April 18th

On Monday, April 18, thousands of families and advocates gathered at the U.S. Supreme Court to show their support for President Obama’s immigration executive action. The Court heard oral arguments on the deferred action initiatives, DAPA and expanded DACA. Members of Congress, elected officials, and community, civil rights and labor leaders joined families eligible for deferred action and thousands more to send a strong message in defense of the president’s immigration action.

As leaders and supporters called on the justices to lift the block against the initiatives at the steps of the Supreme Court, more than twenty cities held actions to echo their call and urge elected leaders to champion these lawful immigration programs.
