Stop Deportation of Dreamers

Resolution Number 11-07.23

Whereas, President Obama spoke in Texas of the necessity for immigration reform and of his support for young undocumented immigrants who have lived in the United States most of their lives andwho face deportation to foreign nations to which they have no ties, and these deportations of our children do not protect us and instead terrorizes the immigrant community, and

Whereas, aspects of the Dream Act such as curtailing deportation of our children can be implemented by Executive Order and many Presidents in the past have issued Executive Orders to promote fairness and justice when Congress failed to act and President Obama has a reservoir of authority to alter administrative and regulatory processes as well as to affect the implementation of law, so

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party urges President Obamato adopt an Executive order to stop the deportation of persons who otherwise qualify for the Dream Act; and

THEREFORE BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Chair of the California Democratic Party send copies of this resolution to President Obama and elected Democrats in the California State Legislature and in the California Congressional delegation
