Ohio Immigrant Groups Denounce SUPCUS' Immigration Ruling

Some Ohio immigrants and their supporters are joining others around the country denouncing the U.S. Supreme Court's new ruling on immigration policy. It upholds a federal appeals court decision to block President Obama's executive actions on immigration.  The president's Deferred-Action plan offered temporary protection to families with mixed immigration status and immigrants who arrived as children.  Jose Cabrerra of the Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center in Cincinnati attends Xavier university and participates in the plan.  He says hopes are now dashed in the immigrant community.

Center director Allison Reynolds Berry says work will continue to keep families together and support the immigrant community.


Ohio's Republican Attorney General is one of more than two dozen AGs that challenged the Democratic president's plan.

A native of Chicago, naturalized citizen of Cincinnati and resident of Columbus, Alison attended Earlham College and the Ohio State University. She has equal passion for Midwest history, hockey and Slavic poetry.
