Obama decision is positive step forward


STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX - Senate Democratic Leader David Schapira released the following statement today in response to the announcement by President Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano that the U.S. will stop deporting younger, law-abiding undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. as children

Sen. Schapira
"Spurred by the failure of Congress to enact the DREAM Act or comprehensive immigration reform, this directive reaffirms our country’s core belief of being the land of opportunity,” said Sen. Schapira. 
“Those who are affected by this directive represent some of the best and brightest children in our schools and young men and women who have served our country in uniform. Comprehensive immigration reform is still needed; however, this is a positive step forward while Congress continues to ignore the problem.”
