Amnesty International USA Release
Today President Donald Trump issued several executive orders related to immigration, including constructing a wall on the border with Mexico, building more detention centers, and stripping sanctuary cities of federal funding.
“We will fight this dangerous move with everything we’ve got,” said Margaret Huang, executive director of Amnesty International USA. “This wall would say that those from outside the United States, especially from Latin America, are to be feared and shunned – and that is just wrong.”
“Our members and supporters will demand that Congress protect people seeking asylum, including those fleeing violence in Latin America. We won’t let President Donald Trump create refugee camps along the U.S./Mexico border like the ones we’ve seen in Greece, Australia, and other countries.”
