TODAY: Democrats Stand Against Trump’s Immigration Orders

Salt Lake City - House Democratic Representatives and Utah Latino Leaders Angela Romero, Rebecca Chavez-Houck and Mark Wheatley will stand with community activists, members of law enforcement, and others against recent orders by President Trump on immigration and refugee status. A press event will occur today at 1:00 pm outside the Salt Lake City Public Safety Building.

Before the event, Representative Romero stated, “This is unacceptable. This President is willfully ignorant of our country’s history and successes - all built by immigrants. Immigration is not the issue here. Racism is. We will not let this kind of hate pollute our state.”

More information on the press event, or on the Enriching Utah Coalition, can be found by contacting Mayra Cedano, (801) 487-4143, or Luis Garza, (801) 831-2378.
