“Decisive Action by President Biden is a Victory for American Families” – Vanessa Cárdenas Reacts to President Biden’s Announcement

Washington, DC — The following is a statement from Vanessa Cárdenas, Executive Director of America’s Voice, reacting to today’s White House immigration actions: 

“Today’s decisive action by President Biden is a victory for American families, our economy, and our country. This would not have been possible without the tireless organizing and advocacy of immigrant communities and impacted individuals. Hundreds of thousands of husbands, wives, and children can breathe a sigh of relief, knowing they are one step closer to becoming citizens of the country they have long called home. We commend President Biden for taking this much-needed step to ensure that American families stay together. 

These common-sense policies, broadly supported by the American public, also clarify the stakes and contrasts during this election: expanding opportunities and protections for long-settled immigrants and American families versus separating families, mass roundups, and unsparing deportations. While the President is working within the law to keep families together, protect DACA recipients, and allow long-settled immigrants to stay, opponents of immigration are plotting to deport these same people on Day 1 of a new Republican administration.”
