AILA Doc. No. 12061533 | Dated June 15, 2012
NASHVILLE, TN -
The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) applauds today's announcement offering Deferred Action to eligible younger immigrants. This action will change the lives of young people who call America home, but who have been unable to live free from the fear of deportation to a country they may not even remember.
"Both sides of the aisle in Congress are discussing solutions for this highly deserving group. By using its legal authority to provide temporary protection from the threat of deportation and enable these young people to actively and openly contribute to our society and economy, the Administration is addressing an issue that has broad bipartisan support," AILA President Laura Lichter said.
"This represents a triumph of reason over rhetoric," Lichter continued. "However, it does not offer a permanent fix for these young people. This announcement creates space for Congress to truly take on this issue and find the desperately needed solutions to our broken immigration system."
The American Immigration Lawyers Association is the national association of immigration lawyers established to promote justice, advocate for fair and reasonable immigration law and policy, advance the quality of immigration and nationality law and practice, and enhance the professional development of its members.
