Christians and Jews joined together in a show of solidarity against President Donald Trump, gathering outside the White House to say: We want more Muslim migrants.
The protesters gathered at Lafayette Park, located just by the White House.
The rally was conducted on the one-year anniversary of Trump’s executive order that temporarily stopped those from certain terror-tied Muslim nations from coming to America.
Refugee Resettlement Watch has more:
We told you here that three US federal (taxpayer funded!) resettlement contractors were helping to organize a protest against the President’s so-called Muslim ban yesterday.
Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service activists were likely lurking, but Church World Service and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) were front and center of the small gathering.
Breitbart’s Penny Starr reported the news. …
Protesters gathered at Lafayette Park outside the White House on Saturday to slam President Donald Trump on the one-year anniversary of an executive order he issued to protect Americans from immigrants and refugees coming from terror-ridden countries with little or no vetting.
CAIR spokesman calls Trump Admin. white supremacists as all the white folk gathered around.
“We strongly condemn, like you, the racist and white supremacist beliefs reflected in President Trump’s remarks, actions and programs by this Muslim ban, the cancelling of DACA, the labeling of Black Lives Matter as identity extremists — a false designation,” Robert McCaw, director of Government Affairs Department of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said at the protest.
Church World Service is 71% federally funded (by my most recent accounting, here). Its CEO makes a quarter of a million annually.
What an insult that we fund them millions of our dollars every year for decades!
If you belong to any of these churches (below) know that Church World Service was representing you outside the White House yesterday.
They also hold the annual “Crop Walk,” so if you disagree with their political tactics you need to start speaking up!
