CAUSA Rally In Portland At Noon TOMORROW (Monday)

Causa unequivocally condemns President Trump's series of anti-immigrant, anti-refugee, and anti-Muslim executive orders. These orders are an assault on civil liberties and religious freedoms, and are an unconstitutional attack on immigrants, refugees,and Muslims who have been a vital part of the fabric of the United States.

President Trump’s orders seek to:

•  Approve the construction of a massive wall along the US-Mexico border with deficit funding;
•  Require local law enforcement collaboration with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) undermining local efforts to ensure trust in public safety;
•  Punitively subject anyone “facilitating the presence of” undocumented immigrants to a $1,500 fine or 6 months in jail;
•  Do away with previous enforcement priorities (including consideration of humanitarian factors) and instead makes an enforcement priority of any “removable” immigrant convicted or suspected of any criminal offense – gutting the presumption of innocence enshrined in our Constitution.
•    Establish a racist ban on the admission of immigrants from 7 majority-Muslim countries: Libya, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, and Sudan; and
•    Unconstitutionally deny legal permanent residents (“green card holders”) from the 7 above countries re-entry, dividing and harming children and families.

“None of these executive orders are a real solution to our nation’s broken immigration system, and they won’t make us safer.  Rather, they will waste limited taxpayer resources to militarize our borders, tear families apart, and breed a climate of fear and hate,” said Andrea Williams, Causa’s Executive Director.

Our message is clear. Immigrants and refugees make America vibrant, strong, and prosperous.
 Will you join us in supporting Oregon’s immigrant and refugee communities by attending tomorrow’s action?
