The Judge Not Initiative
Donald Trump has promised the mass deportation of millions of undocumented immigrants without regard for how long they have lived in our country, the contributions they have made to our society, or whether they have children that are American citizens. Trump’s plan will lead to people being sent back to countries that they were too young to remember living in, where they don’t know the language or the culture. Trump’s plan will lead to millions of people, citizens and undocumented immigrants alike, being questioned by law enforcement because of their apparent race or ethnicity. Trump’s plan would unconstitutionally strip American citizenship from millions of children who have undocumented parents.
The Judge Not Initiative will protect people from Trump’s mass deportation plan by promoting efforts among religious leaders of every faith that are dedicated to defending people from Trump’s unjust and dehumanizing mass deportation plan.
