LGBTQ Asians Defend California’s Sanctuary Cities Ordinance
The National Queer Asian Pacific Islander (NQAPIA)
The National Queer Asian Pacific Islander (NQAPIA) is helping fight the Trump Administration’s lawsuits to block three laws passed in 2017 that curtail how private employers, local prisons and jails, and local law enforcement work with Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE). NQAPIA is taking a stance regarding the concerns of LGBTQ Asian American immigrants, because APIs are the fastest growing racial group in the United States today and the largest segment of new immigrants. An estimated 267,000 undocumented immigrants are LGBT.
