Oregon lawmakers aim to increase protections of immigrants

Public bodies in Oregon would be prohibited from sharing information about a person’s immigration status and details like addresses, except when required by law, under a bill filed Wednesday in the Oregon House.

The bill was filed by Teresa Alonso Leon, a Democrat from Woodburn, and Diego Hernandez, a Democrat from Portland as federal immigration officials are stepping up enforcement activities under President Donald Trump.
