Network of Arab American Groups Calls on Obama to
Take Immediate Action on Immigration Relief

Tuesday, August 19, 2014 - Dearborn, Mich. - The National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC) sent a letter to President Obama today calling on him to take immediate, broad and bold action to bring relief to millions of undocumented immigrants across the United States. The Arab American community continues to be deeply impacted by our broken immigration system.

“Our communities are tired of being treated like a political football. We need bold and swift action from President Obama to bring much needed relief to immigrant families. We have worked too long and too hard and we will not wait any longer,” said Nadia El-Zein Tonova, Director of NNAAC.

“President Obama has the power to take bold actions and we are counting him to keep his promises.”
