Unite Oregon unequivocally condemns President Donald Trump's recently-announced anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant executive orders as an assault on religious freedom and civil liberties, and a racist and unconstitutional attack on Muslims, immigrants, and refugees, who have been an original part of the vibrant fabric of the United States of America.
President Trump’s orders:
“These policies will not make us safer as a country, but rather they repeat the sad history of exclusion that colors America’s past,” said Unite Oregon’s Executive Director Kayse Jama, a U.S. citizen, originally from Somalia. “These actions are not only against the United States Constitution, but they also go against the American value of welcoming people escaping persecution.”
In 2015, anti-Muslim incidents spiked 67% and reach levels not seen since the 9/11 attacks, according to the FBI. But it is not just Muslims who are being targeted. In March 2016, a white Buddhist monk was attacked in Hood River and called a Muslim. Sikh Indian Americans have been assaulted and ridiculed at public events.
People of color--and especially immigrants, refugees, and Muslims--are particularly vulnerable right now. Trump’s actions seek to target a community that is already feeling fearful of their safety. Indeed, hours after Trump’s Muslim ban announcement, a mosque in Victoria, Texas was burned down.
Unite Oregon, joined by the One Oregon coalition, APANO, Causa, ACLU Oregon, Iraqi Society of Oreogn, Basic Rights Oregon, Jewish Voices for Peace, Jobs with Justice, Invisible Oregon, Oregon Coalition for Muslim Values, Oregon Muslim Citizen Alliance, and more, invites all people to show support for immigrants and refugees by attending a Noon rally downtown.
“No Ban, No Wall” Rally Monday, January 30th at Noon Terry Schrunk Plaza Downtown between 3rd and 4th Avenue on SW Madison
People from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, or Yemen who will arrive at Portland International Airport, or who have been detained already by Customs pursuant to President Trump’s executive order, are encouraged to reach out to the ACLU of Oregon at (971) 412-2258 or email@example.com to be connected with a local volunteer attorney.
Led by people of color, immigrants and refugees, rural communities, and people experiencing poverty, Unite Oregon works across the state to build a unified intercultural movement for justice.
