Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, Representing California’s 46th Congressional District




WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-46), senior member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, and member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus today responded to President Obama’s announcement that he will use his authority to protect over four million undocumented immigrants from the threat of deportation.

“The President’s announcement tonight provides long-awaited relief for millions of families suffering from our broken immigration system. It’s been 511 days since the Senate overwhelmingly passed bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform. All House Republicans had to do was bring it to the floor, but because they were unwilling to use their power to act the President had to act. Executive action is not ideal, but unfortunately it is necessary.

“However, Republicans in the House and Senate are not off the hook. Congress has a responsibility to pass the comprehensive reform necessary to provide certainty for American communities, businesses and families. I will continue to work towards the kind of permanent reform only Congress can enact.”


Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez is proud to represent California’s 46th Congressional District, which includes the cities of Anaheim, Santa Ana, and parts of the cities of Garden Grove and Orange in Orange County.

    Editor – That is a headline worthy of an explanation in detail – which you did not give in this article. Why is this an overreach by Obama in your opinion?

    1. I believe this country needs real immigration reform. What Obama did was temporary and was a slap to the face of the GOP controlled Congress.

        1. Truck Drivin’ Mike, I think Greg Diamonds balls ary trying up, why don’t you head back over there with that wagging tounge.
