[February 1, 2017 Letter to the Secretary of Homeland Security of the Department of Homeland Security John F. Kelly]   [open pdf - 542KB]

From the Letter: "We write to strongly condemn the President's executive order issued January 27, 2017, titled 'Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States,' and the ensuing actions taken by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its agencies, in particular Customs and Border Protection (CBP), to implement the order, and to request an urgent briefing regarding the same. We hope you will urge the President to immediately rescind the Executive Order, which has created profound chaos and fear among refugees and immigrants who have been admitted to the United States, as well as their families. As a nation of immigrants that has been a refuge for people fleeing persecution from around the world, these actions are contrary to who we are as a nation."
