President Obama’s announcement last week regarding plans to invoke executive action shielding millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation drew mixed reactions from throughout the country. For one, National Public Radio sought on-air reactions specifically from the immigrant-heavy southwestern United States and interviewed UCLA student Justino Mora (in white shirt talking to President Obama months ago) in Los Angeles. Mora — a PoliSci major and immigration reform advocate — talked about those who the executive order doesn’t benefit, which in his case strikes close to home … and family.
Mora was also interviewed on the president’s plans in the Los Angeles Times, here.
(Note: Justino Mora was the student webmaster for the Political Science Department during the 2013-14 academic year.)
