Arizona Democratic Party Statement on Texas v United States

Statement from Arizona Democratic Party Executive Director Sheila Healy:

“Today’s court ruling endangers the lives of many children and parents looking to keep their families together. Although DACA and DAPA are only temporary fixes to a bigger problem, The Supreme Court’s ruling demonstrates the failure of a gridlock government, and the impact it has on Arizonans.

“As a country, we need to move past the divisive and outlandish rhetoric coming from the GOP’s presidential nominee, stop treating this like any ordinary dispute between political parties, and work together to solve this human tragedy. Hard-working Arizonans deserve better. Our organization will continue to fight for comprehensive immigration laws that protect Arizona’s families and at the same time strengthens our nation.”
