AG Applauds Deportation Focus on Felons

(SAN FRANCISCO) -- California Attorney General Kamala Harris is applauding the executive action on immigration announced by President Obama Thursday night, in particular the part about who will be the main focus of deportation efforts.

The president said while undocumented workers broke immigration laws and should be held accountable, "tracking down, rounding up, and deporting millions of people isn't realistic."

"That’s why we’re going to keep focusing enforcement resources on actual threats to our security. Felons, not families. Criminals, not children. Gang members, not a mother who's working hard to provide for her kids," Obama said.

In a statement Harris said, "These executive actions prioritize deporting felons not families, and will help restore trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve. This action will extend the American Dream to millions of individuals who want to come out of the shadows."
