FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: PEACE Iowa Statement on the President's Executive Order on Immigration
IOWA CITY, IA

January 29, 2017 As a grassroots organization that promotes peace, the Peace Education and Action Center of Eastern Iowa (PEACE Iowa), its Board of Directors and members, is concerned about guarding the human rights of immigrants, refugees, people of color, other marginalized groups, and people of all faiths. We strongly condemn the President’s executive order on immigration, which indefinitely bars Syrian refugees from entering the United States, suspends all refugee admissions for 120 days, and blocks citizens of the following Muslim-majority countries, refugees or otherwise, from entering the United States for 90 days: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

The capricious nature of this ban, without regard for due process, is unjust in its treatment of refugees and other innocent travelers, unnecessarily separates families, and strands both American and foreign workers, impeding them from returning to their homes and workplaces. Moreover, these actions unnecessarily strain international relations and endanger the lives of Americans living abroad. We view the barring of travelers based solely on religion, race, nationality, or country of origin as being contrary to American values, and we call on all Iowans to peacefully protest and resist such laws and regulations, and to support individuals and organizations who are working to defend our nation's values in this area.


Signed,

Ann Stromquist, Board President
Lori Nelson, Director
Karen Nichols, Communications and Outreach Coordinator
