Presente.org to President Obama: 5 Million is Not Enough

Nov. 19, 2014

Statement from Presente.org Executive Director Arturo Carmona on rampant rumors that tomorrow President Obama will take executive action on immigration:

"Rumors of Presidential Executive Action helping only 5 million would not even deal with half of the problem we currently face,” said Arturo Carmona, Executive Director of Presente.org. "The fact of the matter is that Republicans will show no mercy regardless of whether it is a comprehensive or partial solution. This week, the President has a historic opportunity right his previous betrayals of the Latino community and lead the Democratic Party and Latinos back together. For that, we need a broad and inclusive executive order that begins to protect all 11 million undocumented immigrants."
