Bill protests immigration executive order

The immigrant community has suffered many blows in the last several weeks, from both official and unofficial sources. Unless you have been living in an isolation chamber, you have almost certainly already heard about the President Trump's executive order halting immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries. The response to the measure has been overwhelming, to say the least. It is understandable to be concerned or overwhelmed by the news, but there has also been some encouraging news in the wake of the frustrating order.

Georgia Democrats came together to author Bill 100 during a surge of support from local Georgians who swarmed Atlanta's international airport. The bill, which is largely symbolic, proposes that no person who is holding a valid visa should be obstructed from entering Georgia, or otherwise detained.

Whether the bill is successful, there is a groundswell of support in the community for immigrants of all kinds. Even as the current administration seems to be taking steps that may harm or further ostracize immigrants, Americans are stepping up to show their opposition to policies that place immigrants in danger.

Certainly, this is a difficult and dangerous time to be an immigrant in America — a strange sentence to write, considering that nearly all of the country's citizens are the descendants of immigrants by only a few generations. Still, it is important to stay vigilant and informed about your rights and ways you can keep yourself and your loved ones safe. If you have further questions about the changing legal landscape for immigrants, do not hesitate to contact an experienced attorney who can help you preserve your rights and stay safe.
