Another Blow to the Immigrant Community

At this time it is unknown what their future will be or if there will be any plans to provide another legal path for them and their families.
" We are deeply saddened that the trump administration has decided to uproot over 200,000 who have live here for almost two decades and are contributors to our society. This populations has made a home here in the US and to expel them now is inhumane." -Cesar Espinosa Executive Director FIEL.
