NASW MS Chapter Response To Immigration Raids Tuesday, August 6, 2019
NASW MS is saddened, disappointed, and outraged by the raids
that disrupted the lives of 684 families. We stand with our immigrant community
who like many of us sent their children to school, went to work, and eagerly
anticipated the end of their workday so they could return home and hear about
their child’s first day. To read the full response from the NASW, Mississippi Board of Directors,

THOUGHTS REGARDING RECENT SHOOTINGS…..from the NASW, MS Executive Director, Janice Sandefur
I am reflecting on my shock, anger and horror at the mass shootings that took place over the weekend in El Paso and Dayton. The media has reported that the El Paso shooter, in his White Supremacist manifesto against immigrants from Mexico, released shortly before the shooting, used similar language as President Trump has used in speeches and tweets. It is my understanding that assault weapons were used in both mass shootings. As of August 4, the United States has had 250 mass shootings this year, including one in Southaven, MS. No other industrialized country in the world experiences this level of domestic terrorism.
