Orange County is celebrating Supreme Court, state legislative and local school district victories for Black lives, LGBTQ lives, immigrants and public health. DNC Member-Elect and Democratic Party of Orange County Chair Ada Briceño says these victories are crucial, but we’re far from done.
Among U.S. counties, Orange County has the fourth-largest population of people eligible for DACA protection, with an estimated 54,000 eligible last year, according to data from the Migration Policy Institute.
Ada Briceño, a Co-President for the hotel workers union, UNITE HERE Local 11, in Orange County challenges her labor colleagues this Labor Day to embrace immigrant rights and stand with 800,000 young people across the nation who receive refuge as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) just as President Trump reconsiders the program.
Los fraudulentos, que durante mucho tiempo se han dirigido a las comunidades de inmigrantes, aumentarán sus esfuerzos en los próximos meses con la presidencia de Donald J. Trump y sus promesas de posiciones mucho más duras sobre la inmigración, advierten los grupos de ayuda legal y los defensores de los inmigrantes.
About 80 people came together Wednesday to march throughout downtown Santa Ana in a demonstration of their anger with the Supreme Court’s vote last week that blocked President Obama’s immigration reform.
