CHRGJ Response to Executive Orders on Immigration and Other Human Rights Matters
The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice is a community of scholars, educators, journalists, advocates, and students from more than twenty countries around the world, united by a commitment to apply our skills towards a more humane and just world. On Friday, January 27, 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump put those shared values at risk by issuing an Executive Order that halted the admission of all refugees and of immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries. The Center strongly condemns this order as a violation of international and domestic laws. Read our full statement condemning this and other recent harmful measures proposed by President Trump.
