Dear Mayor Walsh, we the undersigned demand that Boston be a safe haven for families who wish to remain together in a safe space. We demand that Boston continue honoring and celebrating immigrants and refugees in our beautiful and diverse city.
Why is this important?
This is so important because when we begin to do a blanket sweep of deportation, we are separating mothers from sons, daughters from fathers, spouse from spouse, siblings from siblings, grandparents from their precious grandchildren, and so on. Boston is a proud and inclusive city and we need to show that to the world by becoming a sanctuary city for immigrants and refugees.
