Help Pass the NY DREAM Act! PDF Print E-mail

Over 3,600 undocumented students graduate from New York State high schools every year, but only a small percentage go on to pursue a college education due to financial obstacles. The New York Dream Act would help thousands of students qualify for state financial assistance and fulfill their dreams of achieving a college degree. Earlier this year, Governor Cuomo included the New York Dream Act in his executive budget and the NYS Assembly passed the bill again on February 26th. Due to the support of people like you, the NY Dream Act is closer to becoming a reality than ever before.

HF Statement on the Southern District Court Preliminary Injunction on President Obama’s Immigration Executive Actions PDF Print E-mail

New York, NY –Hispanic Federation released the following statement today after the Southern District Court issued a preliminary injunction on President Obama’s Immigration Executive Actions – the expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and the establishment of the Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) initiative – in Texas v. United States:

“Today’s federal district court injunction on the President’s immigration executive actions is disappointing and an unfortunate delay in exempting millions of immigrants from deportation and grant them work authorization,” stated José Calderón, President of the Hispanic Federation. “In light of Congressional gridlock and inaction, we welcome the President’s needed, legal and sensible decision to use an executive order to address our broken and dysfunctional immigration system. As we’ve said before, if Congress won’t act to protect our families and communities, then the President must. Hundreds of constitutional and legal scholars have affirmed that President Obama’s executive actions on immigration are lawful and consistent with those of past U.S. Presidents. Despite this legal delay, we will continue preparing our community to soon take advantage of President Obama’s plan to grant temporary relief to millions of immigrants who have waited for our nation to act while working to make this country a better place."
