Mayor Rawlings-Blake Issues A Statement to Mark the One-Year Anniversary of President Obama’s Executive Action Granting Deferred Action to the Parents of U.S. Children
Friday Nov 20th, 2015
Better Schools. Safer Streets. Stronger Neighborhoods.
BALTIMORE, Md. (November 20, 2015)—Today marks a year since President Obama announced his Executive Actions granting Deferred Action to hardworking immigrants. Efforts to block the president’s actions have only hurt the economy of our city, standing in the way of immigrants who want to reach their fullest potential and strengthen our communities. Despite the delay, we remain confident that the President’s Actions will be upheld in the highest court and enforced, benefiting millions of families and spurring economic growth nationwide. We are undeterred and will continue our efforts to fully integrate all of our citizens and keep our cities as centers of vitality, creativity, and the engine of small business growth. These reforms will be implemented, and we look forward to ensuring all eligible persons will be brought forward and granted their full rights under the President's lawful executive actions.
