The 2016 presidential campaign made visible the deep and painful divisions in our nation, and the election outcome has left many immigrants and refugees—and second- and third-generation U.S. citizens—living in uncertainty and fear. Hate-based incidents from bullying to violence are on the rise, and President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to deport millions of unauthorized immigrants, cancel Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), suspend refugee resettlement from “terror-prone” countries, and block remittances as part of his border wall plan. These policies, several of which are planned for the first 100 days in office, could have a devastating impact on our economy, tear apart families, and radically reshape our communities as well as America’s position in the world.
