JANUARY 31—

The League of Women Voters of the United States reiterated its longstanding national position on immigration.

League is opposed to deportation of non-criminal undocumented immigrants.

ImmigrationThe LWV supports cities, towns, counties and states that make a decision not to cooperate with federal deportation and enforcement actions that include non-criminal undocumented immigrants.Moreover, it is of dubious legality.

Chris Carson, LWVUS president stated, “It is simply wrong, and a perversion of the American system of justice, for the Executive Branch to refuse to obey federal court orders.”

The LWV is opposed to discrimination, including discrimination in immigration, based on religion. “The Trump Administration’s orders appear to be targeted at Muslims and immigrants from majority-Muslims nations.” said Carson.
