Letter to President Trump Regarding Immigration

February 1, 2017

President Donald Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20500

Dear President Trump,

The Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York (WBASNY) is deeply concerned by your recent Executive Orders (EOs) relating to immigration. These EOs compose a series of policies purportedly intended to enhance border security and interior safety, and protect us from terrorism. However, rather than making the United States safer, these policies flaunt fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution, disregard the contributions that immigrants make to our communities, and disregard our humanitarian obligations to protect those fleeing persecution in their home countries.
WBASNY strongly condemns these Executive Orders and calls on you to retract these harsh policies immediately.

Respectfully submitted,

Jacqueline P. Flug
President, WBASNY
