East Valley residents give mixed reviews for Obama’s immigration action

In the agricultural Eastern Coachella Valley, an overwhelmingly Latino and immigrant population, many residents are personally impacted by Obama’s executive immigration order, or they have family members who are affected. A large group gathered at a community center to hear the announcement, and voiced mixed reactions. “The President’s executive actions can be seen as a positive sign of his good will. However, the actions are temporary, they can be revoked by any subsequent president. So, while the actions may be a step in the right direction, there is much more work to be done.” Read more responses on Coachella Unincorporated.
