You shall treat the stranger who resides with you as the native-born among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Creator your G-d. -Leviticus 19:34
You shall not wrong a stranger or oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. -Exodus 22:21
Because of our dedication to immigrants’ rights and human dignity, we here at the NE JLC strongly support the Safe Communities Act.
The Safe Communities Act would protect the civil rights of all state residents by making sure our tax dollars are not used to help the Trump Administration deport immigrant families or create a Muslim registry. This critically important bill is sponsored by State Sen. Jamie Eldridge (S.1305) and State Rep. Juana Matías (H.3269).
