Street vendors are part of the fabric of LA, selling everything from bacon-wrapped hot dogs to ice cream. It's perfectly legal here, except in public parks.
That means vendors in America illegally who violates the rule could face criminal charges that get the attention of immigration authorities. Then they could be deported.
But this week, members of the LA City Council moved to protect these vendors, including Councilman Mitch O'Farrell who talked with Take Two.
