NCRC Statement on Trump Administration Executive Order Restricting Immigration from Seven Countries

Washington, DC – Today, in response to the implementation of a Trump Administration executive order sharply restricting travel and immigration from seven countries, the National Community Reinvestment Coalition’s (NCRC) President and CEO, John Taylor, made the following statement:

“NCRC stands for an inclusive society, where no matter your nationality, creed or color, you have opportunities to prosper and become a part of our diverse and vibrant system. This executive order is directly contrary to those principles. We are deeply saddened by the impact this capricious and discriminatory action is already having on families throughout the country. This ill-advised executive order should be reversed in its entirety. If the Trump Administration does not do so, Congress should take immediate action to block this measure.”

“We applaud former Acting Attorney General Yates’ bold and principled stand in directing Department of Justice attorneys not to defend this unconstitutional executive order,” said Stella Adams, NCRC’s Chief of Civil Rights.”It is critical that the Senate Judiciary Committee learn Senator Session’s position on this executive order.”

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
