It was an honor for me to accept the Presidential Medal of Freedom on behalf of my late father, Former Congressman Edward R. Roybal. President Obama presented the award. My family and I are tremendously grateful for this recognition of my father, and this celebration of his accomplishments. Throughout his life, he never lost his passion for public service, and never lost sight of his responsibilities to the communities he represented and the country he loved. My father worked hard to improve the lives of Latinos and all Americans. By founding the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and the National Association of Latino Elected Officials, he played a pivotal role in uniting Latinos to give them a strong and powerful political voice. And he had a deep appreciation for the valuable role the federal government plays in supporting individuals and communities. That is why he fought to improve our nation’s health care and education systems, and why he spoke out for the rights of the downtrodden and disenfranchised. Again, my family and I thank President Obama for honoring our beloved father with the Medal of Freedom. We hope this recognition will inspire a new generation of young people to learn about our father’s life and legacy, and emulate his activist spirit and his belief in government’s power as a force for good.

President Obama’s executive action gives more than four million undocumented immigrants an opportunity to play by the rules and temporarily stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation. Now it’s time for Congressional Republicans to finish the job by passing bipartisan reforms that address the many #immigration challenges still facing our nation. #ImmigrationAction
