Pro-immigrant organizations such as La Union Del Pueblo Entero also reacted to Obama’s announcement on executive action to fix the broken immigration system.

The non-profit organization says it will keep a close eye on what the president will do to change the system.

The director of “La Union Del Pueblo Entero” tells Fox 2 News they hope the president will take decisive action to alleviate the influx of immigrants and protect entire families from deportation.

Lupe leaders will prepare and send to the administration a series of recommendations that president Obama can make that will be beneficial to immigrant and mixed status families of the Rio Grande Valley.
