Message from City Council President Zach Klein
City Council President Zach Klein released the following statement on the
immigration-related executive order by President Donald Trump:
Columbus City Council President, I am proud to represent one of the most
diverse cities in Ohio. Every day, we see how inclusive and welcoming policies
positively transform our neighborhoods and make Columbus a strong community
with a vibrant economy.
That is why the immigration-related executive
order by President Donald Trump is so troubling and disheartening.
Not only is this policy likely
unconstitutional, it undermines safety, separates families and pits people
against one another. Equally as important, it runs contrary to our country's
values and strikes at the heart of our fundamental humanity.
Columbus policies should always continue to
support a community where all residents and visitors feel safe and welcomed.
