Tell Mayor Betsy Price to Defy Trump, Defend Fort Worth, & Expand Sanctuary

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.

Why is this important?

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.

Reasons for signing

  • Support Kevin KL Johnson for city council Fort Worth District 8 Chris Nettles for Mayor. We have to support each other to change and rebuild what they damaged.
  • I believe that everyone has the right to be safe no matter and that no one should ever be afraid .
  • I signed up because I think that the mayor is making a mistake on agreeing with Donald Trump. I disagree with them because in state of Texas there is many immigrants . All those children only have their parents because there whole family is in another country. I also don't think that it is right for children to afraid everyday worrying if they are either going to be deported or that their family might.
