Disappointing 5th Circuit Decision is Call for Further Action
Yesterday, the Fifth Circuit issued a decision to uphold a preliminary injunction against President Obama’s expansion of administrative relief (DAPA) that would help keep families together. This decision is disappointing for advocates and devastating to our community members.
However, we at the MinKwon Center for Community Action will not be deterred. We will continue to fight for comprehensive reform, for immigrant justice.
In that spirit, the MinKwon Center participated in a Day of Action this morning with leaders and participants from the Immigrant Rights, Fight for 15, and Black Lives Matter Movements. We gathered to show that economic justice is racial justice is immigrant justice.
We are just one year shy of the 2016 presidential election. As we did today, the MinKwon Center will continue to fight for reform. We will continue to hold our elected officials accountable to the voices of the many. This disappointing decision delays much needed relief for our families. We now call on the Department of Justice to seek Supreme Court review of this unjust decision.
