Following the Supreme Court’s tie vote halting President Obama’s immigration plan to safeguard millions from deportation, Congresswoman Suzan DelBene on Wednesday called on Congress to look for a more permanent solution.

OneAmerica, an immigrant-advocacy group, organized a roundtable discussion Wednesday at El Centro de la Raza in Beacon Hill, and featured DelBene along with Jorge Barón, executive director of the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project; Estela Ortega, executive director of El Centro de la Raza; and Jane Gonzalez and Andres Macedo, two people who could have benefitted from the high-court’s voting in favor of Obama’s executive order. The talk was moderated by Rich Stolz, executive director of OneAmerica.
