THE FIGHT CONTINUES

The America we know protects the vulnerable and strengthens families. That is the America we continue to fight for. And it’s the America that is now threatened by the Trump administration’s senseless and draconian anti-immigrant policies.

While President Donald Trump has not moved to get rid of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) as he promised, the ugly anti-immigrant rhetoric of his campaign has resulted in reckless, un-American policies that target and demonize immigrants and all Latinos.

In just a few months, nearly 40% more individuals have been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, separating families and ripping communities apart.

The president has claimed he is only interested in removing undocumented immigrants with criminal records, but the reality is very different. Since he took office, more than twice as many people have been deported with no criminal convictions to speak of, as compared to the same period last year.

Trump’s slash-and-burn budget calls for increased spending on immigration enforcement, when the government already spends more on immigration enforcement than on all other federal law enforcement agencies combined. In fact, this administration has asked Congress for an additional $1.4 billion to detain and deport immigrants. 

Our country is stronger when we embrace our diversity. We will continue to advocate for the core values of our country and to protect and defend Latinos and immigrants so all can pursue opportunities to contribute fully to our nation.
