Immigration: Focus Locally
In these days of Trump and the Republicans attacking everything decent about America, it’s too easy to focus on the immediate threat. Trump’s Muslim band is back, but everyone is paying attention to the Republicans trying to steal our healthcare. The ACLU is important, but it can’t do everything. While they’re working on the big public cases, the stormtroopers in the ICE are still abducting people. If we want to help as many people as possible and handicap the Republicans, we should start small and work our way up.
The Immigration Advocates Network has a directory of local advocates by state. It also offers videos, web seminars, and news updates. Even if you can’t do too much, just do what you can.
