Rev. Samuel Rodriguez and NHCLC Respond to President's Announcement on Dream Act, Children and Deportations:
"Today's announcement by the Obama Administration protecting Dream Act eligible young people from deportation is morally just, welcomed, practical, fair and worthy of celebration. As we prepare to celebrate Father's day this weekend, this announcement presents the antidote to the unfortunate separation of families. I applaud the President for his decision to protect the innocent who currently pay the price for a broken immigration system. Let me reiterate, Justice at times marches, at times protests and at times sings. Yet, Justice will always speak on behalf of those that cannot speak for themselves. Today, Justice spoke loud and clear, the dreams of all children stand worthy of protection. Today, we placed our feet at the edge of the Jordan. We may not be in the Promise Land yet, but today, our children can begin to contemplate a better life on the other side. Today, we left the desert of despair and began a true journey where the dream becomes reality."
