Labor praises Obama’s immigration stance

Lorena Gonzalez

San Diego Labor Council Secretary-Treasurer/CEO Lorena Gonzalez has praised President Obama’s announcement deferring action on immigrant young adults. Calling the announcement “an encouraging step in beginning to address our nation’s dire need for comprehensive immigration reform,” Gonzalez said in a statement, “These are some of San Diego’s best and brightest, and the president’s actions allow them to finally live without fear of separation from their families and deportation to a country they barely remember. This talented group of young Americans was educated here and has been working to build a better community for all of us. Beginning today, they can come into the open to pursue their dreams right here, where they call home. San Diego will be stronger for their extraordinary contributions and I commend this administration for its courage and leadership in taking an important step toward a more just America.”
