Statement regarding GOP reaction to Obama immigration plan
PHOENIX – “The Republican Party’s reaction to the President’s immigration proposal is very disappointing. Given that the President’s proposal is not far from the principles the GOP has put forward, we worry they’re simply putting politics before people. The lives of millions of families hang in the balance, and we urge all sides of the debate to put the families first. The current system is wreaking havoc on our communities – separating loved ones — and we need reform now.”
– Petra Falcon, Executive Director, Promise Arizona
