Rep. Gutiérrez Says Refusing Refugees “Is Despicable and Cowardly and Precisely the Kind of Reaction ISIS Wanted”

Nov 17, 2015 Press Release

Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez (D-IL) spoke on the House floor (at approximately 10:00 a.m. ET) in response to Governor Rauner of Illinois and a dozen or more mostly Republican governors who said their states would refuse to take refugees fleeing terror and the Assad regime in Syria. Governors do not actually have this power, so their executive orders and pronouncements have overstepped their bounds, but Rep. Gutiérrez called their rejection of refugees “despicable and cowardly and exactly the kind of reaction ISIS wanted” in response to the Paris terror attacks.

Rep. Gutiérrez on Fifth Circuit Ruling and Expected Supreme Court Appeal

Nov 10, 2015 Press Release

Washington, DC – On Monday, in a 2-1 ruling, a panel of three judges upheld a lower court’s temporary injunction stalling implementation of President Obama’s two deferred action programs granting relief to certain immigrants with deep ties to the United States. The President announced an expansion of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and DAPA (Deferred Action for Parental Accountability) in November 2014 after Republicans in the House blocked bipartisan immigration reform. As many as 5 million people will be able to apply for protection under deferred action once the temporary injunction is struck down. In all likelihood, the case is now headed to the Supreme Court, which could act sometime next year.
