Presente.org Applauds Obama for New DHS Rule for Immigrants Facing Family Hardship

Jan. 4, 2013

Presente.org applauds the Obama administration for implementing a new rule which will enable as many as 1 million of the estimated 11-12 million undocumented people living in the United States to regulate their status because they face extreme hardship.

“These are precisely the kinds of measures that Latino voters and the larger Latino community hoped President Obama would enact” said Arturo Carmona, Executive Director of Presente.org. “This most recent use of President Obama’s executive authority to improve the plight of immigrant families comes on the heels of his use of that same executive authority to improve the lives of the immigrant students benefitting from his Deferred Action policy announced late last year. We hope that the President will continue to use his executive authority to provide further relief to the millions of immigrants still toiling under the pressures of undocumented status.”
