Statement of NaFFAA National Chairman Brendan Flores on Trump’s Proposed Ban on Immigrants from the Philippines
As a national organization committed to inclusion, diversity and the empowerment of Filipinos in the United States who have contributed significantly as immigrants to this country’s cultural, economic and political life, we are deeply troubled by comments made recently by GOP Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump. In a recent speech in Maine, the latest in a series of divisive anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim statements, Mr. Trump lumped the Philippines among “terrorist nations” from where people should be denied entry to the United States.
We are pleased to announce that the organizers of the 2016 International Metropolis Conference have extended the deadline for both Early Bird registration and proposals for workshops and individual papers. Early Bird registrations, which offer reduced fees, will now be accepted until August 29. Proposals for workshops and individual papers can be sent until August 30.
