We all have the right to live in a society safe from gun violence. It's time our leaders prioritized protecting people's right to come home from work alive over anybody having access to a gun. Gun violence in the US is a human rights crisis.

Just a quick note : People asking for help ≠ an invasion. It's called helping those in need. Oh, a fulfilling our international obligations.

The real crisis is the horrific violence and persecution faced by desperate people and families who have fled the only homes they’ve ever known because they have nowhere else to go to seek safety.

President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency so he can bypass Congress and build a wall at the US-Mexico border is just one more effort to manufacture a crisis where there is none.

Everyone has the right to be treated with dignity, respect, and fairness, no matter their immigration status. No amount of federal funding should go toward building a wall or increasing the number of people unfairly detained for doing what any one of us would do in their shoes.

Additionally, many people come to the United States to reunite with family members who already live here.

People trying to rebuild their lives are not bringing crime and violence, but rather running from desperate situations. It is cruel to suggest they should stay in Mexico when it is not a safe third country for everyone.

While President Trump routinely invokes national security when discussing this manufactured crisis at the border, the reality for people arriving to the United States is very different.

Remind leaders that they must take action to protect people from gun violence. When people can’t go to school, or to work, or to attend a concert without fearing that they’ll be shot, that is a human rights crisis.
