Don’t be fooled by the president’s bullying tactics. Today’s executive order does nothing to address his administration’s inhumanity. Trump abused immigrants from the very beginning. He attacked our DREAMers and our Muslim neighbors.
Then, in April, Jeff Sessions announced a “zero-tolerance” policy. He now prosecutes everyone crossing our Southern border undocumented. It is not illegal to seek asylum. Yet thousands of children have been ripped away from their parents and imprisoned.
Trump claims his executive order will end family separations. But it will not reunite the lost children with their families. Nor does it address the racist, cruel policies that brought us here. Families will be detained indefinitely.
It has come to this: little children in prison camps. We must act.
ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW
It’s time to take to the streets. Two actions are planned for San Francisco:
- On Saturday, June 23, join the #familiesbelongtogether rally at 10am at Justin Herman Plaza/Embarcardero SF.
- On Saturday, June 30, meet IndivisibleSF, Moveon.org, the Women’s March and many others in Mission Dolores Park at 10am to march to Civic Center at 11.
Keep calling your MOCs. Tell them to vote No on bad immigration bills. Sean Elsbernd of Dianne Feinstein’s office reminds us that the Senator uses our voices to make her case in Washington. If you can’t call, try Resistbot.
STAND UP SAN FRANCISCO GET OUT THE VOTE
We need more votes in Congress. We will be phone banking to get out the vote in November. Kathleen Murray has graciously agreed to lead our efforts. If you’re willing to open your house to SUSF members for two hours of phone banking, please let Kathleen know.
