U.S. Election's Impact on El Salvador    

13781716_10154444254804301_3339461988707119207_n

It is estimated that over 2 million Salvadorans reside in the United States and about four-in-ten immigrants from El Salvador have been in the U.S. for over 20 years. Salvadorans living abroad have fled their country of origin seeking asylum as well as economic opportunity. With the outcome of the 2016 Elections, SHARE among many other organizations within our network are working in conjuction with the movement for establishing Sanctuary nationwide, beginning with establishing California as a sanctuary state. President-elect Donald Trump’s threat to deport over 3 million undocumented immigrants has set a sauntering atmosphere of fear in our community – afraid of the drastic measures that could have a catalytic effect and forever change the fate of refugees currently residing in the states.
 
Over the recent weeks, there have been many motivational leaders in support of sanctuary, such as President of the UC system and President of Santa Clara University reporting that they will not assist 
federal agents in immigration actions against students. 

Katherine, our valued donor, play a pivotal role in contributing to a taskforce of available resources that enourage a society of morally sound principles. Together we can humanize, rather than normalize, the refugees of our world.
