Garden Grove – 1.25.17

Today, President Trump issued executive orders on immigration that go against American values and will further harm immigrants who contribute to our communities in myriad ways. OCCORD is gravely concerned in President Trump’s decision that realizes his xenophobic rhetoric into policies.

“We reject the anti-immigrant vitrol that goes against traditional American values of welcoming immigrants,” said Shakeel Syed, Executive Director of OCCORD.

We stand by all immigrants and remain deeply committed to helping even more lawful permanent residents on the path to citizenship to protect them against deportation and anti-immigrant sentiment. In the weeks, months and years ahead, we will continue our important immigration work and stand with all immigrants when we see their rights – and the values of our country – threatened.

We are pleased to announce our citizenship fair on Saturday Feb 25th and March 18th which will be one of several events this year. OCCORD is committed to advancing the virtue of embracing every-one versus the vice of hate, bigotry, racism and xenophobia.

    More fake news.

    Polls indicate the majority of Americans support Trump’s latest executive orders on immigration.

    Since when is protecting US citizens by enforcing our immigration laws and keeping terrorists out of the country antithetical to American values , Mr. Syed?

    Protest fake news!

      No, we don’t support his executive orders. I don’t support his breakfast order. His attempts to discriminate based on religion and race is unconstitutional and un-American. Impeach, resist!

      What “terrorists” is trump keeping out? If he was so interested in keeping America safe from countries that export terrorism Saudi Arabia would’ve been #1 on that list. But trump has business dealings with the Saudi’s, so never mind about that whole “keeping America safe” BS. It’s all about throwing red-meat to his racist, hate-filled base.
      Gotta keep the deplorable’s happy (and fooled), lol.

        Obama was the one who designated those 7 nations as terrorist threats. Not Trump. Trump acted on Obama’s policies and did something about it and thereby helped to keep America safe.

        Why don’t you sponsor a Syrian family – and let them live in your home and pay all their expenses if you feel so strongly about it??? 🙂

          No, Obama didn’t issue the ban on those nations, only little trump did. What a bunch of sissies you trump supporters are, trying to blame trump’s follies on Obama. Man-up and own the racism, you love it … until you’re exposed, lol.

          • LFOldTimer

            You’re the one who claimed illegal immigration is a racial issue – and that all illegals are brown. Now that’s racist to the bone!

            I’ve always contended that illegal immigration is a national issue. Canada is a nation. Mexico is a nation. China is a nation. America is a nation – not a race.


            You’ve exposed yourself again.

          • justanon

            Yeah, then why a wall on our Mexican border, I’ve already given you proof that “illegal” immigration from Mexico is negative?
            Yet you little trumpsters still wet-your-pants in excitement over a wall with Mexico, hmmm why is that?

            Still dodging trump’s Muslim ban, it’s not “like Obama’s” is it?

            But I won’t wait for an admission of any error from a trump supporter because just like him you lie, deny, deflect and lie some more … anything to avoid the truth.
            I used to wonder how Hitler ever came to power, but now I understand, as I watch you suckers blindly embracing authoritarianism all because … you hate.

    One of the American Values that Trump didn’t adhere to was “don’t KNOCK UP some Bimbo while married”, but you know what Trump says “grab all the p—y you can?

    • Jacki Livingston

      Trump wouldn’t know true American values if they came up and knocked him up the side of his ugly orange head. I have never wanted to hit anyone in the nuts more in my entire life.
