Presente.org: DHS Nomination Provides New Hope for Immigrants

Oct. 18, 2013

Following the nomination of Jeh Johnson to lead the Department of Homeland Security, Arturo Carmona, Executive Director of Presente.org, the largest national Latino online advocacy organization in the country, issued the following statement:

"This nomination provides an enormous opportunity to provide relief to millions of immigrants suffering under the boot of terrible and failed immigration policies of the past five years. More than any other agency in the federal government, the Department of Homeland Security has supervised the destruction of families of immigrants across the United States. We hope and expect that Mr. Johnson really does represent a sea change."
