Many of us are watching in terror as Donald Trump continues to separate these United States. We have boasted that we are a melting pot, but with the stroke of his pen, this man, elected by the electoral college, not the popular vote, shows that he never took pride in the multicultural, multi-ethnic fabric of the US. He has proven that he doesn’t respect the rich history of immigrants in this country and that he will stop at nothing to destroy the very fiber of what made America great – – before he decided that it wasn’t.
He has now put a halt to the refugee resettlement program, and families stand to be torn apart, reminiscent of the days of the Native American Holocaust, African Enslavement and Japanese Internment that took place in the United States. Those with a heart for humanity must do all we can to stop or at least hinder this inhumane action. We must not allow a Muslim or a Latino Repression to be added to the list of heinous wrongdoings in this country, particularly when religious freedom is one of the very values on which the country was founded.
This Tri-County Rapid Response Team, a sub-committee of Mt. Olive Multicultural, will organize to protest, provide transportation, food, clothing, temporary shelter, and emergency funding for victims of this new order.
Please join us for an information session and/or to volunteer.
