Governor Quinn Statement on President Obama’s Bold Action on Immigration

“Hard-working immigrants who make positive contributions to their communities and our country deserve the chance to succeed. President Obama’s action today means that hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants will have the chance to build a brighter future for themselves.

“I fought for and signed the Illinois DREAM Act to ensure that all Illinois children have the opportunity to get a good education. Today’s announcement means that immigrants can pursue their education and their careers without fear of being removed from the only home they have ever known.”

“President Obama’s leadership on this issue will make our nation stronger now and in the future.”
