Today, Congressman Xavier Becerra (CA-34), Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, released the following statement marking the one-year anniversary of the Obama administration's announcement to grant deferred action to DREAM-eligible youth:

"One year ago, I applauded President Obama for not only showing his support for immigration reform in words, but with action. As of today, more than 365,000 young immigrants have been granted relief from deportation under this administration's deferred action policy. Those courageous and aspiring individuals can now begin to work towards the American Dream as they await a more permanent solution in the form of comprehensive immigration reform."
