Recent Actions against Immigration & Refugee Ban

1/27/17  New Jersey Sanctuary City Mayors (Newark, East Orange, and Maplewood) declared at a press conference they would not back down from their Sanctuary City status and would continue to protect ALL its residents.

The next day was the Saturday vigil at the Hudson Correctional Facility to remember Haitian immigrants held in detention (see press coverage here). Later that same night, hundreds gathered at the Newark Airport to welcome refugees and protest Trump’s ban.

Then on Sunday HUNDREDS more gathered at the Elizabeth Detention Center to protest the ban and call for support for refugees and immigrants. Senator Cory Booker joined the raucous rally.
