It was wrong then. It's wrong now.
In the last few months, too many American politicians have been hurling bigoted slurs like these at our nation’s immigrants.
We’ve heard this ugly kind of hatred before. Many of our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and millions of other Jewish immigrants, faced this same kind of hate when they arrived. We were called these very same things. We were told we’d never be real Americans.
The millions of immigrants living in the U.S. today were driven here by the same hope for a better life that brought so many of our ancestors here. They are our friends, our family, our neighbors, and they contribute to the life and economy of this nation as much as anyone.
Bend the Arc put this ad on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC to spark a critical conversation. Because denying the dignity of millions of Americans has no place in our national politics.
Join Bend the Arc and the American Jewish community in pledging to stand against anti-immigrant hatred. If thousands of us raise our voices together we can deliver the powerful message that our community refuses to be silent and put those using this hateful rhetoric on notice.
Will you add your name to our call and spread the word?
Raise your voice against anti-immigrant hatred:
The American Jewish community believes in the dignity of all people. We cannot allow the hateful anti-immigrant language and policies we’re seeing in national politics today go unchallenged. Enough is enough.
As a member of the American Jewish community, I stand against the anti-immigrant hatred arising in national politics today.
