Presente.org Responds to House Vote Blocking President Obama's Executive Immigration Actions

Jan. 14, 2015

Today, the House of Representatives passed legislation to overturn President Barack Obama's immigration policies.

In response, Arturo Carmona of Presente.org released the following statement:

“House Republicans have declared war on Latino and immigrant families. First Republicans in the House elected white supremacist supporting House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, and now they are working to dismantle Latino families. 2016 is coming, and any Republican strategist that doesn’t see this as a disaster for Republican candidates for President simply isn’t paying attention. We are watching, we are organizing, and we will vote in 2016."
