LOS ANGELES- Attorney General Kamala D. Harris released the following statement on the Supreme Court's 4-4 ruling in U.S. v. Texas, sending the case back to the lower court and maintaining the freeze on President Obama's deferred action programs that would have protected millions of immigrants from deportation.

"I am deeply disappointed in today’s Supreme Court ruling in United States v. Texas. As a nation, we must not accept a status quo in which families continue to be ripped apart.  We must not accept a status quo in which hard-working immigrants are demonized. And we must not accept a status quo in which millions of our friends and neighbors are living in the shadows. 

While today's ruling is a setback, it's not a defeat. Now, more than ever, Congress needs to put divisive political games aside to pass comprehensive immigration reform and finally allow relief and dignity for millions of American families."
