In reaction to the current administration’s decision to end the DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), the entire Wu Yee community stands in support of its immigrant families. Immigrants make our communities and our country stronger. Our community promotes diversity and stands for inclusion.
Wu Yee echoes Dean Ito Taylor’s words, Executive Director of Asian Pacific Islander Legal Outreach. “The proposed legislation targets families by cutting our ability to bring siblings, adult children, or parents. This will really hurt our ability to bring our families together.”
Now, more than ever, we need to stand united for the cause of creating opportunities for children to be healthy, for families to thrive and for communities to be strong.
If you or someone you know wants to act on behalf of immigrant families, please call Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan at 213-335-2244, and Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell at 855-336-0788 and tell them DACA must be reinstated to protect immigrant youth and families.
In San Francisco there are many resources for immigrants. Please don’t hesitate to contact them if you have questions or need information.
