Today’s split ruling (4-4) from the Supreme Court of the United States in Texas v. United States put the dreams of millions of immigrants and their families on hold.
California is home to the largest numbers of immigrants in this country. Immigrants have kept California young, innovative and culturally rich. There are nearly three million undocumented immigrants in California. Yet, they contribute $302 billion to our state’s economy and have paid $2.7 billion in taxes. These families work hard and with pride. They hold fast to the American dream and live the values this country was founded on.
