Shelbyville Loves in opposition to GOP proposals
To the Editor:
Shelbyville Loves helped to organize the resistance to racism in Shelbyville last October. At a recent rally we addressed the differences we have with the racist immigration policies of the Trump administration and the Republican majority in Congress.
We want affirmative action policies to remain in place at our universities. They want to sue our universities.
We want to stop health care discrimination by the government against women, LGBTQ and others in the name of religion. They want the government to increase it.
We want everyone who does the same work to be paid the same regardless of race, sex, and ethnic diversity. They want to freeze the rules that prevent discrimination.
We want real reform, a pathway to citizenship for all who have fueled our prosperity. They want a wall.
We want an end to religious discrimination in this country. They want a Muslim travel ban.
We want an end to racial discrimination in this country. They ended the Temporary Protected Status of 58,000 Haitians.
We want a clean bill for the DACA children. They want to use them for political gain.
We want to protect the strong and vibrant patchwork quilt of colors that is this country. They prefer a white sheet and hood.
