The Hispanic Coalition NY: Calling The POTUS

hispanic-coalitionNew York, NY – Along with our sports coverage, we value the importance of keeping our audience updated with the community news that come our way. Regardless of the sport and the results, our lives go on.

Now that Donald Trump has been elected as the 45th President of the United States, millions of Americans, Latinos and non-Americans are wondering how their lives will be impacted.

With that said, the fine folks from The Hispanic Coalition NY sent me a press release stating they will be attending the Albany NY Press Conference were they will call on President Obama to Stop Deportation of DACA Enrollees via Pardon Power.

As President-Elect Trump promises to fulfill his deportation promises, 50,000 DACA enrollees in NYS and another 250,000 who are eligible need immediate action from President of the United States…

WHO: Assemblyman Marcos Crespo, Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda, Assemblyman Ron Kim, Assemblyman Francisco Moya, Senator-Elect Marisol Alcantara, National Dreamer Advocate Cesar Vargas, The Asian American Federation, The New York Immigration Coalition, Northern Manhattan Coalition for Immigration Rights, The Hispanic Coalition of New York State, other members of the NYS Assembly Puerto Rican/Hispanic Task Force and undocumented students.

WHAT: The election of Donald Trump has created great uncertainty for millions of undocumented immigrants living in the United States, including 800,000 nationally and over 45,000 in New York State who have applied for and/or renewed for the Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program put in place by Executive Order by President Barack Obama.

With President-Elect Donald Trump promising to undo all Executive Orders issued by President Obama on immigration and initiate mass deportations DACA recipients and millions of law abiding undocumented immigrants are fearful of what will happen when the new Administration takes control in January.

However, President Obama has the power of pardons that he can use to protect all DACA enrollees. There is historical precedence to allow the President to do this as far back as 140 years ago and as recent as 42 years ago.

WHEN: Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at 10:00 AM

WHERE: Steps of New York City Hall, Manhattan, New York and simultaneously in Room 130, Legislative Office Building, Albany, New York

WHY: The Presidential primary season was full of vitriol on the issue of immigration, and now with the White House and both houses of Congress controlled by one party, we will surely begin to see mass deportation promises take shape.

While both House Speaker Ryan and President-Elect Trump have stated that they will begin with deportation of illegal immigrants with criminal records, the absence of comprehensive immigration reform protecting the majority of the 11 million undocumented, including DACA enrollees, makes their situation urgent and in need of remedy available to President Obama.
