President Trump’s recent threats on immigrants and refugees run counter to IFT’s long-standing positions on these issues. We oppose these threats that are forcing many of our students, members, and their families to live in a state of uncertainty and fear. IFT members play a critical role in our communities, so it's important to know what you can do to support immigrant rights. We are here to help.
