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.
Why is this important?
Donald Trump just announced executive action that threatens any city that seeks to protect immigrant residents from deportation.
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.
We need to evolve our local policies to make our cities real sanctuaries for all residents, not cancel them because of the 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.
