AYF-WUS Call to Action and Statement on Immigration Ban

On January 27, 2017 President Donald Trump issued an executive order to temporarily ban citizens of seven predominantly Muslim nations from entering the United States. The Armenian Youth Federation - Western United States is driven to action due to its profound concern over the Administration’s order to pose new, extreme obstacles in the path of refugees and asylum seekers. We strongly condemn this order and call all to action against any effort to wrongly qualify refugees solely based on their faith or country of origin. As descendants of Armenian immigrants who were fortunate enough to have been admitted into this country -- many from the very Middle Eastern nations targeted by this ban -- we believe that everyone should have the right to the same opportunities.
