On June 23, 2016 Supreme Court ruled against DAPA/expanded DACA, the 2 initiatives announced by President Obama to provide deportation relief and work permits to an estimated 5 million undocumented immigrants.
We are outraged and deeply disappointed that the Supreme Court ruled against the President’s executive orders and in support of a lawsuit that stands out for being politically partisan and deeply anti-immigrant. The fact remains, DAPA and expanded DACA are commonsense initiatives that are consistent with decades of actions taken by presidents of both parties. They are what is best for America.

While today’s misguided outcome is deeply disappointing, the Berkshire Immigrant Center and our welcoming community will continue to fight until every member of our community can live in dignity, without fear of being separated from their families. Now more than ever we must the hold anti-immigrant politicians responsible for this attack against families accountable.
Immigrants, their families and allies will remember in November who stood with us and who was against us. Our voices will be heard through our votes. This battle is far from over and we are counting on you to stay in the fight with us.
