The San Diego Union-Tribune: Trump to sign executive orders enabling construction of border wall and targeting sanctuary cities
PANA's executive director Ramla Sahid was quoted by by The San Diego Union-Tribune in the article "Trump to sign executive orders enabling construction of border wall and targeting sanctuary cities", published on Jan 24, 2017 by Jerry Markon, Robert Costa, Abigail Hauslohner.
Ramla Sahid, executive director of the San Diego-based Partnership for the Advancement of New Americans, said the U.S. should continue to welcome refugees.
“I can’t fathom the loss and sadness families must be feeling who are separated from loved ones in refugee camps and urban centers and who now will have no hope of seeing them again,” said Sahid, whose group advocates for inclusion of refugees. “Our work will be difficult but we must resist. We have to fight this and any effort to turn our backs on human beings at a time when they are most in need of safety and welcome.”
