The Green Party of Utah Condemns the Separation of Families and Demands the defunding of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)

Salt Lake City, Utah - The Green Party of Utah (GPUT) is denouncing the U.S. Federal Government’s practice of separating children from their immigrant families and is demanding the dismantling of ICE to put an immediate halt on inhumane policies.

The Green Party Platform on Immigration stands firmly for social justice for all those living in this country regardless of their immigration status. Calling for humane policy and laws are consistent with Green Values, and the nation’s values.

“The State of Utah understands the importance of families,” says Abrian Velarde, GPUT candidate for House District 12. “Families are the cornerstone of our communities and the legacy of our heritage. I call upon our elected officials community leaders to stand against this abhorrent practice and to stand with our families to keep them together.”
