Takano Hails Biden Admin’s Action to Keep American Families Together

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Congressman Mark Takano (CA-39) hailed President Joe Biden’s decisive executive order that will help keep certain mixed-status American families together. The Biden-Harris Administration’s move will extend much needed legal status and work authorization to long-settled undocumented spouses and children of U.S. citizens.

“I applaud President Joe Biden’s bold action that made today’s historic executive order possible,” said Rep. Takano. “Countless American families across our nation will sleep easier knowing that their loved ones can continue to remain part of the communities they have long lived and contributed to. The President’s leadership stands in stark contrast tothe cruel agenda advanced by convicted felon Donald Trump and extreme Congressional Republicans whose immigrant families as political pawns. This executive action is a clear win for 500,000 American families that have been desperately yearning for relief."
