Presente.org: After Raising Hopes for Action, President Obama Betrays the Latino Community by Delaying Executive Action

Sept. 6, 2014

Statement from Arturo Carmona, Executive Director of Presente.org:

“Today’s announcement by President Obama is shameful, and he is once again demonstrating that for him, politics come before the lives of Latino and immigrant families. Adding salt to the wound, President Obama raised the hopes of millions of Latinos across America by promising action only to smash them for percieved political gain.

"This delay is a betrayal of the Latino community,and is certainly one of the single biggest attacks on Latino families by the Democratic Party in recent memory. With news of recently deported children dying in Honduras and record level deportations and separations of families continuing, all eyes are on the President's actions that totally devalue Latino life.”
