Immigration Update III by Vicky Steinitz

Poor Peoples United Fund Newsletter,, Fall 2019:  The endless stream of Trump administration attacks on immigrants continues. The targets of these cruel proposals are invariably among the most vulnerable: victims of domestic or gang violence applying for asylum, severely ill foreigners here for medical treatment, DACA children who have grown up in the United States and know no other home. At the same time though, efforts to halt these hateful moves and to accompany and advocate for our immigrant neighbors are growing in number and intensity.

In August of 2005, Cindy set up a peace camp just yards from then president George Bush’s Crawford ranch to ask him, “for what noble cause” people were dying in Iraq and Afghanistan. She never got her answer, but thousands came to Crawford to join her and tens of thousands did solidarity actions all over the world.
