• Tell Mayor Jean M. Robb to Defy Trump, Defend Deerfield Beach, & Expand Sanctuary
    Donald Trump just announced executive action that threatens any city that seeks to protect immigrant residents from his deportation machine. What he’s trying to do is roll back the leaps forward we’ve made in recent years but we won’t let him. In 2017, it’s the efforts to defend Black lives and protect migrant rights that make our cities safer, not Trump’s extra enforcement promises. To keep us safe, we need to evolve our local policies to make our cities real sanctuaries for all residents, not cancel them because of the illegitimate President's latest actions. That means a commitment to separating police from federal immigration enforcement AND addressing the policing that funnels Black and other residents to jail and places criminal charges on immigrant residents, making them a target for ICE agents. Tell our mayor and city council to stand up to Trump and take action that doesn't just symbolically defend immigrants, but transforms our city's policies to stop targeting us for imprisonment, risk of removal, and state violence at the hands of police and aggressive immigration agents. The illegitimate President's threats should be cause to embolden our city leaders, not an excuse to abandon our potential progress.

  • Declare Belmont a Sanctuary City to Protect Our Vulnerable Residents
    Donald Trump signed executive orders that threaten Belmont residents with dramatic increase in efforts to detain and deport undocumented immigrants. It puts a violent criminal on the same level as a Belmont parent of US citizen children who works and contributes to our community and who now lives in a heightened state of fear of deportation and destruction of family. To keep us safe, we must evolve our local policies to make Belmont a sanctuary for all our residents, no matter what the outcome of the legal battle that has ensued. As a Sanctuary City, Belmont would be prohibited from using any funds or resources to assist in the enforcement of federal immigration law or from gathering or disseminating information about the immigration status of its community members. Immigration enforcement is not the responsibility of municipalities. Belmont has bigger public safety priorities and too few resources to take on immigration enforcement. More importantly, cracking down on undocumented residents undermines Belmont's community relations, funnels resources away from important local services, and motivates residents to fear cooperation with crime prevention efforts, which makes all Belmont citizens less safe. We must join model Sanctuary Cities, including San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, Berkeley, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Boston, and Washington, D.C. in a commitment to clear sanctuary policies, even in the face of federal threats to cut funding. The President's threats to our Belmont community must embolden our city leaders, not be an excuse to abandon our progress in creating a thriving, safe community for all of our residents. We must proudly and boldly make Belmont a Sanctuary City.

  • Tell Morgantown Mayor Shamberger and West Virginia University: Defend Morgantown & Expand Sanctuary
    Donald Trump announced executive action on January 25th that threatens cities seeking to protect immigrant residents from deportation. The order issued on Wednesday claims sanctuary cities--jurisdictions that choose not to cooperate with federal efforts to deport undocumented immigrants--“willfully violate federal law” causing “immeasurable harm to the American people.” This action works to force compliance with federal immigration agencies in a bid to ramp up deportations. On January 27th, President Trump overhauled US refugee policy banning all immigrants and visa holders from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the US for 90 days. It also bans all refugee admissions for 120 days — and bans Syrian refugees indefinitely. Limiting access to the United States from those fleeing from safety--from Central and South America to the Middle East--is a humanitarian responsibility. America is turning its back on the rest of the world; we have to rally against it. In 2017, it’s the efforts to defend Black lives and protect migrant rights that make our cities safer, not President Trump’s extra enforcement promises. To keep us safe, we need to evolve our local policies to make our city a real sanctuary for all residents--not cancel them because of the President's latest actions. This means a commitment to separating police from federal immigration enforcement AND addressing the policing that funnels Black and other residents to jail and places criminal charges on immigrant residents, making them a target for ICE agents. Join me in telling Mayor Marti Shamberger and the Morgantown City Council to stand up to President Trump and take action that doesn't just symbolically defend immigrants, but transforms our city's policies to stop targeting residents for imprisonment, risk of removal, and state violence at the hands of police and aggressive immigration agents. The President's threats should be cause to embolden our city and university leaders, students, and residents, not an excuse to abandon our potential progress.
