In a video message, Gold Star father Khizr Khan condemned Donald Trump’s actions against immigrants, refugees, and Muslims, and encouraged all Americans to call their members of Congress and ask them to take a stand against the President’s attacks.
“I want to remind everyone why we migrated to this country,” Mr. Khan said. “We migrated because of its values of pluralism, of equal dignity, of equal protection.”
“This country and it’s values remain a beacon of hope,” he continued, “not only for ourselves, but for the rest of the world. The rest of the world emulates our democracy.”
Mr. Khan message to Americans comes following a press call with two US Army veterans, Congressman Ruben Gallego of Arizona, and Dreamer Sergeant Oscar Vasquez.
During this call, Mr. Khan called Trump’s executive orders “nothing but intimidation tactics, aimed at dehumanizing our people, dehumanizing the U.S. and other people of the world.”
In his video message, Mr. Khan asks all who believe in the core values of America to contact their Representative and to “tell them what you stand for, tell them we stand for the values of this country, and we want them to launch a defense against this barrage of attacks against our values.”
“We are, by the blessings that we continue to receive by these values, are obligated to defend them.” Find your member of Congress using this tool and make your call today.
