As rumors swirl that President Donald Trump may undo several immigration policies created by the Obama Administration, today, January 23 at 3pm, Senate Minority Leader Schumer, Sen. Cortez Masto (D-NV), Greisa Martinez of United We Dream; Rev. Jennifer Butler of Faith in Public Life; Angela Maria Kelley of Center for American Progress Action Fund; Juan Escalante, a DACA beneficiary with America’s Voice; and Omar Al-Muqdad, a Syrian refugee and journalist will gather to give their reactions.
Earlier this month, through marches, vigils, rallies, and gatherings, immigrants and allies in over 70 cities showed Trump, Republicans in Congress, and the rest of the country that they are here to stay. Regardless of rumors, trial balloons, threats, and mass deportation plans, the immigrant and refugee communities and their allies will continue to work for an America that is inclusive and welcoming to all.
