Late Thursday, President Trump signed an executive order allowing states and local municipalities to ban refugees and set the refugee admissions number to the lowest in history, effectively putting out Lady Liberty’s torch.
We will gather at a candlelight vigil at the Governor’s Mansion to protest the administration’s destruction of the U.S. refugee resettlement program and asylum system Monday evening.
We need Governor Cooper to demonstrate his support for refugee resettlement and declare that our state will continue to support this life-saving program that brings immense value to our communities.
Join us to demand that Congress stop these attacks on vulnerable people seeking safety and demonstrate our support to return refugee resettlement to historic norms.
