Mayor Garcetti Launches National Effort Backing President's Immigration Executive Actions in Texas v. United States Case

#DACAworksLocal and national organizations and leaders urge the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to allow millions of working families and individuals who have immigrated to the U.S. the opportunity to succeed.

Mayor Eric Garcetti has launched an online effort to build public support for President Obama’s immigration executive actions, which are currently stalled by the Texas v. United States case. The letter calls for support of the President’s reform plans, which will provide temporary relief from deportation to immigrants with longstanding ties to the U.S. It will be delivered to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans next Thursday, June 9th.

“Recent Supreme Court triumphs show us that public opinion matters. By raising our voices, we are fulfilling our responsibility as Americans to pursue a more equal and inclusive society. We are asking the Fifth Circuit Court to implement these executive actions, which will build a more robust economy and strengthen core American values,” said Mayor Garcetti.
