Nebraska Appleseed statement on President’s Administrative Relief for Immigrants

Tonight, Nebraska Appleseed Immigrants & Communities Director Darcy Tromanhauser released the following statement on President Obama’s announcement of temporary administrative relief from deportation for some immigrants in the United States.

“President Obama’s announced administrative relief will temporarily stop the needless separation of millions of American families and is similar to actions taken by every U.S. President since Dwight Eisenhower,” said Darcy Tromanhauser, Nebraska Appleseed Immigrants & Communities Director. “This is a wise and reasonable temporary step, but we continue to urgently await action by Congress to create a long-term solution to our outdated immigration laws. Our communities, our economy, and our future will all be strengthened by common-sense immigration laws with a clear process for citizenship.”
