In his first days in office, President Trump signed two executive orders affecting immigrants.

The first, Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States, aims to dramatically increase detention and deportation (prioritizing non-citizens who have been involved in the criminal justice system in any way) and proposes defunding sanctuary jurisdictions. The second, Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements, aims to build a wall along the Mexican border, increase detention at the border (specifically including detaining asylum seekers), and gather information on federal aid and other assistance to Mexico.

This document provides talking points on how to address each of these in your communities.
