Washington, DC – The League of Women Voters president, Chris Carson, issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s immigration ban:

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

The League 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.”

On “Voter Fraud”

The League of Women Voters president, Chris Carson, issued the following statement in response to the unsubstantiated claim from the White House that millions of illegal votes were cast in the past election:

“President Trump is calling for a major investigation into voter fraud – in an election that he won! We know that wide-spread voter fraud is a myth perpetuated to push election laws that restrict voting.  We cannot allow false claims to drive policies that will limit participation in our election process. There is no need for an investigation into a non-existent problem. The issue has been studied and put to rest.”
