Quote of the Week
“The Maryland legislative session has just begun, and the new era of leadership has left advocates and community members feeling hopeful for real progressive change in Maryland. With diverse leaders in new leadership positions, a bright light of hope is shining on issues that have too long been held back.
“In contrast to the excitement about changes in the General Assembly, our disappointment has remained in the Trump administration’s continued verbal and enforcement attacks on immigrants. His leadership has ushered in greater attacks and promulgated misinformation across the country and certainly in Maryland — leaving immigrants feeling more vulnerable than ever. It’s critical that activists and advocates make it clear to our new Maryland leadership that immigration legislation must be prioritized this session.”
Cathryn Paul, a research and policy analyst at CASA, an immigration services and advocacy organization located in Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania.
