League Opposes Immigration Ban

The League is opposed to deportation of non-criminal undocumented immigrants.

The LWV supports cities, towns, counties and states that make a decision not to cooperate with federal deportation and enforcement actions that include non-criminal undocumented immigrants.  Moreover, the Trump Administration’s orders are of dubious legality. 

It is simply wrong, and a perversion of the American system of justice, for the Executive Branch to refuse to obey federal court orders.

The LWV is opposed to discrimination, including discrimination in immigration, based on religion.  The Trump Administration’s orders appear to be targeted at Muslims and immigrants from majority-Muslims nations.

We would like to remind all our members that we are faced with many challenges to our positions and the League is involved in serious efforts to address them.  Among these, we spent last weekend anticipating the issuance of an Executive Order investigating ‘voter fraud’.  We continue to monitor this situation and are ready to issue a statement if that occurs.  We also continue our efforts to lobby on ACA in Congress.  Everybody in the country is scrambling to keep up.
