    On June 30, 2014, President Obama announced that he is ready to take executive action to address our broken immigration system and keep families together. After years of fighting for just and humane immigration reform, this is welcome news for our communities. The Administration has not yet announced any specific plans, but the President signalled he would take action at the end of the summer. We hope that Presidential relief can provide an end to deportations while we wait for a permanent fix to our broken immigration system.
