First victories for a sanctuary movement that keeps growing

Denver, CO – On Saturday afternoon, Ingrid Encalada, a 33-year-old undocumented mother of two U.S. citizen children, left the church where she was given refuge since last November after being granted a two-month stay of deportation allowing her to remain in the country.

“I will continue to organize until our full humanity, contributions and place in this country are recognized, all 11 million of us,” says Ingrid, who was eager to be back with her kids, especially her one year old son who needs ongoing medical treatment.

La firma del proyecto de ley antiinmigrante SB4 aumenta el temor entre las familias tejanas a una crisis económica, mayor discriminación racial y una masiva separación de familias

Washington, D.C. - Mientras muchas familias cenaban o se alistaban para dormir el pasado domingo, el gobernador de Texas, Greg Abbott, firmó el proyecto de ley 4 del Senado, una de las peores leyes antiinmigrantes en el país desde que el gobierno de Arizona aprobara la ley SB1070 en 2010, conocida como la ley de "muéstreme sus papeles".

As Mother’s Day approaches, the signing of anti-immigrant bill SB4 is causing fear among Texan families and communities of color who could face economic crisis, increased racial profiling, and mass deportations

Washington, D.C. - In a cowardly move on Sunday evening, while many families were having dinner or putting their kids to bed, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed Senate Bill 4 into law, one of the worst anti-immigrant laws in the country since Arizona’s “show me your papers” law in 2010. The law punishes communities that have limited their participation in immigration enforcement by forcing local law enforcement to cooperate with federal immigration authorities as they operationalize Trump’s mass deportation policies.

Washington, DC -- We Belong Together, a campaign of women for humane immigration policies that protect the freedom of women and families to live in safety, decries Trump’s newest executive order, in which he re-writes his previously issued refugee and Muslim ban. In an attempt to avoid the legal challenges faced by his travel ban in January, this latest executive order tries to re-do what has already been found in courts to be unconstitutional and discriminatory: target refugees, who are mainly women and children fleeing violence and persecution, and without factual basis, branding individuals from six Muslim countries as national security threats. This executive order comes at the heels of announcements over the weekend that Trump is considering adopting a policy to separate Central American mothers seeking refuge in the United States from their children.
