UnidosUS Action Fund Statement on Biden's Executive Action to Extend Protections to Undocumented Spouses

Jun 18, 2024

"President Biden's proactive measures to keep American families together and provide pathways to permanence for DACA holders and undocumented spouses demonstrate his administration's dedication to creating a humane and orderly immigration system,” said UnidosUS Action Fund Executive Director Rafael Collazo. “This approach not only supports the more than 11 million mixed-status families in the U.S., but also addresses the top immigration priority for Latino voters: relief for the long-residing undocumented population.

In stark contrast, former President Trump and his allies continue to obstruct legislative progress and demonize hard-working immigrant families. Their policies have not only failed to resolve the immigration challenges facing our nation but have also exacerbated humanitarian crises and threatened the stability and unity of countless American families.

“We urge Congress to step up and support comprehensive immigration reform that addresses the status of all undocumented individuals with deep family and economic roots in the U.S. It is time for lawmakers to stop playing politics with people's lives and find real solutions to our common immigration challenges.”
