SACRAMENTO — Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC), released the following statement in support of DACA:
“America’s endless string of broken promises to our Dreamers lays entirely at the feet of one branch of the United States government: Congress. It’s time for Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Schumer to settle this once and for all and then to move immediately to comprehensive immigration reform. It isn’t for our Presidents, Judges or Justices to make our laws. Congress must do that. Inaction in a Democrat-controlled Congress is equally reprehensible as inaction by a Republican-controlled Congress. Both lead to gross injustice.”
