Boston and Cambridge Challenge the Court Injunction Against DACA & DAPA

The temporary court decision to block President Obama’s immigration programs have been challenged by over 70 municipal leaders nationwide. Recently, Boston’s Mayor Marty Walsh and the City of Cambridge joined to challenge the injunction against DAPA and DACA, proposed by President Obama to help long-time immigrant residents of the U.S. obtain basic immigration status.

Nationwide local leaders indicate that: “Local officials witness every day the contributions that immigrants make to their neighborhoods and communities, as well as the harms that result from keeping long-time residents of those neighborhoods and communities in the shadows due to their immigration status.”
