Governor Baker: Offer Safety to Muslim Immigrants and Refugees

To be delivered to Governor Charlie Baker

Petition Statement

Give shelter to Muslim immigrants and refugees escaping persecution from the war-torn areas of the Middle East and Africa by declaring Massachusetts a safe space for the displaced persons impacted by Donald Trump's executive action titled, "Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States."
There are currently 6,551 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

America is founded on the beliefs of equality, tolerance, and refuge. When we turned our backs on refugees, in 1939, it was effectively a death sentence for them, and they joined the millions of Jewish people who lost their lives in the Holocaust.

As one of the most powerful nations in the world, we have a duty to protect those who are unable to protect themselves. It is morally unjust and unconstitutional for the country to carry out an anti-Muslim policy. The First Amendment of the Constitution clearly states that the government "shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion." This pertains to all religions, including Islam.

By signing this petition, we take part in an act of moral resistance. Stand against Donald Trump's offensive attack on Muslims and embrace and defend Middle Eastern and African immigrants and refugees.
