EL PUEBLO STATEMENT ON SUPREME COURT IMMIGRATION DECISION
“El Pueblo is saddened to hear that the Supreme Court has halted the expansion of deferred action programs that have already benefitted thousands of North Carolinians. We have worked closely with young people who have taken advantage of the original Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and many El Pueblo families would have qualified for the expanded programs that will continue to be stalled after the Court’s action today. While we are disappointed in the actions of our governor and the others who took part in this lawsuit, we will continue to support future programs that help immigrant families, as we promote the wellbeing of all North Carolina residents.
--Angeline Echeverría, Executive Director for El Pueblo
