Pro-Immigrant activists are calling on President Obama to pardon all immigrants who have illegally crossed into the United States and to expand the network of sanctuary cities to provide shelter and security for law-breaking aliens.
In a last ditch effort to protect those who may be deported under President Elect Trump’s immigration polices, several pro-immigrant leaders are pushing for a pardon for the estimated 11 million illegal aliens currently in the country.
Political director for PICO National Network, Bishop Dwayne Royster, said. “This is not a political issue; but rather a moral imperative. It’s time for President Obama to use his constitutional powers to protect vulnerable individuals and families and pardon communities from an administration intent on doing harm to those whom the bible calls, ‘the least of these’.”
