Mi Familia Vota Denounces Texas Order Blocking Biden’s 100-day Deportation Moratorium

We Must Turn The Page On Anti-Immigrant Extremism

Texas – A judge in Texas has halted President Joe Biden’s administration plan to pause deportations of undocumented immigrants for 100 days just two days after it started.  

Mi Familia Vota Executive Director Hector Sanchez Barba released the following statement: 

“Our country benefits from immigrants, their work, their contributions are invaluable to our economy and culture. President Biden was right to halt deportations after four years of the Gestapo like tactics of the past administration. This lawsuit from Texas is completely unnecessary, these workers are on our frontlines they are American in every way but their status. We should reward them, we should be honoring these immigrants. Mi Familia Vota will always fight for our immigrant brothers and sisters, we are fighting for a pathway to citizenship and denounce this outrageous Texas lawsuit.”

Angelica Razo, Texas State Director of Mi Familia Vota said:

Texas thrives because of the contributions of immigrants, both documented and undocumented. They are our family members, friends in our communities and their success is a testament to what makes our state great. It is saddening that judge in Texas does not recognize the value of immigrants for our communities and country. We denounce this action, and we will always fight for our immigrant friends and family who desperately need relief.
