ACLU Comment on Biden Plan to Keep Families Together 

WASHINGTON — The Biden administration is poised to announce an executive action today designed to protect many U.S. citizens’ undocumented spouses and their children from deportation and allow qualified Dreamers to obtain work visas.

Advocates and groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union, have pressed the administration for months to take such positive steps in the face of ongoing congressional inaction.

Deirdre Schifeling, the ACLU’s chief political and advocacy officer, had the following reaction:

“We applaud President Biden. This policy will help keep committed, loving families together, which strengthens all of our communities and is popular with voters. This act by the president is the type of humane and commonsense action that has made America stronger, with resilient, hardworking, and patriotic people coming to our cities and small towns, building lives and vibrant, stable communities, generation upon generation.”
