LATINO LEADERS CALL ON PRESIDENT OBAMA TO HONOR COMMITMENT TO LATINOS, MOVE ON IMMIGRATION REFORM

NHLA urges steps to fairly enforce immigration law following President Obama’s meeting with Hispanic leaders in Congress

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Lillian Rodriguez-López, chair of the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda (NHLA), a coalition of the 30 leading Hispanic organizations in the United States, issued a statement following President Barack Obama’s meeting with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

“President Obama has the power to stop the unfair deportations of students, parents, and other noncriminal immigrants. These deportations have torn thousands of families apart. We want the President to begin taking these modest steps immediately to enforce immigration law more fairly. The members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus deserve our community’s thanks for meeting with the President yesterday to urge him to use his authority to ensure greater discretion is used in deportations and other adverse immigration enforcement actions.
