Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on President Obama's Executive Action to Begin to Fix Our Broken Immigration System

Yesterday, President Obama made good on a promise he made to take executive action on immigration where Republicans in Congress have continually failed to do so.

For decades, Americans of all stripes have been calling for reform of our broken immigration system. Today, thanks to the advance work of countless organizations, volunteers and activists, that process begins.

The President is taking a multitude of actions to reform our broken immigration systemincluding strengthening security, focusing enforcement resources on those who commit violent crimes and ending the fear of being torn apart for millions of families across the nation.

California Democrats stand united in support of President Obama's leadership.
