Nation’s Largest Online Latino Group Responds to Republicans “Stand-Alone” Immigration Bill

Feb. 24, 2015

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

"The new "stand alone" bill unveiled by Republicans today hones in on a strategy that attacks the heart and soul of President Obama’s Executive Action and is an assault on over 4 million immigrant families in the United States. There seems to be no limits to the anti-immigrant and anti-Latino crusade that Republicans have waged over the President's historic actions on deportations. To bring the Department of Homeland Security to the brink of shutting down over their offensive to deport and separate Dreamers and immigrant families is deplorable. This issue has galvanized the Latino electorate in a historic way. Both Republicans and moderate Democrats should know that there will be consequences for standing on the wrong side of the issue.”
