US Mayors Conf. Focuses on Immigration 06/23 06:11

   MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- More than 250 U.S. mayors are meeting in Florida 
at a time when many cities are pushing back against Trump administration 
policies on climate change and immigration.

   The U.S. Conference of Mayors opens its annual meeting Friday in Miami 
Beach. Mayors of cities with populations of 30,000 or more will discuss plans 
to reduce the nation's carbon footprint and protect immigrant families.

   City leaders will also consider efforts to curb gun violence and safeguard 
local government and public school funds that face cuts under President Donald 
Trump's policies.

   The event will feature special guests such as former New York City Mayor 
Michael Bloomberg, U.S. Labor Secretary Alex Acosta and U.S. Veterans Affairs 
Secretary David Shulkin.

   The mayors will vote Monday on policy resolutions to send to federal 
lawmakers in Washington.
