A statement by the Value Our Families coalition:
"Donald Trump is dead-set on cutting immigration by 50% in this country, and one way or another, he's putting into play how he'll reduce the number of immigrants, refugees, and people of color in this country.
"From the very beginning, Trump's wanted to slash family-based immigration and eliminate the Diversity Visa program, and dismantle the U.S. refugee resettlement program.
"We will not stand by and let Donald Trump abuse his power and use his agencies to shut out immigrants and refugees. We remain steadfast to protect family immigration, the U.S. as a safe place for refugees, and the deep values we share in who we want to—and should—be as a country.”
