Letter from Debra Cronmiller, LWV WI President

"Dear Voter Advocates,

Experts will be parsing the meaning of this extraordinary election year for a long time.

Please help the League continue to provide nonpartisan voter education and advocacy." Read more

League Statement on Immigration. 01/31/2017

The League of Women Voters President, Chris Carson, issued the following statement in response to President Trump's immigration ban:

"The League of Women Voters is opposed to deportation of non-criminal undocumented immigrants.

The League supports cities, towns, counties and states that make a decision not to cooperate with federal deportation and enforcement actions that include non-criminal undocumented immigrants. Moreover, the Trump Administration's orders are of dubious legality.

It is simply wrong, and a perversion of the American system of justice, for the Executive Branch to refuse to obey federal court orders.

The LWV is opposed to discrimination, including discrimination in immigration, based on religion. The Trump Administration's orders appear to be targeted at Muslims and immigrants from majority-Muslims nations."
