That is not California.
DEPORTING OUR VIETNAMESE NEIGHBORS? THAT'S NOT AMERICA.
The Trump administration's recent reinterpretation of an agreement between the United States and Vietnam puts over 7,000 refugees at risk. Most fled to the United States during the Vietnam War seeking a better life. Their contributions have made America a better nation.
Orange County, alone is home to more than 180,000 Vietnamese-Americans. Our Vietnamese neighbors who escaped Communism, tyranny, and death are an important part of the fabric of California.
State and local leaders have raised their voices to put a stop to this alarming announcement and New Way California stood with them against this shameful decision.
BORDER CRISIS? WHAT BORDER CRISIS?
In San Ysidro, CA, home to one of the busiest border crossings in the world, the land south of the border is not equated with lawlessness and evil, but with family, friends and affordable healthcare. A poll conducted by the San Diego Union-Tribune found that only 34% of Californians were in favor of the wall.
Meanwhile, Washington’s refusal to compromise on funding the wall is prolonging the government shutdown, leaving local federal employees and monuments vulnerable. At the core of our mission, we want to remove politics from governing. From our perspective, the government shut down is pure political theater and we deserve better.
FAMILIES TORN APART
Yet, there are still more than 10,000 migrant minors still in HHS shelters — 50% more than there were at the same time last year.
