Statement on Muslim Ban
Position Statement on Muslim Ban
Forward Kenosha denounces President Trump’s executive order banning immigrants from seven countries as an act of bigotry. We stand with Senator Tammy Baldwin, the Democratic Party and many Republicans who categorize this as both unconstitutional and unAmerican.
As a nation of refugees, we do not judge people by their religion. Our nation has long been the world’s beacon of hope and opportunity. The inscription on the Statue of Liberty proclaims, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest - tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
Forward Kenosha's mission is to ensure the dignity, inclusion, equality, safety, and respect of every person in our community. We stand in solidarity with Lady Liberty, immigrants, and refugees.
