President’s Trump hardline approach and rhetoric of hate has no place in our state and country. This is not the way to unite a country. This is hate over love and community and justice. 

DENVER, CO- Colorado People’s Alliance (COPA) members are extremely concerned about executive actions made by President Trump that would greatly impact our immigrant community and separate families.

President Trump is jeopardizing the lives of immigrants. Our nation’s values were born out of welcoming families to build a better future and make our communities stronger together. With these actions he is destroying the lives of many undocumented Americans. He is catering to a small group of nativist in our country who do not speak for our nation. This is not the way to unite the country.

The majority of Americans strongly oppose mass deportations, building walls, and support immigration reform with a path to citizenship. Real, commonsense immigration reform is the solution. Instead of destroying millions of families by mass and senseless deportations, Trump should work across party lines to deliver commonsense immigration reform that allow immigrants a path to legalization.

Together with our immigrant families, we will stand strong against Trump and his administration’s attacks. We will never stop fighting for our immigrant community, we will march on the streets, we will take action to make sure our elected leaders and new president protect families and never target them. We will fight for justice and a Colorado that is welcoming to all regardless of background and/or immigration status.

La estrategia firme de Presidente Trump y su retorico de odio no tiene espacio en nuestro estado ni país. Eso no es la manera de unir el país. Eso es odio sobre amor y comunidad y justicia. 

DENVER, CO- Los miembros de la Alianza del Pueblo de Colorado (COPA) están preocupados acerca de las acciones ejecutivas de Presidente Trump que tendrán un gran impacto en nuestra comunidad de inmigrantes y separar las familias.

El President Trump está poniendo en peligro las vidas de inmigrantes. Los valores de nuestro país eran nacidos de extender el bienvenido a los inmigrantes para construir un futuro mejor y fortalecer nuestras comunidades juntas. Con estas acciones él está destruyendo las vidas de muchos americanos indocumentados. Él está sirviendo un grupo pequeño de extremistas que no hablan por nuestra comunidad. Eso no es la manera de unir el país.

La mayoría de americanos están opuestos a las deportaciones masivas, a la construcción de muros y apoyan la reforma migratoria con camino ciudanía. La reforma migratoria es la solución. En vez de destruir millones de familias por medio de deportaciones masivas, Trump debe trabajar con los dos partidos para pasar una reforma migratoria y dejar que los inmigrantes tienen un camino a la legalización.

Juntos con nuestras familias inmigrantes, estaremos juntos contra Trump y los ataques de su administración. Nunca dejaremos luchando por nuestra comunidad de inmigrantes, marcharemos en las calles, tomaremos acción para asegurar que nuestros líderes y el nuevo presidente protegerán familias y nunca las atacaran. Lucharemos por la justicia y un Colorado que le de la bienvenida a todos sin importar de donde son o su status migratorio.
