Mayor Greg Stanton released the following statement on the President’s decision to allow certain young immigrants to apply for work authorization:

"We need to support our young people, the people who are making the right choices, the future of our city. At a local level, we see these situations every day, especially with those who were brought here at a young age. It’s heart breaking that good kids who grew up calling our cities home could be deported through no fault of their own. This is a step in the right direction by the administration.”
