Liberty Hill Stands with L.A.'s Dreamers

by Crystal Shaw on September 05, 2017

The November election was a reminder to Liberty Hill and its committed donor-activists that justice and equality are values we can never take for granted. The fight for immigrant rights is one of many we stand ready to take on. Today’s decision to terminate the DACA program is a heartbreaking blow to many young immigrants whose only aspiration is to achieve the American Dream through hard work and determination. Our city is a testament to the vitality and economic vibrancy that immigrants contribute, and we are stronger because of our immigrant communities. An attack on immigrants is an attack on the American value of fairness, an attack on our economy and an attack on young people who want nothing more than the chance to dream. It is now up to Congress to have the moral courage to do the right thing. Alongside immigrant communities and activists, we will make it clear that we expect our representatives to be on the side of justice.
