Solidarity Message from the Mayor Sam Liccardo

"Recent events have left many thousands of our San José residents -- about forty percent of whom were born in a foreign country -- in fear. Some of our neighbors, friends, and family fear changes in immigration rules or enforcement that could separate their families. Others voice concerns about proposed federal "registries" of community members of the Muslim faith. Still others point to the nationwide spike in "hate crimes" in recent days...We've got your back."  

Full message in English available.

 


Mensaje de Solidaridad del Alcalde Sam Liccardo
“Los hechos recientes han dejado a miles de nuestros residentes de San José -- alrededor del cuarenta por ciento de los cuales nacieron en un país extranjero -- con miedo. Algunos de nuestros vecinos, amigos y familiares temen los cambios en las reglas de inmigración que podrían separar a sus familias. Otros expresan preocupación acerca del proyecto federal de "registros" de los miembros de la comunidad de la fe musulmana. Otros señalan el aumento de los "crímenes de odio" a nivel nacional en los últimos días…Los vamos a respaldar.”
