SLPS is making an official announcement, condemning the actions of the Trump Administration with the zero tolerance policy meant to deter asylum seekers to the U.S. We, the members of SLPS, stand with immigrants and believe in immigrants rights. We call on state leaders and our government to end the inhumane separation and detention of children. This act is unlawful and is inflicting unnecessary torture and trauma on those families.

Let us not forget the words of our Lady Liberte, Goddess of America Columbiana

The New Colossus, Emma Lazarus, 1883

“Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
MOTHER OF EXILES. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
