Live From Las Vegas: LULAC Plenary Starts at 2 pm PST / 5 pm EST Watch Here
* 2024 LULAC National Convention & Exposition.


The following statement is made by Domingo Garcia, National President of the League of United Latin American Citizens, LULAC, the nation's oldest and largest Latino civil rights organization, in response to President Biden's new executive order on immigration.

"LULAC supports a new policy to address the humanitarian crisis at the border to limit the number of asylum claims with which our border patrol officers and immigration judges can deal daily. Many border towns such as Eagle Pass, Del Rio, and El Paso need the resources to support these refugees.

However, LULAC does not support using Trump-era policies, such as 'remain in Mexico' on border enforcement with arriving refugees seeking asylum.

LULAC urges President Biden to work with Claudia Sheinbaum, the incoming Mexican President, to deal with refugees on Mexican soil, as well as leaders from the countries from where these immigrants come.

LULAC is highly disappointed by the failure of the President to use his executive powers to provide work permits to undocumented immigrants who have been here for five years or more without progress on immigration reform.

We need bipartisan immigration reform in Congress to develop a real solution to our country's need for workers and to protect our nation from cartels and foreign agents."
