. District 1 City Councilman Roberto Treviño supported the zoning change and provided the following statement:
"With the current status of migrant displacement and separation, District 1 is grateful for the opportunity to support benevolent organizations like RAICES. I am proud to support the ongoing efforts of RAICES as they defend the rights of underserved immigrant children and families.
