Trump y sus promesas de posiciones mucho más duras sobre la inmigración, advierten los grupos de ayuda legal y los defensores de los inmigrantes.

OC Immigrant Communities to Hold March for a Moratorium on Deportations
What: March for a moratorium on deportations
When: June 29 | 5:00 PM
Where: Meeting Location – Sasscer Park in Santa Ana (on the corner of Ross and 4th Street)
Santa Ana, CA – Orange County Immigrant Youth United (OCIYU) will host a march to demand that President Obama issue a moratorium on deportations following last Thursday’s Supreme Court split decision that left in place the injunction against the President’s Administrative Relief Programs, DAPA and extended DACA, while leaving existing immigration enforcement programs untouched. The march will take place in Santa Ana, and pass through residential areas with high immigrant communities, and will then make its way toward the Santa Ana City Jail which is used as a detention center for LGBTQ immigrants by ICE, the OC Sheriff’s Department which collaborates with ICE under 287(g), and the local ICE office. Following the Supreme Court decision, OCIYU joined the Not1More Deportation Campaign in calling for a moratorium on deportations. Wednesday’s march follows protests in Phoenix, Atlanta, and Hartford organized by Not1More members.

WASHINGTON, D.C. –Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-46), co-chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus’s Immigration Task Force, released the following statement after the Supreme Court’s 4-4 split decision on U.S. v. Texas, which was a lower-court challenge to the expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) programs. This deadlocked case affects millions of citizens and non-citizens, many of whom are Latino. “I am deeply disappointed by Supreme Court’s abject failure to provide millions of immigrant families with clarity and guidance as their stability hangs in the balance. It’s vital to remember that while the Supreme Court’s tied decision doesn’t set precedent and doesn’t constitute a decision on the merits, this is still a devastating blow for hard-working immigrant families.
