LOS ANGELES - Attorney General Kamala D. Harris released the following statement today in response to the ruling by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, striking down President Barack Obama’s deferred action immigration programs:

“President Obama has proposed commonsense actions to help address our broken immigration system—using the same executive authority that every president in the last five decades has used. I am disappointed by the Fifth Circuit’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. My office will continue to lead the way in defending the President’s actions so that we can enjoy a safer, more prosperous California.”
