The following are statements for Angelica Salas, executive director for CHIRLA.
Instead of investing millions of tax-payer dollars on a failed strategy, we call on President Trump to build bridges in Congress to introduce and pass fair and humane immigration reform.
Instead of separating and deporting immigrant families and signing executive orders which violate our constitution, we ask President Trump to assemble the brightest legal scholars, advocates, business owners, and US-born children of immigrant men and women and ask how the US can help best integrate them into American society.
Instead of more bricks, cement, lasers, moats, and barbed wired, we ask President Trump to help construct a new America where the actions of our leaders are in sync with the values, history, and vision of its people.
“… we ask President Trump to help construct a new America where the actions of our leaders are in sync with the values, history, and vision of its people.” I’m sorry, but as grandmother used to say when a grandchild asked for too much: “When pigs fly.”
