NorCal Fil-Ams create network to oppose Trump’s anti-immigrant policies and actions

Kababayans are coming together to defend the rights of Filipinos and other immigrant groups, against what they call divisive and oppressive policies and actions of the Trump administration.

Representatives from more than 15 organizations launched Filipinos United Against Trump in San Bruno, California yesterday.

They say they will fight back against the Trump administration’s efforts to tear families apart, cut social services, and prevent workers from having a safe working environment.

“To show that that there is a strong voice across organizations and individuals across the bay area, to protect our rights and communities,” said Aurora Victoria David, from Filipinos United Against Trump. “To show that there are organizations out there, that people can reach out to for help, and that there is a network that they can get involved in if they want to help other kababayans as well.”

Members of Filipinos United Against Trump have identified immigration, labor, gender justice, environmental justice, self-determination and education as the issues they want addressed by the government.

They also plan to coordinate efforts across the Bay Area, to launch lawyers training and workshops and educate the community about their rights.

    Hey dummy when did president Trump put Philippines with the 6 country on “TRAVEL BAN.” You all is out of line. Look think before saying and doing dumb things to president Trump. All of you should be “DEPORTED OUT OF AMERICA.” You Filipinos is dumb. Get some education before saying anything about of president Trump.
