Today, the Supreme Court blocked the Trump administration’s attempt to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). While the decision was made on procedural grounds and not on the merits of the program, it nevertheless provides a reprieve for 650,000 immigrants and their families, including more than 250,000 U.S.-citizen children.
Justice. Belonging. Humanity. Courage. Solidarity. Grounded in these values that drive our mission, GCIR condemns racism and racial terror. We condemn the racism and racial terror that have oppressed and brutalized African Americans for more than 400 years.
This year’s Juneteenth celebration comes amidst a painful moment of reckoning for our country with a legacy of anti-Black racism that continues to permeate our society. While the shocking and abhorrent deaths of Black men, women, and children at the hands of law enforcement may be the most visceral examples of racial inequity, we know the challenges go far deeper. Today we stand in steadfast solidarity with Black-led organizations working to combat anti-Black racism.
