Important update: On June 26, 2017, the Supreme Court said they would allow part of President Trump’s Executive Order to happen, starting on Thursday, July 29th, 2017.

 

The Executive Order was first made by President Trump in January and had been temporarily stopped by courts in the United States.

शरणार्थी र आप्रवासी तिनीहरूले स्वागत छन् बताउन एक शर्ट किन्न

The Supreme Court is the most powerful court in the United States. Their decision will be final until October. The decision may stop most refugee resettlement for the next 120 days and also prevents individuals from 6 countries (Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen) from travelling to the United States for the next 90 days.

हामी सबै शरणार्थी र आप्रवासी सन्देश स्वागत #ThisIsYourHomeToo साझेदारी गर्न चाहनुहुन्छ.

The decision does allow refugees or other individuals from the 6 countries who already have connections to the United States to still enter the U.S. For example, refugees who are coming through family reunification or individuals who attend college in the United States will be allowed to enter the United States. We do not know exactly which kinds of connections will be recognized.

During the 90 day ban, President Trump says the U.S. government will review the safety and security of the United States resettlement program. After this time, the resettlement program will hopefully start again. However, this decision will be up to President Trump, the government, and the courts in the United States.

Shirts and tanks cost $24. Kids shirts are also available for $15.

Read the update in your language. We will add more languages soon.

विश्व शरणार्थी दिवस जुन 20 औं छ

Send a visual message of welcome to refugees and immigrants. Many refugees and immigrants feel unwelcome in our country. Our goal is to have US-born individuals across the country wearing these shirts out so that newcomers can read, in their native language, messages of welcome. For newcomers to know there are so many who are grateful to have them as part of their communities. Refugees and immigrants: Welcome #ThisIsYourHomeToo!

From some of the languages most commonly spoken by newcomers in the United States:

Executive Order – Arabic

अरबी | फारसी (फारसी) | फ्रान्सेली | करेन | नेपाली | स्पेनी | स्वाहिली | भियतनामी

In the near future, we hope to add more languages and an option to find the most common languages spoken in your area.

यो परियोजनाको लागि प्रेरणा

This project was inspired by a local project started by Andrew Arehart in Nashville, Tennessee. Andrew held a booth at a local library where he had citizens wear Welcome shirts. For the past several years, USAHello’s outreach materials have focused on welcoming newcomers in their own languages. This year, some of our Refugee Technology and Advisory Council members suggested we do a tshirt project to welcome newcomers in their languages and we immediately thought of Andrew’s original project. With thanks and acknowledgement to Andrew.
