Latino Groups Praise Members of Congress for Standing Against Deportations

NALACC, Casa de Maryland, FLIC, Presente.org, and Cuentame Issued the Following Joint Statement

Dec. 5, 2013

"We applaud the call by Congressman Grijalva and other members of Congress for a halt to deportations that have destroyed so many lives. We also support efforts by Members of Congress to educate the larger community as to the broad powers the President has to use his executive authority to halt deportations, powers he refuses to use. This is precisely the time for the entire Congressional Hispanic Caucus to show leadership and rally around this call to stop the suffering. Our organizations and hundreds of thousands of members stand with the immigrant and Latino communities demanding an end to failed and destructive deportation policies."
