COALITION FOR IMMIGRANT DIGNITY
COALITION FOR IMMIGRANT DIGNITY FORMS, ISSUES RESPONSE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ACTION ON IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT
Yesterday afternoon, President Trump announced two executive actions regarding immigration, including construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and several aggressive strategies to enforce our nation’s outmoded immigration laws. The orders are unworkable, irrational, and wrong.
These policies have one basic goal – fostering divisions harmful divisions among cities, among co-workers, among parishioners and neighbors. But the people of Greater Cincinnati will not be divided. Here in this town President Trump’s efforts will fail.
In our beloved community we remain devoted to unity – committed to basic human decency for all.
To celebrate this unity we have formed the Coalition for Immigrant Dignity, an alliance of labor, civil rights, faith, and charitable groups. Coalition members are employers and employees. We are clergy and parishioners, clients and social workers, students and teachers, vendors and clients, patients and care givers, parents and children, sons and daughters.
We are first generation, we are 12th generation, we are new arrivals – refugees, visa holders, and others patiently waiting for an opportunity to enter on the pathway to citizenship. We are citizens and immigrants together. We believe in one another.
30 years have now gone by since Washington D.C. leaders came together to craft comprehensive updates to the nation’s immigration laws. A generation’s worth of D.C. leaders have failed to deliver needed changes. With these executive orders, the nation’s collective failure is now occupying center stage.
All who oppose these orders are encouraged to join our local Coalition for Immigrant Dignity.
Our coalition brings thousands of men and women together, makes them members one of another. We will share with one another common tools for common goals. We will educate, advocate and organize to oppose unjust deportations, defend the DACA program, and prevent harassment and bullying in all forms. Our goals are goals for all America – and our enemies are the enemies of all progress. The two cannot be separated.
Join us at our next meeting. For more information email or
