Yesterday, President Trump in a divisive State of the Union Address further demonizing immigrants, unveiled a framework on immigration reform and border security that holds citizenship for DACA recipients hostage in exchange for increased enforcement (including a campaign to deport visa overstays) and $25 billion to expand and reinforce the wall between the U.S. and Mexico. He hopes to cut legal immigration in half by ending some family visas and ending the visa lottery system.

Meanwhile, the Administration has increased its fear mongering and retaliation against sanctuary cities, targeting them with threats of and actual increased ICE raids.

Filipino Advocates for Justice stands with immigrant and refugee communities. We must join the larger social justice and immigrant rights resistance to the Administration’s racist direction.  [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” el_class=”hide_on_mobiles” z_index=”” css=”.vc_custom_1512175811219{margin-bottom: -25px !important;padding-top: 25px !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1517519679477{margin-top: -5px !important;padding-left: 150px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”17497″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=”” css=”.vc_custom_1517533372487{margin-left: -135px !important;padding-top: 100px !important;padding-bottom: 150px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” background_color=”#ff9900″ el_class=”hide_on_mobiles” z_index=”” css=”.vc_custom_1517523154514{margin-top: -150px !important;}”][vc_column width=”2/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1517538868781{padding-left: 190px !important;}”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1517591363351{margin-top: 100px !important;padding-right: 120px !important;}”]Threat of ICE raids in Northern CA
