LOS ANGELES -- Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today issued a statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to hear the Texas case evaluating President Obama’s immigration program, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA), this term. 

“Today is a great day for California and the entire nation.  The Supreme Court’s decision to grant review in United States v. Texas means that millions of hard-working immigrants – including 1.2 million Californians – will finally have their day in the Supreme Court.  DAPA and expanded DACA, which were a lawful exercise of the President’s authority, will bring law-abiding immigrant families out of the shadows, boost our economy, and make communities safer.  I urge the Court to restore the rule of law by unfreezing these programs and giving millions of immigrants the justice they deserve.”
