FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

“Shame on you Judge Hanen. President Obama was well within his power, moving on an immigration policy that Congress continues to sit on.
I stand with the president in keeping families together, and allowing hard working men and women to contribute to our great nation.
It is our moral imperative as a nation of immigrants to continue our tradition as a nation of immigrants. The reality is that we cannot deport our way out of this situation.
History is on our side and now is the time to make true the promise of democracy.”
Los Angeles City Councilmember Gil Cedillo has sponsored legislation at the local level to establish linkages with non-profits who provide immigration services, and to include these types of services to immigration community in the city’s relevant departments in anticipation of the implementation of the immigration executive order.
