Democratic Municipal Officials’ (DMO) President Mayor Cindy Lerner (Pinecrest, FL) and the Board of Democratic Municipal Officials passed a resolution Friday supporting President Obama’s recent Executive Action on immigration.

The DMO Board of Directors gathered in Austin, Texas at National League of Cities (NLC) Congress of Cities and Exposition. Following the conclusion of the biannual DMO National Breakfast Meeting, the Board convened to discuss the Association’s strategic goals and policy. The Board of Directors approved a resolution in support of the President’s announcement to increase border security, prioritize deportation of felons over otherwise lawful undocumented workers, and provide a three year moratorium on deportation for individuals who pass a background check and agree to pay taxes. An estimated five million undocumented immigrants could be affected by the Immigration Accountability Executive Action.
