NLC statement on President Trump's executive actions targeting refugees and Muslims
The executive actions banning refugees and Muslims by President Trump is an attack on the foundation of what we stand for as Americans. We are a nation of immigrants built on principles of freedom, and President Trump’s ban is nothing more than blatant discrimination. We must refuse to sit silently.
Join us in calling Congressional leaders to step up and condemn this hateful act. Call your Members of Congress and Senators now to demand action against this attack on American principles and values.
After you’ve made phone calls, rally at airports and the offices of elected officials. Post stories on social media. Encourage others to do the same.
Do not be silent. Stand up and speak out.
