Last week President Obama announced executive action that will provide temporary relief to an anticipated 5 million people currently in the U.S. without documentation.
Shaina Aber offers an overview of President Obama’s executive action from her perspective as director of the U.S. Jesuit Conference’s National Advocacy Office. The U.S. Jesuits recently joined the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in showing support for significant portions of the executive action while also expressing concerns about issues such as militarization of the border, lack of oversight of border enforcement, and certain deportation guidelines.
This interview was recorded on Monday, November 24, 2014, via telephone. Shaina joined us from her office at the Jesuit Conference in Washington D.C.
