Senator Garcia Supports Action on Immigration

 

Austin, TX – President Barack Obama is expected to announce his executive order on immigration this evening. While the details are still unknown, Senator Sylvia Garcia (SD-6) supports the protections for immigrants that the executive order will reportedly provide.

"As we approach the Thanksgiving holidays, I am thankful that President Obama has taken action that will allow millions across our country to celebrate with their families and loved ones without fear of deportation. While this historic order is a step in the right direction, we must continue to fight for meaningful comprehensive immigration reform that provides lasting relief to all of the family members and friends stuck in limbo due to a broken immigration system and Washington gridlock. It is my hope that the President's bold actions will spur Congressional action that creates a path to citizenship for all of the hardworking immigrants in our communities."
