In the past week, Trump signed three immigration-related executive orders that aim to fundamentally change the open character of our nation, contrary to the values on which this country was founded.
TODAY, February 3 at 12:30pm ET/9:30am PT, legal experts and immigration and refugee advocates will update reporters on the status of these immigration, refugee, and Muslim restrictions, as well as litigation to combat them and the response from communities across the nation.
Also happening tomorrow: civil rights, faith groups, immigrant rights leaders, and community activists and leaders will gather in a nationwide day of Muslim solidarity events to respond to Trump’s slew of unconstitutional, dangerous, and unconscionable Executive Orders targeting refugees and immigrants. See the list of events here.
