Pasadena is redrawing its city council districts and one organization claims the new lines discriminate against Hispanics.

Pasadena held a council meeting about the redistricting last night. The city is going from eight city council districts to six, with two at-large districts.

Some Hispanics complained about the new city council lines even before they were drawn, claiming there will be fewer Hispanics on city council.

There are three different options for council redistricting.
