LWVUS Call for Action: Don’t Deport Non-Criminal Undocumented Immigrants

Chris Carson, LWVUS President 2016-18

Chris Carson,
LWVUS President 2016-18

The League is opposed to deportation of non-criminal undocumented immigrants.

If you agree, you can call your member of Congress or Senators’s DC offices through 866-426-2631.  You can also call or send postcards or letters to their local district offices–or send email. Click for more contact info here.

The LWV supports cities, towns, counties and states that make a decision not to cooperate with federal deportation and enforcement actions that include non-criminal undocumented immigrants.  Moreover, the Trump Administration’s orders are of dubious legality. 

It is simply wrong, and a perversion of the American system of justice, for the Executive Branch to refuse to obey federal court orders.  

The LWV is opposed to discrimination, including discrimination in immigration, based on religion.  The Trump Administration’s orders appear to be targeted at Muslims and immigrants from majority-Muslims nations.

We would like to remind all our members that we are faced with many challenges to our positions and the League is involved in serious efforts to address them.
