Undocumented Immigrants like myself are under attack.

President-elect Trump has already said that in the first 100 days of office he would cancel DACA, a program that provides undocumented youth with work permits & protection from deportation, and begin deporting 2 million undocumented immigrants. But we can change this if we pressure mayors to declare their cities as sanctuaries of safety.

Tell U.S. Mayors: Protect Undocumented Immigrants - Declare Your City a Sanctuary of Safety! The petition has received over 100,000 signatures already!

ThatÕs why weÕre re-launching our #HereToStay campaign to demand that mayors across the country stand with their undocumented immigrant residents in this moment of crisis. Trump has said he will deport millions and bullying is already out of control. It is time to declare AmericaÕs cities as sanctuaries of safety and not allow local police to do the work of immigration agents.

In a sanctuary city, officials implement policies to restrict local police from turning immigrants over to federal immigration agents and declare in no uncertain terms that immigrants are welcome. Without them, undocumented immigrants like me and my family are left vulnerable to racial profiling, detention and deportation.

Tell U.S. Mayors: Protect Undocumented Immigrants - Declare Your City a Sanctuary of Safety!

A special shout out to the mayors of Seattle, San Jose, San Francisco and Oakland who have been quick to stand with their undocumented residents.

 

This is just the beginning - we can make our cities and states safe for all!

Let's do this!
