SAN FRANCISCO  Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today issued the following statement on the Federal District Court’s decision to grant an injunction against the implementation of President Barack Obama’s immigration executive actions.

“President Obama has proposed common-sense actions to help address our broken immigration system—using the same executive authority that every president has used in the last five decades. I am disappointed by the District Court’s ruling, which will delay justice and fairness for many immigrant families.  Bringing nearly five million individuals out of the shadows will promote public safety, benefit our economy and extend the American Dream.”
