    Mayor John DeStefano Issues Response to U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Settlement

    (2/14/2012) Mayor John DeStefano Jr. today issued this statement in response to the recent settlement between 11 New Haven residents and U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.

    “Today’s settlement is bigger than a lawsuit. It is about who we are as a nation. Today’s settlement is a victory of law, but the real case yet to be tried is a matter of the character and temperament of this nation as it relates to immigration, and how we as a nation, a state, and a people view our legacy as a nation of immigrants. This case will never truly be won until our nation’s immigration policies live up to the values and aspirations on which our country was founded.”

    Any questions regarding the lawsuit and settlement should be directed to the parties involved in the suit.
