Dolores Huerta, Families, Activist, Artists, and Elected Officials Rally at Supreme Court Steps for DAPA and DACA+ 4/18/16

On Monday, April 18, Dolores Huerta joined families and advocates at the U.S. Supreme Court to show their support for President Obama’s immigration executive action. The Court heard oral argument on the deferred action initiatives, DAPA and expanded DACA.

Congressmen Dick Durbin, Bob Menéndez, Luis Gutierrez, Joaquin Castro and other members of Congress, along with community, civil rights and labor leaders, joined families eligible for deferred action and thousands of supporters in actions across the country to send a strong message in defense of the president’s immigration action. 

As leaders and supporters called on the justices to lift the block against the initiatives at the steps of the Supreme Court, more than twenty cities held actions to echo their call and urge elected leaders to champion these lawful immigration programs.
