Petition to San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer

Mayor Faulconer must make San Diego a Sanctuary for Immigrants and Refugees.

While San Diego has the busiest border crossing in the world and has one of the largest immigrant and refugee populations in the country, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer has taken no action to protect immigrants against Trump's policies. This petition applies to San Diegans and Californians as Faulconer is bidding for Governor of California in 2018.  He ran his mayoral campaign around rhetoric of "filling potholes, picking up the garbage and probably most importantly paving your streets."  Let's face it, with San Diego's wonderful lifestyle, most San Diegans have not felt a need to pay close attention to local government officials.  However, Trump's federal policies are now directly threatening many San Diegans and we need strong leadership at the City, County and State level to protect the San Diegan and Californian way of life.    --We are demanding that Mayor Faulconer takes indisputable action to make San Diego a sanctuary for immigrants and refugees. --We are demanding that Mayor Faulconer endorses SB 54, the California Values Act, which would prevent state and local law enforcement from collaborating with federal immigration authorities. --We are warning Mayor Faulconer that if he takes a soft stance on protecting the hard working immigrants and refugees that live in his own city, he will have no political future in San Diego or California.

Bring Muslims back home

Days ago, supreme courts ruled against Donald Trump's muslim ban. Now, he is drafting a whole new ban, one which could stop more people from coming home to their families.   Imagine, you are a kid, whose father was away on buisness, a father which was a hard working American who migrated to the US to avoid persecution back home, imagine you are this kid who is being told by your mother that Dad won't come home. This isn't the dream America, where we all are free.  Even some with green cards are being heavily screened or unable to come back home, just because of their nationality.  The refugees from the banned nationalities are harmless. In fact, they haven't even commited a terrorist attack in 40 years.   This ban is hurting our economy, Muslim workers can't do their jobs because they can't go back to their homes. This ban is extremely discriminatory towards Muslims and doesn't help trying to make friends with countries we feud with.  In conclusion, this ban prevents people from coming back home to their jobs, friends, and family. This petition is bad for economy, it is discriminatory as it judges people by their ethnicity, banning them, even though these people have done nothing wrong, and, it is based of off the false idea that most people coming from these countries seek to do us harm, which is completly false.  Please sign my petition, and together, we bring Muslims back home to their families.
